All good things must come to an end, and that’s exactly what happened with Team Secret’s Age of Empires II roster, as TheViper and co. parted ways with Team Secret after playing under the organization’s banner for two years.
It has been an amazing journey with our Age of Empires team but our paths now diverge.— Team Secret (@teamsecret) July 27, 2020
We thank them for these past two years and wish them nothing but good Wololo vibes in the future 🙏
Thank you #SecretAoE 🖤

The exact reason for the the split hasn’t been mentioned, but the word around is, the roster could not reach an agreement with the organization for a new contract. However, the parting of the ways was amicable. TheViper thanked Team Secret for putting their trust in the team when no one was ready to take a chance on the game.

They took a chance on us and AOE2 when noone else did, and being a part of the team has been an incredible experience. They treated us with upmost respect and helped wherever possible. Even knowing we were leaving, they gave advice and support. I will be forever grateful, and I will cheer for you guys going forward!
It’s been an honor to be a little part of your history.
Thank you for everything Team Secret <3
Team Secret were also nice enough to put up a video compilation of some of the players in the roster.
Team Secret dominated the past two years of the AoE II esports scene and won most of the things that came their way. The last big tournament they played in, Battle of Africa 2, saw them take second place after a 5-4 grand final loss against AfterMath. Where do they go from here? No idea. We will have to wait and see which organization, if any, wins the race to sign the most successful roster in Age of Empires II.
