Following a two-season absence from the North American scene, Ascent has returned with a new roster to add to their accolades.

This new Ascent includes mostly returning members who also have history together from SVIFT NA. laz just barely missed playoffs last season on Highfive Demoman, which is evidently no longer since highfive is reverting back to Scout. These two are reuniting with slemnish and botmode, the former on Scout for his first full season since the death of ESEA and the latter on Roamer, a role he last played with Jamal E-Sports in ESEA Season 24.
Having played under Ascent for ESEA Season 28, xaler is the last to be a returning, after taking silver with :) in RGL Season 1. Finally, lolguy rounds out the squad on Medic following two seasons with Dunk Masters.
When asked for comment, botmode was very curt.
Although we pressed for elaboration, lolguy was insistent.
Finally, we turned to Ma3laa, who replied:
who? I don’t even know what team that is haha
The first Ascent team in the RGL era will be:
- Scout: highfive
- Scout: slemnish
- Roamer: botmode
- Pocket: laz
- Demoman: xaler
- Medic: lolguy
