Three SA teams announced new rosters over this past weekend, with pe Mad Kings and br SG e-sports revealing new rosters while pe Infamous announced a secondary "Young" roster. New roster:1 – Guilherme "FuckinEh"2 – Adriano "4dr"3 – Rodrigo "Lelis"4 – "Thiolicor"5 – Lucas ''bardo''— SG e-sports (@SGe_sports) September 10, 2017

The new SG e-sports roster bears very little resemblance to the one we saw take down Team Secret at The Kiev Major. Just 4dr has remained with the team, while the rest of the squad is made up of four new Brazilians.

All four come to the team from Midas Club Elite, a fellow Brazilian organization. The team played very well in the round robin stage of the TI7 SA qualifier but lost to SG e-sports in the lower bracket final.

SG e-sports roster:
br Guilherme 'Costabile' Silva Costabilé
br Adriano '4DR' Machado
br Rodrigo 'Lelis' Santos
br Lucas Raphael 'Bardo' Barbosa
br Thiago de Oliveira 'Thiolicor' Cordeiro

New Squad 2017 - 2018 #InfamousYoung1. @Benjazdota 2. Robo-Z3. Nada4. Dominic5. @WuDotA— Infamous Young (@InfamousYoungGG) September 9, 2017

Infamous already have one of the best squads in SA, so they've decided to foster new talent as well and picked up a secondary squad, fittingly naming it Infamous Young.

Infamous' carry at TT7, Benjaz, will be the experienced (and oldest) member of the squad, while the rest range from age 16-19.

Mad Kings

Finally, Mad Kings have also made significant changes to their roster. Two players remain from pre-TI. sl4d1n- joined in June of this year while Atun has been around a bit longer, since December 2016. The most well known newcomer to the roster is Greedy, who gained international attention through competing at The Frankfurt Major with Team Unknown, who made it to the event through both the open and regional mixed NA/SA qualifiers.

Mad Kings roster:
pe Alexis 'Greedy' Ventura
pe Juan 'AtunnN' Ochoa
pe Jose Andree 'Sword' Nicosia

ec Alexis 'slad1n' Cepeda

Update: Mad Kings have made another Facebook post to announce that Atun has left the team on the eve of qualifiers to join Digital Chaos' South American squad. They have not found a replacement yet.
