Midseason is prime time for lineup changes. Teams have now had a month plus to feel out their roster in scrims and matches. As week 5 gets underway, Hooligans For Hire have made a couple of changes for the remainder of their season. First, medic Phantom would be dropped from the team due to performance issues. In response, the team would move fabulous from scout over to medic. His experience and leadership will no doubt continue to help the team from the game's most important class. This would leave Hooligans For Hire with a vacant scout spot, one that would quickly be filled by a familiar face.
Scout vari was with this team just last season when they finished 5th in Open. He will be reunited with many of his teammates from their Season 26 campaign, including scout partner Link. Link previously played flank scout but will be making the shift to the combo side of the team along with fabulous. This leaves vari to run the flanks with Reflecto. With these changes, the team hopes to continue working hard and improving during their debut season of Invite.
Reflecto had this to say regarding his team's midseason shuffle:
Basically it sucks to have to change the roster around midseason. but phantom was having a lot of difficulty adapting to the higher level of play required of him in Invite. I am so excited for the future of our team and am thrilled to have vari back. vari and I have such strong coordination and I look forward to building on that with vari in Invite. I think our team is much stronger now and hopefully we will improve a lot.
The newest iteration of Hooligans For Hire is:
- Scout: Link
- Scout: vari
- Roamer: Reflecto
- Pocket: faust
- Demoman: Shylo
- Medic: fabulous
