Well-established titans Ascent have finally completed their roster in time for the start of the upcoming ESEA season.
Invite veteran TheFragile, who captained the team and played Medic, announced that he would be taking an indefinite break from playing after Insomnia55. In his place will be phorofor, who most recently played for Attack of the Yomies. This will be his third season in Invite, and fourth full season in ESEA overall, making him a relative newcomer to the scene.
In addition, one of the team's starting Scout positions has been clouded in doubt. The team fielded famed former Classic Mixup player enigma on Scout during their run at Insomnia55 as a replacement for starting scout Decimate. With enigma only being a standin and Decimate choosing to continue his absence due to school obligations, the team has brought in yomps to stand in. yomps is well-noted for his sudden appearance on the scene, with this being only his third season in ESEA overall. In his first season of Invite last season as part of cafe monster, yomps put up 0.8 frags per minute, earning him fourth place overall behind long-time veterans b4nny, clockwork, and cyzer.
Thus, Ascent's roster is now:
- yomps (scout - standin)
- Shrugger (scout)
- Ma3la (soldier)
- rando (soldier)
- Bdonski (demoman)
- phorofor (medic)
Ma3la, team captain, had the following to say:
Even though we're replacing two players in TheFragile and Decimate (temporarily) with two up-and-coming players, I think the talent of phorofor and yomps will make up for their relative inexperience, and so far they are filling their roles well.
