After the recent departure of longtime scout yomps from Ascent to froyotech, the team has been hard at work assembling a roster of top players to compete against the competition in ESEA Invite this upcoming season. And just recently, the organization has revealed their new roster via twitter.
The team's overhaul after the departure of yomps left only three remaining members from the original roster. For showstopper and sandblast, they were not part of the three that would remain of the postseason roster that competed in Season 26. This left 2 scout spots and a roaming soldier role open for up and comers to grab.
Filling one of these roles will be corsa, who initially stepped down from the team as a starter to a backup role for ESEA Season 26. The team's other scout will be slemnish, formerly of SVIFT NA. He will also be joined by former Velocity eSports roamer marmaloo, who has risen to the top of North American TF2 incredibly fast, with his first season of ESEA invite coming after three seasons, where he briefly played with Circa eSports in Season 23, which prior to their acquisition were known as Meat Market.
After a brief absence, corsa and Ascent are reformed and ready to take on all that stand in their way. (picture by Ness "uberchain" Delacroix and Jasmine "Jasbutts" Ho)
Following these roster changes, Ascent will be comprised of:
- Scout: corsa
- Scout: slemnish
- Roamer: marmaloo
- Pocket: Paddie
- Demoman: Bdonski
- Medic: Nursey
