The addition of Simon 'Handsken' Haag in particular should have a huge impact on results.
The hunt begins for Digital Chaos to find a new fifth member as a few hours ago the organisation posted on their website that they will now be in need of a new support player following the team failing to reach 'a certain expectational level'.
