Hands Off disbands

Invite team Hands Off has disbanded. The team, which made its Invite debut last season as Meat Market, was looking to climb the ranks after a fairly mediocre season. To that end, the team picked up highfive and dingo to replace the departed Sezco and Saelot on scout and medic, respectively.

The team began the season with a close loss to Titanium hWhite, but made up for it with a victory over -bird noises-. However, they would come into a tough stretch of their schedule, dropping three games in succession to the current top three seeds. Facing rapidly diminishing chances at playoffs, the team opted to swap bl4nk onto medic and dingo onto soldier after week 3. This did not work out for them, however, as they dropped both of their matches (against The Bugs and Running with Scizors) 5-2, leaving them tied for last place at the end of week 4. After evaluating their situation, the team ultimately decided to disband.

bl4nk's switch to medic was unable to solve Hands Off's problems (picture by Austen "tagg" Wade) bl4nk's switch to medic was unable to solve Hands Off's problems (picture by Austen "tagg" Wade)

Team captain slamBerg shared with us the reasons for disbanding as well as the future plans of the team:

We can't make a roster of 6 people that works well together while also having people playing classes they want to play. We may rebuild and come back next season. We might go our separate ways. It is uncertain at this time. Everyone has different motivations for why they want to play the game right now, and that also complicates things.

The roster for Hands Off was:

  • Scout: CheesyMacgyver
  • Scout: highfive
  • Roamer: slamBerg
  • Pocket: dingo
  • Demoman: pelt
  • Medic: bl4nk

It was going to happen sooner or later. Things just never really clicked and people weren't having fun. I figured to call it now before we all get burnt-out and hate each other. We may play some matches on off classes for fun and likely play next season with some changes.
