The majority of the players on the Pioneers have been playing together since Halo 5, where they started to gain traction. The team placed Top 6 at the Raleigh Major, NA Regional in Anaheim, and Kansas City Major. After KC, the org traded Manny to eUnited in return for Nick. The new roster competed in the NA Super this past weekend where they placed Top 8, qualifying for Pool Play in the upcoming Orlando Major.
Co-Founder of KCP, LJ Browne has also posted a tweet that says the org will a formal statement from the org is coming:
Official statement coming out from @PioneersGG tomorrow on why we’re planning to exit HCS. No it’s not just because we didn’t get partnered, no it’s not because we “don’t have the backing”, and no its not because we placed T8 for the first time in a major… an online one.
