The window for HGC roster changes has closed, and we have shakeups in North America, Europe, and Korea. Below is the full rundown on who is transferring within, joining, and leaving the HGC in Phase 2. Keep in mind that HGC teams were only allowed to replace up to two players, and Open Division teams new to the HGC cannot make changes to their roster until the next transfer window.
