Faint Gaming swaps Deathy for broKING

October 5, 2018

Just over a month after announcing their Season 29 roster, Faint Gaming have cut nearly all their six original members, leaving team captain sandblast the lone survivor.

The latest on the chopping block is Pocket Soldier Deathy, whom the team ultimately decided was underperforming after his six-season Invite hiatus. He is most known for his time with the Running with Scizors squad, last coaching the Season 27 iteration of the team and finishing in 6th with them back in Season 22 of ESEA Invite.

We managed to catch up with Deathy, who enlightened us on his plans for the future.

I'm going to be casting here and there for the remainder of the season as well as being a backup for Velocity. As far as next season goes, I have some plans, but I can't really say what they are. 8<

Meanwhile, sandblast sought a replacement Pocket, eventually deciding to bring broKING back into the Faint Gaming circle. Beyond placing second with the organization's IM team last season, broKING is most known for captaining the Meat Market team, who last placed sixth in Invite Season 25 as well as 5-6th at the Rewind Invitational 2017.

We reached out to broKING to give us his thoughts on his new team.

Everyone knows sandblast, circa, bear and myself are all good bros, so this move was pretty obvious. Along with my natural synergy with campy, I'm expecting good things in the future.

sandblast also provided us with some insights into the sudden roster swap.

The team thought Deathy was underpreforming and we spoke to him about playing poorly, so he left, I guess. So we needed a player, and broKING was wanting to play. I'm next btw.

Faint Gaming soldiers on with a new roster comprising of:

  • Scout: sandblast
  • Scout: phlps
  • Roamer: yight
  • Pocket: broKING
  • Demoman: xaler
  • Medic: bear

sandblastThe team thought Deathy was underpreforming and we spoke to him about playing poorly, so he left, I guess.

To clarify: I did not leave the team. I was told that I was being cut for my performance, but I was not given a chance to fix anything or improve, which I was willing to do. I don't want to create drama but this is false.
