After the league ended, the two players joined team F16 Esports to compete in Saudi eLeague 2023. Rupal is also another Toronto Defiant player who once played alongside Someone and Mer1t under Florida Mayhem.
Meanwhile, Sugarfree previously played for Timeless alongside Rupal and Vega. Currently, he's the youngest player on a pro Overwatch 2 team.
