Meat Market’s newest choice cuts: cinnamon and Alex

After a regular season of success and productivity with Meat Market, Invite newcomers cin and Alex.exe have been sliced from the roster in favor of the previously inactive sigh and ninjanick.

Leading an 8-4 debut campaign as part of the team’s combo, cin and Alex.exe aided the team in carving out a stable 4th place position and probable playoff berth. With playoffs looming, however, the team ultimately decided to usher in a more veteran roster shuffle.

In place of cin at pocket, Meat Market opted to cleave ash from his former medic role and let him marinate in heals as the soldier class. Providing those heals will be none other than ninjanick, making his first return to Invite since his Season 22 stint with froyotech.

Regarding the sudden butchering of his tenure with the team, cin reflected grateful sentiment to his former teammates:

Having the opportunity to play on a team like this without nearly as much experience as many of my peers is a large part of why i got cut. But it also allowed me to improve as a player, probably more than I have in any other season, and for that reason I am thankful to broKING and corsa for giving me that opportunity. I am not bitter toward Meat Market or any of my ex-teammates. I hope they are able to find some success in playoffs.

For the team’s demoman, sigh will be taking over Alex’s newly vacated position. The former, having not played in Invite since the conclusion of Season 29, was the demoman for the Street Hoops-based Ascent lineup before participating in Velocity eSports’ short playoff run. Sigh was also conveniently teammates with ash during his tenure with Ascent.

As for Alex, the former demoman ensures that he has no beef with his former Meat Market squad:

Well, I wasn’t really surprised to see [that I got cut]. I know sigh is a very good demoman, and although I’m disappointed, I think the team will most likely be better. Sigh’s a much more experienced demo than me, and I still have a lot to learn before I can be top four.

Taking a number for Season 30’s playoff race, the Meat Market deli is currently employing:

  • Scout: corsa
  • Scout: cukei
  • Roamer: broKING
  • Pocket: ash
  • Demoman: sigh
  • Medic: ninjanick

I know it's a bit cold, but sometimes you need to make some tough decisions if you want to still lose 5-1 to froyo

alex and cin have great mechanics and have huge potential as players. cutting them seems impatient and pointless considering froyo will just win anyway

5-0'ng the 3rd seed team (the same team who 5-1 them earlier in the season) sure is VERY pointless

cool but they didnt grow as a team, they just cut their players with potential for people who already knew what to do. it's not the same team winning
