Soon after, Hitbox moved to coaching and was replaced by Jonba. They would bring in the fifth and final SuperStars member, eXerZ, as a stand-in after a few decent performances in local competitions. They had some decent results in Europe with this lineup, but their true success came in the Spanish scene, where they would reach the finals of several LVP Genesis Cups and high finishes in the NGL Open and GameGune 22.

The quality and amount of eSports bets accessible vary substantially from one sportsbook to another. Match betting, or betting on the outcome of a game or a more significant event, is currently the most popular type. However, some of the industry's best eSports betting websites, including 1xBet, Pixel.bet, Betwinner, are experimenting with "live" or "in-play" betting, which involves placing bets on events occurring during the match.

In-play markets are challenging to set up and maintain in traditional sports. Thus, it will be a long time before there are good live betting choices for a wide range of eSports events at an extensive range of bookies.
