However, that hierarchy changed during their big break in the 2021 APAC Last Chance Qualifier, where they advanced to the grand final and narrowly lost to FULL SENSE FULL SENSE Asia-Pacific Rank #6 JohnOlsen Chanawin Nakchain ChAlalala Chanitpak Suwanaprateep PTC Kititkawin Rattanasukol LAMMYSNAX Elamrahim Khanpathan THEE Thanaphat Limpaphan in a 3-2 series, just one step away from Champions. Astell soon left at the end of November while Meiy was released as the organization dissolved the roster in December.
