This season we welcome four new Invite teams into the division, meaning matches between all these rosters could be extremely fierce. One of these new squads is myanimelist.net. With a combination of older and newer talent, they will try to make a name for themselves among the competition. The team features scouts phlps and Kev, who played for Season 25 Invite teams Faint Gaming and LunatiK eSports respectively. Pocket soldier goldfish has been on a few Invite teams in the past, including a brief stint with Faint Gaming just last season. Rounding out the roster is demoman safrix, roaming soldier trippa, and medic aZn.
Most of the players on myanimelist.net have been teammates with each other at some point in time. Besides goldfish and phlps on Faint Gaming, safrix and aZn were on 2nd place Open team Muscle March last season. Previously, safrix and trippa were Open champions as part of the Muffin Men combo back in Season 18, and had a three season run in Intermediate as well. trippa went on to win Intermediate in Season 22 with dead babies mad gunz along with phlps. Finally, aZn and Kev placed 3rd in Season 24 Intermediate with conner and the coons. All of the players except aZn have had some form of Invite experience, and their prior history on various teams could give them an edge in cohesion over the other new teams that are playing together for the first time.
Here's what trippa had to say regarding this team and this season:
Our team formed from a group of friends early in the offseason and surprisingly we haven't managed to die yet. Invite should be fun to play in and follow this season with all the new chimps in the division. We have formed a blood pact between each member to live the Nofap Vegan™ lifestyle all season to give us the power to make playoffs. Good luck to all the other teams and players this season, except for sandblast. VoHiYo
