. Apolodosh, Dunk Masters, and Fred V all look like top three contenders and Super Handsome Inteligent Team and Amicitia Nova, both previous advanced champions, have moved up to Invite. Now let’s get into the teams. 1. Apolodosh
Apolodosh is ready with the exact same roster from Season 3 looking to take first place. With KND's unfortunate demise, it's just that much easier for AD to finally get 1st place in Invite.
dev have played at the top level for multiple seasons, making them one of the best flanks in Invite. Not to say the AD combo is weak though. There is not a single team that can beat
Arzt Hispanian when he is fueled by ulterior motives. In recent scrims they have had some shaky koth results against Fred V, even dropping rounds to Amicitia Nova on Ashville.2. Fred V
Fred V, led by pablo, is possibly the most DM-heavy team that will be playing in Invite this season. In their early scrims, they have shown incredible koth results, beating AD on Product and Lakeside. Their payload, however, is another story entirely. Not very clean.
rain can all play multiple classes at an Invite level, so there may be dual roster situation with one being for koth and one being for payload and steel. 3. Dunk Master
Dunk Masters is picking up the pieces where Invidus left off. While tacos is still leading the team, he has moved from
fruitcup take his place.
evil remains one of the key players of the roster.
lenny has proved to be a top 3 sniper this season, completely dominating snipers like yosh and CazaroC during Region Wars. The combo of
civ looks to be extremely strong, with
Makkabeus being a great source of damage and
HA Johnny and
civ keeping their medic safe from spies and bombers alike.4. Amicitia Nova
Amicitia Nova finally moves up after a season break to compete in Invite after winning advanced in season 2. They’ve managed to keep about half the roster the same, keeping
Sei, and of course the glorious, handsome, and amazing leader
Poseidon is a great pickup to compliment
Catalyst and keep the flank healthy. Even though
Rayman5000 have never played together, the scrim results show that they are adapting well. They have taken 2 rounds off AD on Ashville and had decisive victories over Impostors on both payload and koth. 5. Impostors
Flare is back with his boys looking to have a more successful Invite season than the last. To help him reach this goal, he’s picked up
d3nny. After getting every single placement medal in advanced,
Mono72 is finally moving up to Invite and is looking to leave a mark.
d3nny, on the other hand, is currently making his mark as the hot, up and coming sniper for Invite. d3nny, also known as john beans, has been dominating on sniper as of late, including hitting crazy quickscopes such as this one. 6. :squirtyay:
:squirtyay: features a lot of old players returning along with some new blood to the Invite scene. The most notable return easily being
watterson. He was one of the most dominant snipers in plat for many seasons, and he’s finally back to add some spice to the sniper pool.
Octa make for a scary combo, with insane damage potential between the two. The flank of
Voosh may be completely new to Invite, but it won’t stop them from competing with current Invite flanks.7. Second Wind
Disbanding after season 24 of UGC platinum, Second Wind players either retired or moved on to other teams. This season though, this gang of friends is back together and ready to compete in Invite.
Sovereign has made a strong return, top fragging in several scrims and matches against other Invite teams.
exile has always had extremely solid damage numbers, especially in the recent Invite Qualifiers Cup. Seeing
Fallen Gourd off sniper is an interesting choice, but he seems to be adapting well to the class swap.
cinder is also off sniper for a season, but he is starting to pick up heavy quickly. Even with such strong players, the roster overall has had some disappointing scrim results, almost not making Invite due to the Invite Qualifiers Cup. Overall, Second Wind is looking like a fun team made by a bunch of friends.8. Burgers & Homies
Chocc carries on the B&H legacy with some new branding in Burgers and Homies. The flank is easily the strongest part of this team, with
Rebel having great DM on scout and
DOOMBRINGER_ bringing the DOOM onto his enemies constantly. While
BLNKT is relatively untested in Invite, if he can adapt quickly this team is going to improve exponentially.
Mhenlo has had a decent return to form, slowly getting back into the groove of sniping again and
Kris18 makes his return to competitive TF2 after several seasons of break.9. Super Handsome Inteligent Team
S.H.I.T. has moved up to Invite after winning Advanced in last season. The transition into Invite has been rough for them though. Even though they had their fees waived, they have lost
shaded were some great last-minute pickups for S.H.I.T., but will it be enough to smooth their transition into Invite? As of late, they have been dropping rounds to teams like markers and the e-boys in Advanced.
