Uxako shared a screenshot of a statement by Aurora member ojrein that was sent to him. A lack of “synergy” has been cited as the reason behind the decision.

This resulted in the team bringing in Uxako from another team, Entropiq. However, even that didn’t work out as the three players couldn’t find their flow while competing in the group stages.
