Over the past 29 seasons, ESEA Invite has seen all kinds of teams, ranging from the dysfunctional, to the passionate, to the dominant. However, this season on Hell's Kitchen, Chef Ramsay has assembled a new crop of 6 prospects from all across America ready to bring everything to levels never seen before.
After being eliminated in Season 27 and denied their welfare, Kev777, tojo, and trippa are back, earning other chance to receive some ESEA prize money (and not a restaurant in Vegas). The MyAnimeList core is joined by sandblast, whose presence is sure to push things to the boiling point, after the collapse of Faint Gaming in the last season. Completing the team is Daffodil and Invite rookie chunkey on the Medic and Demoman stations respectively.
Head Chef sandblast briefly described what they prepared for the TF2 viewers.
After a long offseason and a good amount of tryouts, we ended up with a roster we are very happy with. Trip, Kev, and Tojo all played with each other in the past. Daf was kind of a no brainer as he went LFT as his team got moved to IM. The stand out person is by far chunkey. We really needed a strong demo and he has always pounded in pugs/IM scrims. We decided to give him a chance and he blew our expectations out of the water. We are happy with the pre-season shuffle and we’re excited to play the season. :3
Sous Chef chunkey also gave their thoughts on their debut Invite season.
I’ve been playing the game for a while although this would be 2 real season on demo. I've always wanted to play Invite and I'm glad I was given the opportunity.
I'm coming in hot fellas.
Prepped and ready for dinner service, the Hell’s Kitchen opening-night brigade consists of:
- Scout: sandblast
- Scout: Kev777
- Roamer: tojo
- Pocket: trippa
- Demoman: chunkey
- Medic: Daffodil
