After a terrible beginning of the spring split of the League of Legends Championship Series, the CLG management decided to try to save the situation. To this end, they brought in Eugene “Pobelter” Park to the composition, who ended his brief cooperation with Team Liquid.
For the 23-year-old, this is a return to the old basket, because he has already had the opportunity to perform under the flag of the North American organization between May and November of 2015, reaching with them even the championship title in the summer edition of NA LCS 2015 and promotion to Worlds. However, for some time Park was out of the game, because in December of last year he decided to get involved with Liquid, where he served in a coach position and substituted for Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen, whose appearance in the first weeks of the season was uncertain due to visa problems.
Ultimately, however, Pobelter could focus only on training work, because temporarily the place of the Dane was taken by Shern “Shernfire” Cherng Tai from the academy roster.
Despite this, the American will still be performing in the ongoing edition of the competition, but now under the flag of CLG. Already in the upcoming weekend, during which the team will face Cloud9 and FlyQuest, he will jump into the middle lane, where he will replace Lee “Crown” Min-ho. The Korean has not looked good so far and has added his brick to the not very glorious balance of 1-7, although it must be remembered that due to the protracted visa process he did not have much time to prepare.
At the moment, it is not known whether the roster change on the road is permanent or only temporary, although it can be suspected that the results achieved by the team will affect the decision.
The composition of CLG is as follows:
Kim “Ruin” Hyeong-min
Raymond “Wiggily” Griffin
Lee “Crown” Min-ho
Eugene “Pobelter” Park
Trevor “Stixxay” Hayes
Andy “Smoothie” Ta
Kim “SSONG” Sang-soo (coach)
