North American roster news has been plentiful as of late, with sponsorships and roster shuffles taking place recently. For Hibbleton however, their news is at a low note, as they’ve chosen to call it quits for this season.
The team began to see rough waters when froyotech’s pocket garbuglio chose to step down from the roster due to froyo’s decline from i61. He was replaced by Hibbleton’s pocket soldier botmode, whose departure along with other circumstances, lead to the team’s ultimate demise.
EvilMrMuffinz spoke to teamfortress.tv about the team's disbandment:
botmode left for froyo at the same time as I began traveling absent [from my] computer. highfive talked about possibly playing for another team and Scizor (if I recall correctly) was either unmotivated or had computer issues. Also, when Vand left, or planned to leave, we had no real leader; no scrims, no direction, no match times. Death.
I'll tell one thing - i'd feel a lot worse if I hadn't joined Faint a week after. I feel sorry for those of them who spent 85 dollars to play a couple of matches. I especially always wanted to play on a team with botmode, [because] we share a birth date. I particularly feel bad for alec, I wanted to see him unleash 240hz upon his enemies.
The team formerly known as Hibbleton was:
- Scout: alec
- Scout: Scizor
- Roamer: botmode
- Pocket: EvilMrMuffinz
- Demoman: highfive
- Medic: Vand
