theScore esports Daily is a once-a-day briefing covering the top news stories from around the world of esports.

apEX and NBK- part ways with G2, join Vitality

Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt and Dan "apEX" Madesclaire have parted ways with G2 Esports, the organization announced on Monday.

The two players had been members of G2 since February 2017, where they were signed alongside Kenny "kennyS" Schrub. They were benched, however, after G2 kicked off 2018 with a disappointing start.

The two players have since signed with Vitality's newly-minted CS:GO roster, that organization announced on Monday.

The formation of this roster marks the first time that Vitality, a franchise known for their EU LCS League of Legends team, have entered CS:GO.

Romain Bigeard, Arrow and KyKy all part ways with OpTic

Amidst a series of layoffs at OpTic Gaming's parent company, Infinite Esports & Entertainment, Romain Bigeard announced Monday on Twitter that he has left his role as General Manager of OpTic's League of Legends team, citing "a difference of opinion regarding the future of the LoL department."

Houston Outlaws coach Kyle Souder also took to Twitter to announce that he'd been let go by the company.

Lastly came League of Legends player Noh "Arrow" Dong-hyeon's announcement that he would be departing from the organization after having been granted "permission to explore other team possibilities."

Dendi to stand in for Team Secret

Former Natus Vincere superstar Danil "Dendi" Ishutin will be serving as Team Secret's stand-in over the course of the week, the organization announced Tuesday on Twitter.

Dendi played under the banner of Natus Vincere for a whopping eight years and, since departing from the organization in September, has started standing-in for a variety of other teams. He'll be joining Secret for the Dota 2 Maincast Autumn Brawl Playoffs.

Immortals drop Shroomed, exit Smash

Immortals have parted ways with Super Smash Bros. Melee player Dajuan "Shroomed" McDaniel, the organization announced on Monday, as well as manager Michael "Typo" Bassett.

This would seem to mark Immortals' exit from competitive Smash, following the recent departure of Jason "ANTi" Bates.
