Ascent completes starting roster with showstopper

October 10, 2017

With longtime soldier rando stepping down from the team recently, Ascent have been in hot pursuit of a 6th member to round out their starting lineup. And, as announced recently on Ascent's twitter, the team has confirmed their 6th member to be former Street Hoops eSports pocket soldier, showstopper. With this pickup, now former pocket soldier ma3laa will be returning to his renowned roaming soldier role to accompany the team's newest addition.

showstopper and ma3laa join forces to take on the rest of the ESEA Invite season (picture by Ness "uberchain" Delacroix and Jasmine "Jasbutts" Ho)

Ever since his last appearance at ESA Rewind LAN, showstopper has been inactive as far as league play goes, but has been spotted occasionally streaming competitive games, and his experience shows in his play. He has seen a number of other playoff place finishes with other teams, including fourth place finishes with Street Hoops in Season 19, third place finishes in Seasons 21 and 24 with Street Hoops eSports and Jamal E-Sports respectively.

However, his most impressive finish has to be his second place finish in Season 20 with Team SoloUber when they shocked the world and beat froyotech in the lower bracket finals, ending a dynasty of top placing finishes for the previously assumed immortal TF2 squad. Team SoloUber would end up falling in the grand finals to RONIN, but their mark on TF2 history had been made.

Scout yomps, again gave us a brief, but cheerful statement about their recent pickup:

:)

With their starting roster complete, the roster of Ascent ready to take on their opposition will be:

  • Scout: yomps
  • Scout: paddie
  • Roamer: ma3laa
  • Pocket: showstopper
  • Demoman: Bdonski
  • Medic: Nursey
