It became clear to Team Secret officials as well as to the fans that the organization needs to do something in order to bring back Team Secret from such a bad performance in the playoffs. With the post-Kiev Major Shuffle started on May 3rd, Team Secret has opted for changing their roster. It seems that they have settled on a new player. Johan ‘pieliedie’ Åström has been playing in Team Secret longer than any other player ever. However it seems that his time in this organization has come to an end. The organization has announced that he will be leaving the team. Over his time with Team Secret, pieliedie has become a legend in the team. fFor a long period of time it was almost impossible to image Team Secret without him, but apparently, that did not stop the team officials from releasing this player.
Team Secret will not spend a lot of time searching for a replacement for pieliedie. They have already announced that Yazied ‘YapzOr’ Jaradat will be joining the team.

Before joining Team Secret YapzOr has been playing for European team called B)Ears but that time did not exist a long time before they got disbanded. Besides bringing in YapOr as a replacement for Yazied ‘YapzOr’ Jaradat, Team Secret has also announced that their Clement ‘Puppey’ Ivanov will no longer be playing the hard support.
