Hi, we are The Spacewhales. We have been around as a Team Fortress 2 team since March of 2010, progressing from low levels of play to our current position in ESEA-Invite. We formed before season 6 as a low open team, but quickly earned our place as an open playoff team with hard work and dedicated practice on the part of all 6 players. Soon after a 10-6 finish in our debut season, we made the necessary roster changes in order to continue growing as a team, while keeping as many players together as possible. During season 7 of intermediate, we made a name for ourselves with a strong 8-0 start to the season, which unfortunately did not last. Roster troubles hit us midway through the season and we finished 4th place, once again with a 10-6 record. Similar roster issues plagued the whales during season 8 in intermediate, where we landed yet another 10-6 finish. Unlike the majority of TF2 teams, we have stuck together through the rough patches and come out the other side as a much stronger team, and we were voted into Invite for season 9. We are currently 6th place in ESEA-I, with a 2-6 record halfway through the season. As only two of our members have invite experience, we are taking this season as a learning opportunity and are simply trying to get the most out of this season while preparing for the next. The astounding growth of North American Tf2 these past few months calls for greater growth at the top levels of play. The North American scene is currently sponsor hungry and is in danger of losing some of the prestige that comes with having sponsored teams to represent the top levels of play. This lack of sponsorship also endangers the one consistent LAN that the North American TF2 scene has the ESEA-I LAN held at the end of each season. The Spacewhales are currently contending for a spot this season and will be a top contender next season.

Oh my gosh, it's the whales.

I'd vouch for these guys, I remember playing with boomer on a team awhile back, along with Slnt, they were pretty humble, never outspoken and they've remained the same ever since.
