Almost a month into Season 23 of ESEA Invite, Nursey decided to take a break from the game altogether, leaving -bird noises- in need of a new medic for their roster. In her place to join the flock comes cookiejake, the Invite rookie who previously played for this game used to be fun. This will be -bird noises-'s second roster change this season, following the departure of Vand and the addition of arekk after the first week of the season.
Nursey tweeted the following after making her decision to go on an indefinite hiatus:
I am sorry for anyone who was looking forward my current TF2 season. Good chance I will return soon, but I'm taking a much needed hiatus.
We also caught up with the newly bestowed team captain of -bird noises-, corsa, who commented on the roster change.
Nursey is currently taking a short break from all competitive TF2. She has no issues with her teams in particular; she has been playing highlander and 6s seriously for four consecutive years and just needs a break. At this time, she probably will still play TF2 for fun whenever she wants to. She mainly, however, wants to spend time doing things in real life. Given the situation, we have decided to pick up cookiejake. Not only is he a medic with a lot of potential, but we also like the attitude he brings to the team as a person and a player.
We look forward to playing with this roster, and we hope to make a strong appearance in playoffs.
The revised roster for -bird noises- is:
- Scout: corsa
- Scout: arekk
- Roamer: Rolling
- Pocket: botmode
- Demoman: sighguy
- Medic: cookiejake
