dead babies mad gunz have earned themselves a spot in Season 23 Invite thanks to their Season 22 Intermediate championship. During the off-season, the team has decided to play in Invite with a different medic, cutting out veteran player MR SLIN for rookie player cookiejake.
MR SLIN is a well known member of the TF2 community. The banana lover decided to make a comeback in ESEA since his last appearance in Season 17, and he decided to join saam’s new team, mad gunz, for Season 22 Intermediate. The team plowed through the entire season, going 15-1 in the regular season and dropping only two rounds during their playoff run towards the championship.
For cookiejake, mad gunz will mark the medic’s first season of Invite. Back before Season 22 began, the rookie medic looked to make his entrance into Invite with dog1 in Season 21 Intermediate, but a loss to eL cLaSsIcO in the grand finals saw that chance slip from their hands. Later on he joined dog2, a team that was voted to play in Season 22 Invite, but they disbanded even before the season began. With Invite guaranteed, cookiejake is ready to make his Invite debut.
Team captain saam spoke to us about the roster change:
I'm excited to be playing with cookie again after playing with him 2 seasons ago on dog1. He and rikachu having amazing chemistry together, and along with moving marmaduke to pocket I think it gives our team a lot more direction and puts us in a really solid spot going into this season.
dead babies mad gunz Invite ready roster is now:
- Scout: saam
- Scout: phlps
