Welcome to #HaloRostermania, where the players are all gunning for a World Championship winning roster, and announce their free agency and teams via Tweets.
Cody “ContrA” Szczodrowski has confirmed via Twitter that he will no longer be with Allegiance, and has signed paperwork that pertains to his release from the organization.

He also further confirmed his release on his Twitch channel, which at the time of writing is still broadcasting.
There is no knowledge of his future team, but there was a Team Beyond tournament last night, and a certain team that Contra played on does provide some “inteL” on what his next move will be.
The team in question contains three other pros in Tyler “Spartan” Ganza, Visal “eL TowN” Mohanan, and Devon “PreDevoNatoR” Layton. inteL lost to ESML side Most Wanted in the second round, while a side containing Fall Season champion Cuyler “Huke“ Garland and Jesse “bubu dubu” Moeller won the entire tournament.
This tournament definitely churns the rumor mill of what pros are considering moves or have been dropped. However, this seems to be the time that most pros are getting a feel for other teammates to see what works before UGC St. Louis, an event that will give out three World Championship spots. Any teams formed in these next few weeks should be taken at face value.
At the same time though, #Rostermania is alive and well, and this pre-St. Louis month should be interesting.
An explanation from Team Allegiance is to be expected at a later date.
