Home of the elimination game mode, Team Absolute’s journey into the new Unreal Tournament (UT) began early in the games development. Founding member Trinatek founded the clan with friends, and his relentless desire to improve saw the team rise to the upper echelons of the North American scene, regularly encountering adversaries, Allstars, in tense tournament finals. When news broke of the UTProLeague (UTPL), Absolute suffered the loss of Killing, who switched allegiances to their fierce rivals in order to team up with reflex (his 2v2 Team Deathmatch (TDM) partner) and Lavak3, who was unable to play early season. Adapting, Absolute recruited the South American phenom Matt and Capture the Flag (CTF) whizz kid, constabble, to form Half-Abs. Despite the restructuring, Half-Abs are looking to show they are still a force to be reckoned with even without their two chief damage dealers.
