Russian Premiership team B@GSER FIVE have undergone a roster change, promoting their sub Timus into the starting lineup to replace uubers on roamer and picking up sano to replace shappie on demoman. The team also made role changes, with dima and Unlimited moving to Scout and Pocket respectively.
Timus and sano will be newcomers to the Premiership, and will be competing in their first season in the highest league in Europe. sano played for B@SGER FIVE as a ringer in their Week 1 match against Perilous Gaming, but the team ultimately lost 0-2. Now he’ll be a starter for the team as they hope the roster change can turn around their losing streak and make a run for the playoffs.
dima gave us some insight on the roster change:
To start with we got a Nesh, whom firstly decide to stop playing for OW and because of it we start trialing another scout. Since russian scene is soooo poo-poo right now we decide try to find new member somewhere in europe. We've tryed to play with hp and sheepy but it wont work out: they cant get aa gameplay line with russian comms and few our players dont really like to play with english comms because of language barrier.
Then I ask Nesh really hard to finish season with us cause we cant play w/o full russian speaking roster and he's back
And then Premtech wont hit playoff in highlander..and he left tf2 forever.
Thats why we choose our scout from first version of roster: Spicy
He wasnt great scout to be honest, he can be good friend, good target to get conversation with, but not scout.
Thats the reason why I cut him.
But its kinda far "future".
After we lost Nesh and add Spicy we havent won a single game, we are losing to everyone And in this point of time i decide that i'll hunt Spicy down.
We got experience of eu players already, and they dont fit to our roster so as a result we decide to find a player who can understand russian language: I've ask nykkye, NightHawk, forsaken, shadowburn, kensi, sid and even msh and so on and so on, but none of them want to play this season, so ya :(
In addition to Spicy-problem, Timus said that he have no time to play anymore and he gonna leave for rl.
Find two players whom compete near of the top-high level and understand russian speach is kinda impossible, but i've done it
Uubers was the viewer of my twitch channel for long time and i uderstand that he can understand russian language, otherwise he's just crazy guy whom watching my stream for gameplay xD Well, we've found replacement for roamer
but still need scout. Mr.Epic told me that shappie want try to play with us and he can understand russian speach (spoilers: no)
Perfect option. And it was..for first few games
Then he's realise that WE A RE SO BAAD, and start playing like a role player.
He role playing pug guys, who dont giving a calls and just insulting others when team have failing something.
This boy cant take critisism at all
In addition i've got some missuderstandings with our another part of a combo but we've speak about our trouble-moment and solve them like a mans and became even more smily-faces-guys to each other than we were before.
And we've played with this roster for a few times (first two weeks) but then i saw that Timus made a rec post again, and since Uubers comms was like a Jellyfish speach, i told him that now he's a backap and gonna play on thursdays. But he want to play more and he decide that he gonna play with his friends in mid (role player ; target - wonszu)
So, Timus again in a roster
But now we got a Shappie who not happy to play at all
And i cut him
If he just want just to finish this season w/o any addition to a game process and just playing because we have no one else, i've cut him. He can finish this season with same succes on pugs. Or in trash can.
We got in minds as "xD" idea. And now its real, Unlimited , who playing solly on low-ru mixes and me who got fat five games on pugs as a scout on pugs, switching exactly for soldier and scout. Also we getting sano from another RU team, since i dont care about theyre destiny. The bad anyway And its our current roster. Sadly for last two weeks we'll need s scout as well. I'll went for summer practice from my university and cant play because of it
heh, at least we dont gonna fold :)
With the shuffle, B@GSER FIVE’S roster is now:
- Scout: Mr. Epic
- Scout: dima
- Roamer: Timus
- Pocket: Unlimited
- Demoman: sano
- Medic: madmak
