On April 18th, long time top lane player Angush would be kicked from the team due to a "[clash] of personality within the team". Xinec stated that "Angush became increasingly disrespectful towards every other person in the team. This escalated to the point where we honestly felt that we didn't want to be in a team with him any longer. Since Malunoo, Sleper, Extinkt and myself wanted to carry on playing as a team, we decided that the best solution was to part ways with Angush. Five days later, Absolute Legends would welcome Joey "Youngbuck" Steltenpool as their new top laner, replacing Angush.
