I agree that it has looked awful, but some teams need to look awful before they find their coms and their role distribution. Just remember Vitality after Alex left. Looked like they were going to drop out of top 20.
Why don't you think Alex is possible? EspiranTo, OttoNd and SHiPZ are quite talented players. C0ntact got money, they need to climb the rankings not to get fined by Flashpoint and Alex wanna plsy in a Flashpoint team.
The issue might be the contract of Snappi. If he has a long contract they might find it hard to sub him.
Unless they miraculously get 2k or more in he next RMR event they will miss out on the Major, which I guess is unacceptable for the org.
So I think we will see some notable changes after Dreamhack RMR
