The complete Duos roster has yet to be revealed, but it's worth noting that Fall Skirmish introduces a new team-focused concept called Clubs. They essentially operate like houses in Harry Potter. Your favorite streamers will be drafted to specific Clubs that they will represent for the entire Fall Skirmish season. In addition to cash prizes, players will also be competing for Club Points tied to those earnings. The Club with the most points at the end of the Season wins a $4 million prize. The club names are listed below.
