After a season in dormancy, Ford Gaming are back with new parts and a new name. Now sponsored by Morning Light, they are looking to make noise in Season 4 Invite after the division underwent an extremely tumultuous offseason.
We're happy to announce our new roster for @RGLgg Invite this season!— Morning Light (@MorningLightGG) September 13, 2020
Excited for our 2nd season in TF2 and our Invite debut!#ShineTogether pic.twitter.com/OJgrjwBFP0
At the front of the lineup is the duo of sandblast and sighguy. The former took the previous season off backing up for Ascent while the latter placed 3rd with MyAnimeList. They will reprise their roles as Scout and Demo respectively from their Season 2 Ford Gaming campaign. Joining them are a pair of Invite veterans: Scout alfa and pocket Soldier dingo. alfa played alongside sighguy with MyAnimeList in their aforementioned 3rd place finish, while dingo had a brief stint as part of Team Avatar before finishing the season as part of the ah shie reform.
Next up is their Medic aZn, who has been out of the spotlight over the last two years, primarily playing Soldier for various iterations of The Goblin Zone in Advanced. Prior to that he spent three seasons in ESEA Invite as Medic for MyAnimeList. Finally, SOAPYMEiSTER rounds out the roster on roaming Soldier. After playing in Advanced over the last two seasons, he will be making his Invite debut alongside a handful of other rookies.
When asked about this new roster, sandblast had this to say:
soapy is kinda godly, and azn is kinda godly. dingo, sigh and alfa are amazing. im kinda shitty idk but maybe we make playoffs
We also reached out to Pops, owner of Morning Light for a statement regarding this new roster:
TF2 has been a passion of mine since 2013 and is what got me into Esports in the first place. To go from being a lil squirt, to getting started with OMNI5 and Faint, and all the way to launching my own org has been a real privilege. I'm excited to be supporting the community that I came from and I'm confident Sandblast and co. will do great things this season. Love y'all.
As the sun rises on a new Invite season, Morning Light are:
- Scout: sandblast
- Scout: alfa
- Roamer: SOAPYMEiSTER
- Pocket: dingo
- Demoman: sighguy
- Medic: aZn
