Pandemic Announces New TF2 Lineup
After a while without a TF2 lineup, Pandemic has returned to the game.
Pandemic, a team which has had wild success in the TF2 scene, left the scene not too long ago due to team instability and the overall competition, LAN and online, declining overall.
They announced a new team last night, featuring the return of Nick "TheFragile" Leon and Jeff "jmitchell" Mitchell from their first squad, which had wild success during their tenure in the organization.

Conway, Arkansas - October 13, 2009 - TeamPandemic, LLC. returns to competitive Team Fortress with the announcement of a new lineup for the '09-'10 season.
The organization's original TF2 division went on a virtual rampage in 2008, bringing home a string of consecutive victories which included the CGS Championships, CEVO-P, ESEA, PwnageTV, NVISION and more.
Fans of Pandemic and followers of the scene will immediately recognize the return of Nick "TheFragile" Leon and Jeff "jmitchell" Mitchell from that very squad. "Returning to Pandemic is going to be a great experience for me personally; it's nice to tag up again," said TheFragile in his latest interview. "While this team is essentially new (as a unit), we plan to perform very well in the upcoming ESEA season. We're capable of a lot and I expect great results."
"The team certainly has some big shoes to fill, but this time around we're going to try and have a little more fun and get the community involved," added Chris Lemley, Pandemic's manager. "As for the return of old faces, Nick was one of the most professional and likeable characters to ever come through this organization and, though I don't know Jeff on the same personal level, he put in some quality work while under the tag his first time around. We're glad to have them all representing us."
