Comfortably Spanked are returning to the Premiership after qualifying for Season 25 through the Pre-Season Playoffs. After seeing some old fruit fall off the tree, the peaches have found some new fruit, and they’ll also be joined by a new organization, just in time for their peak season.
The team placed 5th-6th at Insomnia58 last August, and during the off-season, four of Spanked’s players departed from the team, including Dennia, Hank, vani, and skeej. To fill in for the missing slots, the team has collected a wide variety of fruits for their basket. Their new players include Funs from Team XENEX, Maros from Team Infamous, DamnEasy from happy farmers, and Turbo from Stevie Wonder’s Aim School. For Funs, Maros, and Turbo, they'll be competing in their first season in the Premiership.
Not only will Comfortably Spanked have a new lineup, but they’re also getting a new sponsor. TF2 organization ChampGG has confirmed to teamfortress.tv that they have picked up the team for Season 25. The org, owned and operated by tsc and erynn, is known for their PUG services such as PugChamp and MixChamp. They previously sponsored the Running with Scizors lineup, ChampGG.8K, for ESEA Invite, but the team disbanded after Season 22 concluded. The new sponsorship marks ChampGG’s return to the scene and also the first time the org has picked up a European roster.
adysky talked to us about the roster changes and the new spnosorship:
We've been looking for a partnership for quite a long time now and we are happy to announce our deal with PugChamp. Spanked had plans after i58 to remain the same with the only exception being Dennia leaving for Overwatch, but all of sudden we were forced to make quite a heavy roster shuffle and it wasn't an easy with something little over one week of time before registrations close. Maros was an obvious pickup; he used to merc few times for us before and we wanted to take him as a replacement for Dennia originally anyway. Funs has proven himself at LAN to be capable of top level and his attitude overall is great influence in our mumble. To compensate for our scout's lack of experience we have picked up DamnEasy with his great DM skills and gamesense; him and T0m are just wonderful soldiers to play with really. Turbo was an easy choice after his first trial; his coordination and chemistry with T0m from previous teams just makes our combo very solid. We are really looking forward to this season, hopefully aiming for that sweet playoff spot.
ChampGG.K's! ripened roster is now:
- Scout: Funs
- Scout: Maros
- Roamer: DamnEasy
- Pocket: T0m
- Demoman: adysky
- Medic: Turbo
