Following the reformation of the original roster that competed at i61, SVIFT have chosen to build a team in North America to compete in ESEA invite under the banner SVIFT NA. The team will be comprised of many familiar names to the invite division.

Roaming soldier garbuglio will return after playing for a short time last season with both froyotech and Velocity eSports, while pocket soldier highfive will hail from hibbleton, where he played demoman until their ultimate demise following events in a shuffle of players involving froyotech, garbuglio, and botmode. Demoman delpo will also be rejoining garbuglio and highfive, reuniting a trio that was part of the Season 22 iteration of EVL Gaming, which managed a fourth place finish that season.

Medic phorofor will also be making his return to invite after not competing since Season 24 with Jamal E-Sports, where the team netted a third place finish in the division. Joining him will be slemnish from last season's third place finishers Gnomercy and, oddly enough, Thaigrr from the European SVIFT roster. He will be the first scout to play outside of North America in ESEA invite since yuki in Season 14 with The Runaway 5.

garbuglio also provided us with a brief statement about the formation of team, saying:

We're looking forward to the season with high hopes, this team is brand new so we have some work to do but we think we could be very strong by playoffs, and hopefully beyond to LAN

The newly formed roster of SVIFT NA competing in ESEA invite Season 26 will be:

  • Scout: Thaigrr
  • Scout: slemnish
  • Roamer: garbuglio
  • Pocket: highfive
  • Demoman: delpo
  • Medic: phorofor

What is the typical ping from Britain to an East Coast US server? Does this present an issue for a scout?

Maros and Astt are on the EU roster, so both of them could sub in on the EU team, but the NA team has scizor and alec on their rosters, so I imagine there shouldn't be an issue

thank you! the countdown thing is when it takes the orders and ships them out, not when the sale ends. after the countdown it resets back to 3 or 4 days again. just clearing that up :)

if there's an NA vs EU showmatch it'd most likely be for lan, and thaigrr can only lan for one team
