Following the departure of Pete and bear from Velocity eSports, the organization has announced its new lineup for the upcoming season of ESEA Invite. With the new announcement, along with the two aforementioned players, veteran Invite player showstopper has also departed the organization. In their place, Velocity eSports have brought on bo4r, Rekuso, and Skye as Scout, Roamer, and Medic respectively for Season 28 of ESEA.
bo4r had previously stepped down in the past from playing in an active Invite roster, backing up for froyotech in Season 27 and primarily remaining inactive, standing in for only one match in the regular season against Running with Scizors.

Rekuso and Skye previously played together last season with Running with Scizors, a team that had previously played in Invite, occasionally dipping into the top of Intermediate. Along with Rekuso and Skye, Jarrett had previously played as the Demoman for Running with Scizors. Season 28 will mark the first time in six seasons that the trio have all played together on an Invite team with the last time being with ChampGG.8K in Season 22.
With the announcement, Velocity eSports’ newly sharpened roster for ESEA Season 28 is currently:
- Scout: shamoo
- Scout: bo4r
- Roamer: Rekuso
- Pocket: Kryptonite
- Demoman: Jarrett
- Medic: Skye
