ETF2L premiership team Weebtunnel Tactics, currently 6th place in Season 28, have announced a change to their starting lineup. Pocket vani has been cut from the team due to fading interest and dedication, caused by a lack of enjoyment in the game. To fill this gap, jimb0t will be returning to the roster as the team’s demoman, with WARHURYEAH moving to pocket to accommodate the team’s new acquisition.
jimb0t was last seen with the team in Season 27 in High, when Weebtunnel Tactics (then known as Loli Squad) won the division and were promoted to the premiership division. This will be his first season competing with Europe's best, and will be looking to make a strong ending to the season as they approach their penultimate official.
Team leader Bloodis shared his thoughts on the change, saying:
After tobs, who ended up leaving our team right before the season started, we decided to get vani as our main pocket for this season when he was pretty much the only available person we already had experience playing with in the past, as he was a sub for us couple seasons before. He did show a good amount of interest and dedication to his role on his first weeks, but afterwards most of that was no longer to be seen as he said that he not only was personally not able to do much as he could have with the current metagame that TF2 is having at Premiership level, but having spent most of his free time after work getting spent on something he didn't enjoy anymore in the same way as he used to. After talking to him how our team wanted to keep on improving and stop making the very simple mistakes that our team was making at the time, he agreed to what was said and ended up being fine with getting cut from the team.
Shortly after that we were facing couple issues with cutting someone before considering of replacements for it, as most of it happened very spontaneously, we tried looking for new suitable pocket players for our team but had no luck with it. However luckily jimb0t then offered to play for us again which I am really glad about personally, letting us finish up this season. As jimb0t himself didn't mind playing pocket or demoman, WAR wanted to go as pocket himself since most of us from the team have more experience with having jimb0t playing as our demoman, allowing WAR's offclassing capabilities to be in use alongside as well when needed.
Moving forward, the new roster for Weebtunnel Tactics is:
- Scout: Bloodis
- Scout: nuthouse
- Roamer: Ignis
- Pocket: WARHURYEAH
- Demoman: jimb0t
- Medic: Menty
