Mid-season roster changes are always a toss-up. Yet, for Shopify Rebellion, it proved to be a masterstroke that yielded success. The introduction of Vanity and moose to their lineup brought about a remarkable transformation for the team. The most notable of them was their win against M80, the upcoming opponent and tournament hot favorite, in a dominating fashion. Whether they can repeat the gigantic task in the opening day of the playoffs remains to be seen.
