As the sun rose over the shores of North America, a new dawn began for the SVIFT empire. After a season-long hiatus from the region, the European organization has established another New World settlement through the latest iteration of SVIFT NA.
Currently lying low under the moniker Fin, this new lineup owes its origins to the ashes of the old Ascent roster, which became increasingly unstable ever since their third-place finish in Season 26 of ESEA. This eventually culminated in its demise during the off-season, forcing Nursey and aim to flee to froyotech and Ma3laa to sponsor a wholly new team. Nevertheless, this left a gap in Invite that needed to be filled for the division’s survival, leading botmode to hurriedly assemble an all-new, all-different squad for the season.

From FROYO BLACK, botmode coaxed their backups highfive and zilly to return to SVIFT NA, and gleaned two other former teammates, slemnish and laz, from last season’s Intermediate runner-ups Faint Gaming. Finally, rounding out the team is delpo, who last seen ringing as Pocket Soldier for myanimelist last season, and a member of the very original SVIFT NA lineup.
Team Medic zilly provided us with a brief statement on the team's prospects for the upcoming season.
Our team’s so nasty this season, that not even that fatty shade is gonna want to taste us. Let’s examine the competition. corsa thinks he’s good, but he’s lost to yight on demo 4 times. sandbot is gonna malfunction halfway through the season. paddie’s gonna need a growth spurt and a stool if he wants to touch our knees. luc can be my daddy but he ain’t my mom or my teacher. banny’s gonna sweat so hard he’s gonna look like a large pizza with extra pepperoni by the time we’re done with him. habib is sick though... halal in the streets, haram in the sheets.
Let's look at our team. delpo. He just finished a year of training in the mountains, and he’s got some new tech. Hair flowing, man’s glowing while he plays the game. He just levitates and uses his mind to slay. Man is hot. laz is sick and he’s reliable as fuck as long as he isn’t a last minute booty call. He’s perfected mge to the point where his girlfriend has started calling him “The Spire.” botmode is a lost cause and all you froyo fangays that hype him up are low IQ brainlets. My scout combo have smoked their brains away and I’m not sure if anyone understands either of them anymore. slemnish only responds to BUFFMCSTRONGHUGE now. highfive? Absolute mad man. He just sings and talks about eating delpo’s ass. Not sure what nurbey did to him but it was fucking mental. All in all, new people new experience. 3rd place benny. brb i gotta go poo poo ◦
