During the past three months, Ground Zero struggled to produce significant results in Oceania following disappointing finishes in the domestic leagues including ESL Australia & New Zealand Championship Season 6 (9-10th) and most recently, the inaugural season of Gfinity Elite Series Australia (5th).
The aforementioned duo will step into the shoes of Indonesian in-game leader Wilson "willyKS" Sugianto and subordinate Laken "Kaotik" Dutcher, who have been given their marching orders. On TwitLonger, willyKS revealed that he is on the lookout for a new team, while Kaotik will "most likely be taking a step back and focussing on studying instead".
According to the squad's veteran coach Peter "PeetyG" Souvlis, NikkeZ has been assigned the in-game leader position. The revamped Australian roster will now be looking to improve on their current standings for CyberGamer Premier League Winter 2018 and ESEA MDL Season 28 Australia.
Ground Zero's current roster is as follows:
