Fresh off their Div-1 championship, Whole Lotta Kronge Realm are suiting up in their classic roles in preparation for an Invite debut in RGL Season 5.
If you've been paying attention to the scene just outside of Invite, many of these names should be familiar to competitors and spectators alike. Various iterations of this core group of players have been hanging out at the top of Advanced and Div-1 over the last four seasons. Perhaps most well-known of them all is bwelp, who is the only player with at least a season's worth of Invite experience under his belt, having played Scout for King's Crew during the twilight ESEA seasons. nomi played Demoman during the team's offclass campaign and found it to his liking, and he will be continuing in that role for this edition of the team. The Soldier duo is comprised of Alley and Skele_Knight, both of whom have participated on various Kronge Realm rosters in the RGL era.
Rounding out the roster are animus and Plaidinum, who each have a pair of gold medals to their name. Both these players joined Kronge Realm late last season en route to their Div-1 title, but have experienced a first place finish prior. Flank Scout animus took home the Advanced crown in Season 2 as part of SpireIQ Technologies, while Medic Plaidinum followed up with Mofu March during Season 3 Div-1. In a division full of fresh faces and rosters, the history, cohesion, and winning pedigree of this squad will be a huge boon on their side as their Invite debut draws near.
With regards to his Invite debut and expectations, nomi had this to say:
We have a really chill group of guys playing so I'm looking forward to this season. For most of the roster it's their first season of playing Invite so they're eager to prove themselves. There's a lot of really good Invite teams this season so we're excited to see how we place against them. I hope Alley doesn't choke when he gets nervous.
We also asked bwelp to give a statement for all his fans:
Shoutouts to the sidewalks for keeping me off the streets.
