Counter Logic Gaming have announced early this morning that two of their players, Loda and Smulgullig, have decided to voluntarily leave their CLG teammate.
Loda wanted to comment on the choice of his employment and the future of his former teammates :
Jonathan "Loda" Berg
Its been a hard couple of trips for me since my vacation. In the beginning it was very hard for me to swap from my role as captain to whatever role pajkatt would chose for me. Practice worked out, I learned how to take on a more passive part of the team. I improved and returned to somewhat around my normal skill level. There were a lot of other things that needed to take a higher priority in my life. These issues made me focus my eyes on another part of the world.
Its not an easy choice chosing to leave a team and a project that I once decided to create. I didn’t plan on many of these new priorities, but there are things that are just more important than gaming. So I had to weigh my spot on a top team in the world, a possible top 3 placement at TI2 vs. everything else.
It was an extremely hard choice...
But I have faith in my team. I believe that they can handle losing a player like me, and hopefully find someone who can fit just as well. Im rooting for you guys at TI2, and who knows, maybe I’ll meet you there :)
Thanks for the time on the team.
But the team was able to quickly find their two successors. Indeed, the first player to join the team is Lacoste who used to play on EG and who recently left Darer to join CLG.
The second player to join the team is Misery, who played for Fnatic, MYM and then EG prior to his move to CLG
