Daniel "Artosis" Stemkoski and Nicolas "Tasteless" Plott remained the casters for Code Sicon.png.

At the start of the season, Kelly "kellyMILKIES" Ong Xiao Wei was hired as a Code Aicon.png caster to give all casters an easier casting schedule.[1] She cast the Code Aicon.png games together with either Tasteless or Artosis until March 7, when another new caster, Erik "doa" Lonnquist began casting the Code Aicon.png Ro8 along with Kelly.
