In an announcement, Disguised Toast noted that DSG players can now pursue opportunities in the League Championship Series (LCS). He added that the team's accomplishment in the NACL proved everyone's worth and value as players.
In early August, team DSG won the NACL 2023 Summer Playoffs and earned the bulk of the $100,000 USD prize pool. DSG players fought against teams such as AOE Gold, FlyQuest Challengers, Cincinnati Fear, and Evil Geniuses Challengers.
Here's the list of DSG players:
- Aaron "FakeGod" Lee

- Young Ho "Young" Choi
- Brandon "Meech" Choi

"Our agreement with each of them was set so that after the season, they can all pursue LCS opportunities freely and without any kind of restrictions as LCS orgs look to revamp their roster for next year," the announcement stated. It also went into esports pathways.
"Each of them are amazing players and deserve the chance to play on the biggest stage in North America," Disguised Toast wrote. "As an NACL team, there is currently no pathway for any DSG players to work their way up to LCS as long as they remain on the team."
Disguised Toast then vouched for each player's work ethic while highlighting the contributions of head coach Greyson Gregory "Goldenglue" Gilmer and analyst Rahim "Rast" Raza.
In terms of the future, Disguised Toast stated that DSG will stay in the NACL for 2024.
