CLG: Voyboy Out, Locodoco In

posted by Camouflage23, 1 year ago
The results of the NA teams at the World Championships a few weeks ago were far worse than the ones from EU and Asian teams. With many people thinking that there will be changes in the NA scene to fix this matter, us CounterLogicGaming Prime is the first team to do so.


CLG.Locodoco
us CLG.Prime released a statement saying that us Joe 'Voyboy' Esfahani will be released from his contract and that kr Choi 'Locodoco' Yoonsup will be picked up for the support role. With this change, us Steve 'Chauster' Chau will be moving to the jungle and
ca George 'HotShotGG' Georgallidis will be going back to the top lane. They are also hoping to return to their former dominant strength from Season 1, where they won the World Cyber Games 2010 and the Intel Extreme Masters Cologne.

'Chauster's favorite champion is Lee Sin which he plays a lot in the Solo Queue. He also jungled once for CLG.Prime using Lee Sin when they faced their counterpart eu CLG.eu during the group stages of the Azubu The Champions Spring 2012. 'HotShotGG' will return to his more familiar Top lane. During Season 1 his Nidalee was a must-ban against CLG.Prime as he would crush enemies who allowed him to have the champion.


Where will Voyboy go?
This is the third time that CLG.Prime has changed their roster. First it was ca Cody 'Elementz' Sigfusson who got traded to us Curse Gaming with us Peter 'Doublelift' Peng coming to CLG.Prime in return. Then, us Brandon 'Saintvicious' DiMarco was replaced by 'Voyboy' when the infamous tri-switch happened between Curse Gaming, CLG.Prime and us Dignitas.






CLG.Prime's Line-up:

kr Choi 'Locodoco' Yoonsup - Support
ca George 'HotShotGG' Georgallidis - Top lane
ca Micheal 'bigfatlp' Tang - AP carry
us Peter 'Doublelift' Peng - AD carry
us Steve 'Chauster' Chau - Jungle



'Locodoco' gave the following statement regarding his arrival to CLG.Prime:

After declining several offers from Korean teams I'm glad to finally settle down with CLG. I see an immense potential within the team and hope to bring my Korean mind-set and work ethic back to North America so that we may perform up to the CLG name in Season 3 and beyond.

-Choi 'Locodoco' Yoonsup, CLG.Prime Support



'Voyboy's post on his FB page:

I am no longer on CLG. I wish them the best of luck in Season 3 and beyond.

I'll be looking to join a new team that can embrace me in the near future.

-Joe 'Voyboy' Esfahani

I agree

also, I've seen HSGG play 1v1 vs voyboy 4 times, and he's won 3/4 or 4/4 can't remember one of the outcomes.

Of course that doesn't necessarily say anything. But as long as HotShotGG wants to play, he will play, and top lane is the best place for him to be at.
just my opinion :)

I might have gotten this whole roster change wrong as well as the article but i dont believe he was kicked, just benched. I think he is a substitute now rather than a lone wolf

I am quite sure i saw on some website that he was being set as sub instead of being plain thrown off, but that website might very well have been completely wrong, idk ;)
