Ethereum and bitcoin might be soaring high, but GlobalClan Fire have decided to invest in The Doge for Season 7 Invite.
The primary pair of GlobalClan Fire is composed of pauldogg and hayes. They were seen in Invite last season with The Jug Dealers and look to continue improving that cohesion fresh off their 5th place finish. Joining pauldogg is an old friend in Nate Rivers. Little history sidenote: they were first teammates all the way back in ESEA Season 17 Open. In more recent years, they played on past Invite teams such as Season 5's KUOD Damage and Season 2's MAD LUXURIOUS.
Also coming from that MAD LUXURIOUS squad is vaati. He returns to Invite action after a season off, and was previously with the Season 5 iteration of GlobalClan Fire. The long-time Demoman player will be picking up the rocket launcher for the first time in Invite territory. Next up is Plaidinum. A Medic that made his Invite debut during RGL's first season with Glove World, he has spent the last few seasons at home with various Kronge Realm teams. Fun fact: both vaati and Plaidinum are the first two players in GlobalClan's history to make a second appearance under the same team. The final member is pandoo, who quickly needed a new home after his qualifier team's untimely demise.
Captain pauldogg expressed his thoughts on the teambuilding process and upcoming contests:
Well, it was very difficult to get this roster together. I basically formed this team a day before the Invite qualifiers, and still needed help from Sin Karma due to a lack of players. Once we earned a place in qualifiers, we were once again on the lookout for a player. Specifically a Scout, which apparently doesn’t exist this season. We got a Scout at one point, and then lost him pretty much two days later. Once again we were back on the brink of death due to not being to get six players. Options became more and more slim, until the best option for our team was for me to move to Scout. So I am now playing a class I haven’t played since IM of ESEA. vaati is now playing a class he practically hasn’t played seriously ever, in Invite. But he is a homie and I’m confident he will be good at whatever he plays. Once we work off some rust and get our bearings, we will be in good shape. Overall I think the 4th-7th seed teams are all pretty good competition. Obviously seeds one and two are set lol. I was very excited to be able to play this season especially after the upset win in grand finals. So if that means I have to play Scout to be able to play, so be it. We definitely look forward to the season.
The Season 7 starting values of GlobalClan Fire are:
- Scout: Nate Rivers
- Scout: pauldogg
- Roamer: hayes
- Pocket: vaati
- Demoman: pandoo
- Medic: Plaidinum
