In an unfortunate turn of events, Faint Gaming has announced that they will discontinue to sponsor their Invite roster, as well as their other TF2 rosters in RGL and ESEA Open. Their RGL and ESEA Open teams, unlike their invite team, will carry the brand's name until the end of their respective seasons.
A recent number of issues have eventually brought the organization to come to this decision, with troubles bringing in now medic mason and now pocket aim to the active roster in place of former medic meyy and former demoman campy being the most recent issue that the organization has been faced with with their invite rote.
Faint Gaming COO Kredible posted on the teamfortress.tv forums about the matter, saying:
We are sad to announce that Faint Gaming will be taking an indefinite break from the TF2 scene. We'd like to take the time to say it not only has been nothing but a positive learning experience. It's been great to see the TF2 competitive scene still continuing to attract sponsors along with increasing attention given by ESEA to the scene. We will continue to support our RGL team and our Open team for the remaining of their seasons. On behalf from our staff, thank you to all our players, our fans, and to everyone in the TF2 community for making our journey an exciting and enjoyable one.
With that being said, the team is still planning on finishing the ESEA Invite season with the addition of mason and aim on medic and pocket soldier respectively. Additionally, the team's former pocket soldier, dingo will be moving back to demoman, leaving this reformed roster noticeably different than its previous iteration.
With mason and dingo reunited for the first time since the Season 20 iteration of woodpig that contained harbleu, squid, acrocijet, and milo, who qualified for that season's playoffs and ended up placing 4th overall. The current team has elected to rebrand under a spin off of that banner as woodpig quantum.
Reformed and ready to take on the rest of Season 26, woodpig quantum will be:
- Scout: yight
- Scout: bo4r
- Roamer: laz
- Pocket: aim
- Demoman: dingo
- Medic: mason
