Team Immunity Roster Change: Termo replaces Bulk

June 25, 2014

News from the other side of the world today, there's apparently been a roster change for Team Immunity that will have major implications for i52. iM demoman Bulk has been replaced by Termo in a move that has somewhat surprised the local community. iM have stated before that they would never play with Termo ever due to personality clashes, but in a small player pool they could still dominate without picking up the best demoman in Australia.

However it looks like Bulk has been given the KFC treatment now that a major international LAN is on the line, and Yuki and Termo have figured out a way to get past their differences for the time being. No one would argue that the team is weaker as a result; there are no Australian demomen anywhere near Termo . While he is not LAN proven, many do expect him to be an international caliber demo.

Termo has been substituting in on roamer while aporia has been on vacation, so the sub roamer spot is somewhat open while rumors report that former cc demoman Yewl filled in for them for scrims the other night. However, they seem to still be on the hunt, with Budda playing roamer for them as well.

In the Australian Prem Round Table discussion last night, iM Snowblind didn't have too much to say and was generally pretty diplomatic about the whole situation, but when asked if he thought the heal centric styles of Yuki and Termo might clash, he did have this to say:

"No not really, it's kind of the opposite, one thing that Yuki has said he's always wanted more from his demoman, is just leading more in some situations. One thing that I guess Bulk struggled a little bit was leading ubers and leading pushes in some situations, where as Termo on the other hand is really confident is really comfortable doing that. So I think as long as we iron out the situations where we want Yuki leading or Termo leading then it could be really strong for us. We're really confident in that, we just need to get as much practice as we can together as a team obviously and hopefully get a good bootcamp as well." - iM Snowblind

Whatever the case, if iM show up to LAN with Termo on their roster they will have something that they lacked last time: a really scary demoman. Combine that with their previous roster swap - Snowblind in for Antwa who quit when he moved to Canada - iM are looking to be a team that simply doesn't have any weak spots and are the best that Australia has to offer.

Correction: Bulk and Snowblind have both noted that the parting was a bit nicer than the article originally stated. That section has been removed.

"Apparently the cut wasn’t as clean as most would have hoped, with other iM members simply telling Bulk that they didn’t have scrims one night, and then playing with Termo on demo instead."

i'm not sure where you're getting this information but it's completely false :S

Also antwa is still in NZ. He was merely planning a move. RE: roster change and other info, you should probably attempt to collect fact rather than create fiction for the sake of views.

Hope you know what you're doing yuki, no doubting termos ability but no doubting his level of autism either. Maybe things've changed, idk but all the best nonetheless

i would say that yuki and the rest of my team who have been playing with termo for months would be a better judge of character and attitude than someone who has probably never had a conversation with him

late edit: while termo has been a bit 'notorious' (for lack of a better description) in the past, we wouldn't have made this decision to take him to i52 if we weren't 110% confident in him

I have both played and talked to him before.
I always want to bring foreign players into a small scene, esp prem level players, but when he started insulting people for not being good, it made a really bad first impression for people playing with a real 'pro' they had seen on streams or frag clips for the first time.

Regardless of how good you are, it's really unbecoming of a professional figure to be a snob. Sure im not in any position to judge since I last heard from him months ago, but first impressions count for a lot.
