A huge Rocket League org swap went down this week, and it's a perfect slice of esports weirdness

The defending Rocket League champions will try to win back-to-back titles at the RLCS Season 5 World Championships while competing under a new name. After spending the entire season as part of the Gale Force Esports organization, the squad of players Kaydop, ViolentPanda, and Turbopolsa have been lured away to the Dignitas organization.

Players switching teams is hardly unique in esports. Roster changes happen all the time. But this move is such a strange occurrence. Right in the middle of a season -- two weeks before the most important tournament -- Dignitas swooped in and claimed the trio that's probably the most heavily-favored team to win it all.

(There are a handful of teams that could reasonably be crowned champions. NRG, G2, Cloud9, and Team Vitality are all strong; but Gale Force, err, Dignitas is the top seed in Europe and its three players all have the experience of having won RLCS before.)
