SVIFT ventures into the rice fields for AsiaFortress Cup 15

March 21, 2019

Following the thrilling conclusion to AFLAN, a new Asian powerhouse has emerged to firmly challenge the reign of Xiao. Featuring some of the most mechanically proficient players in Asia, SVIFT AS rises from the ashes to contest the Asia Fortress title once again.

SVIFT AS is led by team captain Teejay, making his long-awaited return to Asian TF2 on Scout after playing in teams like SVIFT AU and Jasmine Tea in ozfortress' Premier division. Having played at the zenith of Asian TF2 since he was 13 years old, Teejay has made himself out as one of the most prolific players in TF2's Asian scene.

Joining him on scout will be veteran Fwishy, formerly a part of the Xiao empire that won AFC 3 times in a row nigh uncontested. Known for his excellent performance on the flank despite straying far from his Medic, Fwishy eyes a title for himself on a new team.

On pocket is another Xiao refugee — the king himself, hsr. As a highly talented player, hsr has won multiple seasons of AsiaFortress as multiple classes, most recently having played Demoman for Xiao. For SVIFT AS, hsr returns to the Pocket role, where his deathmatching and playmaking ability are sure to shine through.

Star Scout and AFLAN champion banana transitions back to Roamer for SVIFT AS, completing the team's Soldier combo. As the frag clips and highlight reels will attest to, banana jumping skills and consistently proficient offclassing on Sniper make him a versatile force that makes him unique amongst players in AsiaFortress.

MGE Lord Ry4n fills in on Demoman, having historically been the centrepiece of beloved team A Motley Crew. Despite AMC’s lack of success in recent history, his tenured experience on the class makes him a perfect candidate to nudge the team's potential further.

Rounding out the team is AND from Hong Kong on Medic. SVIFT AS choosing AND is admittedly strange, as the last time AND played competitive TF2 was nearly four years ago after winning the AsiaFortress Mercenary Cup 7 with Teejay. The saying goes that "History tends to repeat itself," so one can only hope AND wins AFC again without too much abuse from Teejay.

Team captain Teejay briefly shared his thoughts on the team with us.

My scout damn doo doo now la wei but we're very excited to represent SVIFT and hopefully we'll be able to put an end to AiShou's reign of terror.. maybe..

Ready to start a new Far East movement to reach the apex of Asian TF2, SVIFT AS are:

  • Scout: Teejay
  • Scout: Fwishy
  • Roamer: banana
  • Pocket: hsr
  • Demoman: Ry4n
  • Medic: AND

for people not invested in asia fortress this roster is ridiculously stacked.

If you were (and people will inevitably) compare them to Xiao they are potentially a much more solid roster. In terms of scout combo, roamer and medic I'd argue straight upgrades. Teejay and Fwishy are about as scary a combo of scouts can be; Teejay is plain and simple the best aimer I've seen in TF2 period. AND is individually one of the smartest and most mechanically skilled people I've ever played with. banana is unfair, he's like an anime character I don't get how but his power just scales to always be on another level of the people surrounding him, Asia hasn't got a reputation for fantastic roamers but banana has broken that curse.

In terms of demo and pocket you couldn't find better replacements for cuteman and cloverella then with Ry4n and hsr, hsr is the only person who could contend with cloverella for his strengths in maincalling and aggressive strategy, and whereas cuteman had some of the best aim and dm in the region Ry4n is a super selfless player who's mindset lies solely in what his play can do to make his team's job easier.

Having played both with and against him, I can confirm that Hirasagi Hayate aka fRVena aka koku白 aka HSR aka kibbles has shown great potential to become a top tier player. He possesses a vast knowledge of in-game mechanics on the Soldier class, being able to abuse map terrain to his advantage to win crucial 1v1s. Often turning the tides with key picks on the enemy Medic, Hirasagi Hayate’s influence on any given game has always been noticed, if not, appreciated and hated, by his team and the enemy team respectively. Medics have been warned; whenever they see a shadow in the sky, it is more often than not Hirasagi Hayate aka fRVena aka koku白 aka HSR aka kibbles, crashing down with the fury of a thousand Gods to take their lives, before escaping into the wind without so much as a thought on the travesty he has committed on the enemy team. His decision making and map awareness rival, if not, surpass the most veteran of players. Constantly coming up with clever hiding spots to surprise his unwary opponents, Hirasagi Hayate aka fRVena aka koku白 aka HSR aka kibbles has always managed to outplay his opponents even though he may be at a vast number disadvantage. It is often too late to scream for mercy before the enemy gets obliterated by his rockets raining down on the hapless players. I have no doubt that Hirasagi Hayate aka fRVena aka koku白will lead your team to a first place finish whether it may be via his back or as a supporting member of your team.

Isn't clovis the roamer for xiao and 26 the pocket who does the amazing, strong maincalling etc. and hits 26 airshots per game (scrims/matches)? :thinking:

Also, AMC died season 11. We didn't play Season 12 because of real life obligations to country and families.

Season 13 and 14 me and RY4N played with Koreans and Japanese players due to most of the original first and 2nd version of AMC crew members was still busy with real life obligations.

Sadly it didn't work out due to language barrier and we picked up new players straight to div 1 which was a slight mistake but nevertheless was a fun experience to talk about kimchis and ramen while dying 20 times per game.

I don't know about AMC's lack of success of recent history as we didn't play for almost 3 seasons now not including the most recent AFLAN! Lol.

And also AMC is a Singaporean team made by RY4N and Tharnos back in November 2013. Only Malaysians was me and Sakisa (God bless his soul)
