froyotech disbands

November 24, 2015

The legendary dynasty of North American powerhouse froyotech came to an end in the early hours of Tuesday as they lost a very tightly contested lower bracket final to Team SoloUber, thus breaking their perfect record of qualifying for every grand final.

ash, their scout, had left earlier in the night after having disputes with the team during the first map of Sunshine, leaving the team to bring in seymour to substitute. Despite this substitution, which led to them tying the series back up after a dominant map win on Gullywash, the team was unable to ultimately come out on top in a very closely fought game on Granary that had exhausted the full length of regulation and gone into overtime.

As a result, all of the players on the team with the exception of team captain b4nny have decided to hang up their hats and move on from TF2.

clockwork, the team's star scout, offered us the following thoughts:

Overall, my experience with froyotech was very positive. froyotech was a one-of-a-kind team, and our performance has created a legacy. Even though we didn't end things in the most impressive way, I feel accomplished as a TF2 player. Many of our teammates, since the release of Overwatch, have had waning interest in TF2 (myself included). As a result, our team cohesion took a heavy hit.

Personally, I'm going to concentrate on Overwatch and probably back up for another Invite team.

froyotech, which ends without having lost a LAN title (including two world championships), fielded the following main players throughout its history:

  • - b4nny (captain)
  • - ash
  • - blaze
  • - clockwork
  • - dummy
  • - duwatna
  • - lansky
  • - Ruwin
  • - serv0
  • - shade

It's crazy to think that the last time b4nny didn't make the finals was back in 2010. I hadn't even played tf2 in a pub at that point. So much has changed since then. International lans, matchmaking, a bunch of unlocks, the list goes on. It's crazy to think that this dynasty of b4nny teams is potentially over, but on the flip side it makes me really look forward to what all these great up and coming teams will end up doing next season. Some of these up and coming players weren't even 9 or 10 years old when these now-retiring vets started playing tf2, and that's just a crazy thought that I can't wrap my head around. This game has been around for so long, and it doesn't stop getting better.

Froyo, I know you cared. You'll be missed.

if b4nny has to make a LFT, it will be the most surreal fucking thing on the planet to me

like... b4nny has been in finals every season for as long as I've even been aware tf2 had a comp scene at all

I loved to hate this team, it was a hell of a ride, and while it's over, super excited to see what team b4nny pulls together next season

When I first came in touch with the TF2 competitive scene, it was when team Froyotech was first formed. I've been a Froyotech-fan ever since. Thinking about all the things that Froyotech achieved since they were formed, and how they ended up really gave me goosebumps.
It doesn't matter if they are continuing to play TF2 or moving on to Overwatch, I wish best of luck for all the former players of Froyotech.
Thank you for all the entertainment and legendary games that you guys have played.
Good Game.

Whilst It's understandable Valve really wants to do a great job with matchmaking, if they don't "Step on it" or get it out soon, TF2 may literally die (or at least the comp side) due to OW. Sure the mm may bring new players, but if at this rate we continually lose players/teams, there will be no "Veterans" to make the competition more intense.
