froyotech swaps out garbuglio for botmode

June 25, 2017

In light of b4nny’s announcement that froyotech would not be making the overseas travel to i61, pocket soldier garbuglio has also announced that he will discontinue playing for the team due to a lack of motivation and froyo’s ultimate withdrawal from i61. In garbuglio’s place, b4nny revealed that the 6th member of their roster will be botmode, one of the soldiers from Hibbleton.

garbuglio was acquired from EVL Gaming after the end of Season 24 when froyo's former medic, Nursey, chose to step down from the team and rejoin EVL. Sequentially, EVL parted ways with their former medic, cookiejake, and chose to pick up another former froyotech member in the form of paddie to fill their vacant soldier spot left by garbuglio, who was playing roaming soldier.

botmode has been seen filling in for froyotech during non-ESEA matches when a temporary replacement was needed, and was previously a part of the Season 21 EVL Gaming roster with Hassassin, arekk, and Nursey. He'll now be reuniting with Hassassin and arekk as froyo looks to win another ESEA title.

b4nny explained the reasoning behind the roster change on TwitLonger:

Another unfortunate consequence of us not going to [i61] is that garbuglio is stepping down as our pocket soldier. He joined our team with the expectation of attending LANs with our team, starting with i61, so the loss of the LAN was a big blow to his motivation. From the very beginning, he was crystal clear about his conditions for playing this season so his decision is a fair one. For the remainder of the season our starting pocket soldier will be botmode, who we feel is the strongest possible replacement we could have gotten. Our goal is still to win ESEA-I S25. After that, who knows, but I do have all intentions of taking a full froyotech team to Rewind LAN should it happen again next year.

Following these changes, the roster of froyotech now consists of:

  • Scout: arekk
  • Scout: b4nny
  • Roamer: blaze
  • Pocket: botmode
  • Demoman: Hassassin
  • Medic: shade

That EVL roster was the Getawhale Fanclub roster from early 2016.

Kinda sad if this results in the death of Hibbleton (looking like it will).

Still I suppose week 4 before the first team death isn't bad when compared to recent seasons.

Focus on the positives though, I'm sure Botmode will play well with Froyo :)

When I left I tried to ensure the team wouldn't die but some stuff has happened and scizor's computer went boom so now I'm not sure if people know, I think all the roster transfers might've been used up, which might be the nail in the coffin.

It would be weird to call them that since the whole reason Botmode is playing is that Froyo won't go
