With the recent reveal of Ascent's new roster, and pocket soldier turned roamer showstopper notably absent from it, the Massachusetts native has found a new home under a new banner with Velocity eSports.

Announced earlier this month on his twitter, showstopper had officially parted ways with Ascent and would be filling in the roaming soldier spot left by his successor on Ascent, Marmaloo. With this addition, the team aims to compete at the Rewind II LAN and the upcoming season of ESEA invite against challengers from near and far.
We were also able to get a few words from Jarrett about their recent pickup and plans going forward, saying:
We picked up show because we liked the experience/comms he brought to the team, and he was willing to commit to us. We're hoping the addition can help solidify our place as a playoff team, so we can have the opportunity to place better than we have in previous seasons.
Ready to take on the competition, Velocity eSports will be composed of:
- Scout: shamoo
- Scout: Pete
- Roamer: showstopper
- Pocket: Kryptonite
- Demoman: Jarrett
- Medic: bear
