Winterfox reveal new roster
Winterfox has officially announced their new roster via Facebook, featuring a line-up from the Oceania region with the majority being Australian and the rest occupied by New Zealanders.
Earlier in the week, ESL updated its fantasy game before the Pro League matches began. They accidentally leaked some changes, which had not been revealed by the organisations involved, including the additions made by CLG.
To no one’s surprise, the new Winterfox squad will consist of former members from Immunity, Legacy and Chiefs. Following in the footsteps of their Australian brothers at Renegades, Ryan "zewsy" Palmer and company will move over to the USA to compete. Alexander "LeX" Deily and Warren "hades" Rettich of the former roster, will be standing alongside these players.

In the announcement, here is what Chris "emagine" Rowlands said on their pick up:
“We're excited and grateful for this opportunity, to those that have supported us we appreciate it. We look to expand Australia's reach on the world stage and further represent our nation to the best of our ability.”
Despite losing their trio of David "Xp3" Garrido, Todd "anger" Williams, and Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez, who departed to form a new team with two Swedish players, it has been revealed by ESL that the NA Pro League spot will stay with the Winterfox organisation. Therefore, the Australian-New Zealand mixture are set to play in the Pro League instead of the former line-up who are currently searching for a new home.
Ulrich Schulze, ESL's Vice President of Gaming, stated on Tuesday that a league spot belongs to an organisation and not to a team. Regardless of ESL reviewing this case, not everyone is happy with the decision made. This is due to different results for other teams and organisations in a similar situation, such as Luminosity and SK Gaming.
Winterfox now have the following roster:
