corsa out, ninjanick in for froyotech

February 22, 2016

froyotech has decided to remove corsa from its starting roster with immediate effect, with Freestate taking his place, ninjanick from Team SoloUber joining the team to play medic, and former starter Decimate being released from the roster.

This is only the latest in a series of changes for the team since its surprising elimination at the end of the Season 20 playoffs, after which many of its players stepped down. For Season 21, the team picked up the remnants of former Invite team Strawberry Mangoes to compete in the highest division once again. The team also initially planned to play with veteran Decimate, but he soon stepped down due to schedule conflicts and was replaced by clockwork.

The season itself has also seen a lot of adjustments and role changes. Freestate, normally known for his scout play, has been playing medic with Decimate and then clockwork in the lineup. The team has also tried out b4nny swapped from pocket to scout, with corsa as roamer and paddie on pocket, finding early success in the season. However, the three switched back to their normal roles after a close loss to EVL Gaming in Week 3. The current lineup was not working well enough, however, leading to the latest changes.

As part of this recent shift, Freestate will be moving back to his more familiar role of scout, a role which he has been noted for since his Invite debut in Season 18 as part of Nice Nice Nice. ninjanick, meanwhile, brings significant medic experience to the team, making his Invite debut in Season 13 as part of Vector Gaming. While he has played for team rival Team SoloUber since Season 17 (then known as Street Hoops eSports), he did notably play medic for froyotech during GXL 2015, helping them capture their last title before their elimination in the Season 20 playoffs by none other than Team SoloUber and subsequent breakup.

We have reached out to the team for comment and will update the article as we find out more.

With the recent slew of changes, froyotech's lineup has become:

  • Scout: clockwork
  • Scout: Freestate
  • Roamer: paddie
  • Pocket: b4nny
  • Demoman: Muma
  • Medic: ninjanick

Picking up the medic of a rival team halfway through the season seems like a massive dick move to me.

Equally dickish by nick in my opinion, but then again what do we really know? Mayhaps nick and the rest of TSU weren't getting along.

what's more of a dick move, picking up a rival team's medic, or joining the rival team as their medic. you make it sound like nick had no choice whatsoever

when I saw this last night I assumed that freestate was getting cut and not corsa

it must be a personality thing and not really a quality of play thing since corsa was playing pretty well from what I saw :()

To those who think it's a "dickish" move by nick, take in account that he joined a better team in which he can achieve better results. He did really well at GXL playing with banny so it should be a good transition for both parties.

Light a candle for corsa [*]
