With King's Crew's acquisition of Ford Gaming, the organization's former lineup has continued a life of luxury as MAD LUXURIOUS following a 1-9 finish during the inaugural RGL season..
The team maintains four starting players; ed, okiewaka, pauldogg, and lucrative continue on their previous roles of Scout, Roamer, Pocket, and Medic, respectively. Parting ways with the squad are kuestif and pablo, the former unable to commit the time to play and the latter intent on joining a different team. This season marked kuestif's fifth alongside the team and their second in Invite, while also being pablo's debut, both with the team and in Invite.
With the revival of the MAD LUXURIOUS name comes the return of pelt, who played with the team during ESEA Season 18 where the team placed 5-8th in Intermediate. Moreover, it marks their return to Invite as well, having been seen roaming for Cat Noises during ESEA Season 26. Likewise rejoining the team is exile, who is making their first foray on Scout to take the place of pablo, after having previously played Demoman in the final two seasons of ESEA.
Team captain lucrative spoke optimistically about the return of their former teammates:
Picking up exile and pelt perfectly fills our void for more calling, and I think we are gonna definitely jump up a level with those guys once we get on the same page and the overall synergy gets going.
Likewise, exile expressed their excitement at being reunited with their former teammates.
Glad to be back with the crew after a bit of time away from them. They welcomed me back with open arms and I'm super happy that I have this opportunity to play with some of my favorite people again and to be able to play Scout! I feel this season will be super competitive and I'm glad I get to be apart of it and that I get to play scout in it. I have a lot more time to spend playing the game and playing random pick ups and TF2 in general. This is the season.
MAD LUXURIOUS' latest lineup is:
- Scout: exile
- Scout: ed
- Roamer: okiewaka
- Pocket: pauldogg
- Demoman: pelt
- Medic: lucrative
