#1 NA Invite Top 100: #5-#1 in News

Editor's Note
And that is that! Four months, twelve articles, over 20,000 words, too many hours of research and fact-checking. The list isn't perfect, far from it in fact, but I'm pretty happy with what I was able to put together and the levels of discussion it generated hasn't been seen on TFTV in quite some time.

First things first, the NA Invite Top 100 would not have been possible without the contributions of TheFragile, SpaceCadet, mustardoverlord, and dMenace. The former two were with me at the inception of the Top 100 and we originally planned to have individual lists that would've merged into a final product before real life circumstances took over. The latter two I consulted quite regularly throughout the process over various information and opinions. All four provided me with incredibly valuable insight especially from eras and players that I was far less familiar with. Others that helped me with various aspects include Jojo, Crasian, and fleskore.

While the Top 100 naturally focused on the players, I'd be remiss if I didn't at least take the opportunity here to mention notable community figures throughout NATF2's lifespan. People like CB and Lange, the minds behind MGE, Flame for TF2Lobby and HUD customization, and SizzlingCalamari and zoob for SizzlingStats and logstf respectively. cinq, reilly, erynn, and KevinIsPwn for various pug systems utilized through NATF2's lifespan. The eXtelevision crew and close affiliates like eXtine, duder, Salamancer, and Lucky Luke. Casters from all branches of the ancestral tree including but not limited to leogeo, cbear, djc, Sigma, MR SLIN, Marxist, gecks, and Jarrett. Writers like rK and london_calling, the former for providing coverage during NATF2's infancy and the latter for inspiring me to give writing a try. League head admins Kalkin, Killing, and tri for ESEA, Daffodil, Makkabeus, and reno for RGL. Head of TF2 operations for RGB LAN TheFragile. Sponsors like Nahanni, Kredible, and Witness. enigma for creating TeamFortressTV which has been the home of NA competitive discussion for the past decade. And anyone else that has made signficant contributions to the NA scene: the various TFTV staff, TOTH staff, Newbie Mixes staff, frag video editors, etc. There's simply too many great people to list and this would've turned into an article series of it's own. But the community appreciates all that you've done, make no mistake.

Here are the plethora of resources I used for the project.

* NA Invite Top 100 Main spreadsheet - includes a timeline and previous drafts
* NA Invite Top 100 Candidates spreadsheet
* SpaceCadet's Invite Player Index - statistics and details of all Invite players up to ESEA S26
* TF2 Liquipedia
* ESEA League Leaders spreadsheet - fun little piece I did a while back that came in handy
* ESEA Statistics - ol' unreliable

Perhaps in the future if another person or group of people decide to tackle this challenge again after more TF2 stories get written, all this can be the blueprint for their ambitions. Lastly, I must thank you the readers. Making such a series would be pointless if there wasn't anyone around to view it. The NA Invite Top 100 at its core was meant to be a celebration of our scene and community so I hope you enjoyed the journey, and if nothing else I hope it was able to teach you something new about the incredible history of our game. May the new year bring bigger and brighter things for competitive Team Fortress 2. God Bless, stay safe.

My favorite play ever:

ScrewB is systematically triple airshot by BLANC Esports:

Here's a pair of silly airshots on Soldier that didn't result in kills but I'm proud of nonetheless:

#5 TYSON LFT in Recruitment (looking for team)

Mechanics-wise, Tyson is absolutely ready for Advanced. Both Soldier and Scout have really good DM and assuming he continues to grind that will only improve. Probably more comfortable and confident on the Soldier and therefore is his stronger class. Good communication on his bombs and flanks as a roamer, which surprised and impressed me since he doesn't have too much experience under his belt (I believe he had three seasons of RGL prior to S7). Did not strike me as someone that new with his understanding of the game.

However, mentality and attitude is another story. Simply put: Tyson gets easily frustrated but also airs out his grievances in Mumble in a non-constructive manner. Whether we were up 4-0 or down 4-0 he'd complain if a push went poorly or etc. We found him difficult to work with in that regard. He's a good player, but not a good teammate. If he has worked on these issues, he could be a really strong asset to a team because again: he can keep up with some of the stronger players in Advanced. If not, then things could play out like they did this past season with a team deciding he isn't worth the hassle. Hopefully it's the former. Wishing you the best of luck, Tyson.

#24 quacks lft in Recruitment (looking for team)

Pretty good Soldier given his relative lack of experience. Impressed with how confident he was with his maincalling, though could use some extra guidance from time to time by a veteran Medic or combo Scout. quacks has a high ceiling, just needs to find the right team leader and environment to help him unlock it. And obviously not to get too owned by his scheduling. Good luck in your search.

#96 FrickMyNick LFT in Recruitment (looking for team)

Talented player, would be a solid addition on any class (except maybe Demo). Hilarious and great personality. Can provide a leadership role for a team if needed or take a backseat and just frag out. Would strongly recommend for playoffs Advanced and higher.

#53 TF2 Toxicity in TF2 General Discussion
alex80all of you hating on me for stating facts... I learn from the best. Larry Bird was a trash talker, and one of the greatest to ever do it. Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan, MJ. The list goes on. I take from those who understand that toxicity is a part of domination. You bunch of mary's want to high five the other team after getting 5-0'd? Go right ahead. I will be finding out where they live and exacting revenge. Don't start with me you little children.

Please shut the fuck up.

#8 RGL S7 LBF: Like A G6 vs. Witness Gaming in Events

Hell of a show and major props to the G6 gang, but the decision to not ban Granary during map selection is mind-boggling to me. Could have definitely landed the upset on a different map I feel.

#3 RGL S7 LBSF: Like A G6 vs. MyAnimeList in Matches
glassi think production should take a page from soccer vod websites and keep the stream running after the match so you can't tell who wins based on vod length

You're watching NA TF2, the playoff VODs will all be hours long and ambiguous anyway. Have you seen the pregame and halftime bullshit?

#6 Froyotech VS Witness Gaming Playoffs Round 2 in TF2 General Discussion

Witness definitely have a great shot at getting to grands from winner's side. They've already previously beaten froyo on two of the three maps, and barely lost on Process earlier in this season. Though for some reason that match lists froyo losing? Not sure what happened there. I think the key difference for this season (besides the froyo roster change duh) - and assuming nature takes its course and they meet again in grands - is that with Viaduct out, there's only two KOTH maps in rotation. b4nny has obviously learned from last grands and will instantly ban one of them (as he did here).

Important matchups will be if artist can continue to keep up with habib, and of course how each Medic performs. lolguy didn't have a great Gully vs. MAL, and if he makes those same mistakes again froyo will capitalize better. On the other hand, meyy's Snakewater regular season game against wG was rough as well, so if one of them drops the ball could see the game swing quickly to the opposing side. Would not be surprised to see every map be decided by one round, or the series going either way.

#105 darwin/grapejuice lft in Recruitment (looking for team)

Having been teammates with Grape Juice while he was playing two different classes in two different stages of his TF2 career, I can confidently say that he has grown a lot both as an individual and teammate over the years. Passionate about the game and how to improve, and would thrive in an environment where his teammates share the same sentiments. Can get a little agitated at times but it's from his drive for the game (not that he can't improve on how he responds to adversity). Will laugh at you as you struggle through Persona 4 for the first time. Good luck on your search Grape.

#40 taiga lft in Recruitment (looking for team)

We had many roster changes and shifts this past season but the one that hurt the most was losing taiga. He's fucking cracked, no two ways around it. In his first match with BLANC he dropped a 50 bomb. Constantly gets frightening accuracy numbers. Will switch to Sniper and headshot the enemy Medic on command. That's all the in-game duties you'd want a flank Scout to perform, but he also has a good heart. Cares about improving and certainly has the drive for it. Might be a little prone to tilt at times but hopefully he's worked on that. He's also frankly hilarious and will give you many memorable lines throughout the course of a season. Assuming his availability has improved for 2022, any Advanced squads needing a flank Scout should be on notice. I held him back for two seasons, so it's time he gets the recognition and playoffs debut he deserves.

#79 Jojo lft in Recruitment (looking for team)

I've said it before but Jojo was a player I tried to sign for years. After spending two seasons with him in RGL, I knew why and that I was correct. Jojo is an excellent combo Scout (though I'm sure he could tear it up on the flank) but more importantly cares about the team / his teammates. Very good at giving constructive criticism and also receiving it, which is a rarity in our scene. As this past season concluded Jojo told me he has that itch (and the time) to grind his Scout and that should terrify you. Do not be fooled by his S7 Main results. Put him on combo, and watch him work.
