To shed some light on what's going on:
kbk and I did not leave just because we were upset over losing. Take the match vs Mihalys Flow as an example. Although we lost, matches like those were monumentally helpful in improving as a team and learning to be better players. The problem we were having on mS was that many of us did not get along well at all... Specifically, tang and I didn't really see eye-to-eye on a lot of things and it really impacted how we acted and played. Many of us were strongly influenced by how our comms were going (ex. match vs Mixup on snakewater, match vs br0 on viaduct). We started out strong and we were happy with how things were going, but things started to get worse. Nobody on our team expected to really be at the top of invite or anything, all of us just wanted to test the waters as a team and come back strong next season. However, half of the team was not happy with our team's attitude and did not want to pursue the current roster for another season.
I'm not trying to justify attributing to the death of an invite team. Obviously it's bad for the game and I apologize if anybody put their hopes and dreams into our team. However, as tang said, it's a videogame. I don't think anybody wants to take time out of their day to be unhappy. Losing was not the issue here, but rather our lack of effort into fixing our mistakes as players and as teammates when our team's chemistry was not working (i'm a part of the lack of effort).
I'd like to go ahead and say sorry to tang, squid, basik, and sweater. My original intentions for playing last season and this season were to play with sweater. When I talked to sweater about the offer, he encouraged me to play for them as he did not really want to continue makes Sense either. Basik, I realize I'm a total dick and everything, but I had a lot of fun playing/talking with you inside/outside of TF2 and I wish you the best.
Hopefully this doesn't get minus-fragged to oblivion, I'm sorry TF2 Community.
P.S. for people wondering, I had no control over everyone getting cut from the makes Sense roster. Also, shrew/relic would have been cut regardless of kbk/myself joining the roster.
