She's happier than she's ever been until she learns that multiple players from her team, friends she's been playing with for years, have been cut and replaced with the most talented players from teams around the area. Her new team will be made up of old rivals. That's not the only thing that's changing, either. MadCat wants a chance to be the best, but will the outcome be worth the cost?
