ImageAfter placing 2nd at the iSeries 46 two weeks ago, Prophecy changed their roster.

Team changes after big tournaments like EGL and iSeries are normal. Now Prophecy announced that they bought the contract from TCM for SMG player Jake 'Jake' Dalton. Placing 2nd at iSeries was under Prophecy's expectations and it was clear that team manger Oli 'Acid' Sellors has to change something till Dreamhack Valencia to reach a better placement with his team. The new formed apeX MW3 team with ex-SK player "Joshh" will also attend as a top contender for them.

Just a few days after the tournament Prophecy announced that they dropped captain Ash 'Sowerz' Sowersby and they will try to replace him. One big favorite for the team was TCM player Jake 'Jake' Dalton, which had a contract with TCM at that time, had no other chance then to buy him out from TCM.

Shane 'Shane' McKerral will now adopt the role of the team captain, taking over former player Ash.

Manager Oli in a little statement to

"Really happy to have Jake back with me, ever since we went to MLG he's always been a player I liked. With us actually purchasing him from TCM for an undisclosed fee, I feel now that the team is stronger than ever before as they know how much it means that we have invested in him. People also need to take this as a moment to see how fast eSports is growing, and slowly becoming like mainstream sports. Contracts aren't to be taken as a joke anymore and people should know the implications before signing. I will also be once again streaming from the end of the week with the team so make sure you check out for more updates."
