In #YesMeansYes, Hunter, Vijay, Yael and Baaz are in gym class when Vijay is hit in the face with a basketball during intramurals, so Hunter replace Vijay in the game and his friends cheer for him. They're together when Tristan tells them that the gamer club has been approved by the Degrassi Student Council.

In #ButThatsNoneOfMyBusiness, Vijay and Yael both participate in the video game competition.

In #NotAllMen, they both compete against another video game team and barely win. The video game club dresses up in cosplay and make a commercial to try and raise the money they need to go to Regionals. Vijay loves the commercial they made, but Yael was worried that people would make fun of them for it. However, the club gets shut down regardless, due to complaints of misogyny and celebrating sexual violence, leaving its members upset. Vijay, Yael, and Baaz all agree to follow and help Hunter with his revenge because no one has ever fought for them before.
