The Bus Crew has announced that PolygoN has parted ways with the team. The English Pocket Soldier, previously of Ascent.EU and SVIFT, joined The Bus Crew a month back after being trialled with the team for ETF2L Season 30.
To fill the Pocket role for the remainder of the season, the team has enlisted the help of Josh. The Irishman was last seen playing with Ascent.EU last season and achieved a second place finish with the team, but is most well known for his long career with LEGO starting in Season 20.
- @PolygoN____ has decided to step down after tomorrows official. Wish you the best of luck in the future. This leaves us with a void hard to fill at this point in the season. Luckily Josh will join to play the last officials with us. After that, LAN is where our focus will be.— Rasmus Zaine (@albaTF2) June 20, 2018
With Josh, LEGO placed second in one season and third in two seasons, with Josh even picking up a “Pocket of the Season” award with the Danish team. Josh also attended Dreamhack Winter 2015 with LEGO, which went down as the team’s only LAN for nearly three years until they attended Copenhagen Games in 2018.
Josh is well-known for his usage of banners and his heal-heavy playstyle, which can bring strong DM to the table as well as a wealth of top level experience. He’ll also be reunited with his soldier partner dmoule, who was a former teammate of the Irishman on LEGO, which will hopefully help Josh fit in with the team's playstyle and prevent him from joshing around.
Team leader Yohn has shared his insight on the roster situation:
We have decided to stop scrimming all together this season. Dmoule can’t commit his time to scrims and our new pocket Josh, aka The Major, can only play tf2 in very small doses due to his arm injury. PolygoN has stepped down because he has struggled to enjoy tf2 like he used to. Despite these hurdles, Bus Crew still intend to go to i63, but with the original six, which means the return of beloved tobs and poison.
This is not the first roster change for The Bus Crew, as they already swapped botmode and tobs for Deox and dmoule last week. The public transportation warriors are currently tied for 6th place with Ascent.EU, with plans to attend Insomnia 63.
Ready to go in fast and not pay any tolls, The Crew riding the Bus is now made of:
- Scout: Deox
- Scout: alba
- Roamer: dmoule
- Pocket: Josh
- Demoman: Yohn
- Medic: Marten
