After their first week in ESEA, Hell's Kitchen have decided to swap out scouts, replacing Kev777 with Pete.
Kev777, previously known as a mainstay on MyAnimeList, helped his team secure their spot in Invite this season as part of their core that placed second in Intermediate. Citing lack of time available to commit to playing, he decided to step down from the team.
This is what Pete had to say about joining:
I kinda stumbled into the spot to be honest. Kev had decided that he didn't have the time to commit to the rest of the season, and I'm pretty close friends with Trip and Chunkey and heard they needed a scout. I think since I've joined we've only been met with disappointment in our results, but we still have the ability to power through and pull out some surprising wins.
Pete will be returning from a two season break from Invite, where he was last seen making playoff runs with Velocity Esports during seasons 26 and 27, as well as at Rewind II LAN. His previous Invite experience also includes playing with Circa Esports in season 23 and playing with Meat Market in the ESA Rewind Invitational.
Team leader trippa had this to say about the change:
We like playing with Pete a lot because he’s a vocal player who focuses on making the team work. We have already had a few disappointing losses, but our goal for the rest of the season is to win as many matches as possible. We still believe that we can definitely beat every team in Invite besides FROYO.
Hoping to sizzle their competition with this roster change, Hell's Kitchen consists of chefs:
- Scout: sandblast
- Scout: Pete
- Roamer: tojo
- Pocket: trippa
- Demoman: chunkey
- Medic: Daffodil
