CLG.Prime has announced that they will be shuffling their lineup yet again. These huge additions will see HotshotGG return to the top lane in place of Voyboy, Chauster move to the jungle and former Azubu Frost AD Carry Locodoco support Doublelift in the bottom lane. These huge lineup swaps happen after disappointing finishes in recent tournaments, particularly the Season 2 Finals where CLG failed to make it out of the group stage.
Let us know what you think of CLG's new team, and how it will do going forward in the comment section RoG'ers!
More information will be available as it comes in keep checking back and you can head over to Voyboy's AMA to ask him questions right now about the change http://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/11xd99/hey_im_voyboy_and_i_just_got_benched_ama
Here are some of Voyboy's repsonses in his AMA and reaction from around the scene:
On if he was going to stay with the team via Twitter
Voyboy: I am no longer on CLG. I wish them the best of luck in Season 3 and beyond. Looking for a team in the meantime.
Voyboy's thoughts on the changes
Voyboy: I do agree that Hotshot has been underperforming in the jungle to a certain extent. However, at the same time, fingers can easily be pointed to everyone on the team, citing games that they "threw" and declaring that they are a problem.
Honestly, I don't think a roster change was necessary. But having Hotshot bench himself while moving Chauster to the jungle and Loco support would have been a far better move in the grand scheme of things. It's his team though so its understandable that he would like to keep playing for sure.
On his recent performance and the suddenness of the decision
Voyboy: No I wasn't given any other options. It was very blunt and sudden and I was pretty much told that the decision was final and that nothing could be done.
Compared to other top laners? No I do not think that I have been underperforming. Have I been carrying as hard as I would like? No of course not. I know that I can play better, just as everyone should know that they can do better, however I have been out performing every top laner in NA very hard (at the very least) for a long while now.
Saintvicious provides his brutal response to the situation
Saintvicious: this seems familiar Hotshot sucking top decides to try support benches elementz.... realizes he sucks at it then goes back to top. Hotshot sucks at top benches me from jungle to try it out.... realizes he sucks at jungle goes back to top and benches Voyboy. I wonder where the problem is.
Locodco on joining the team
Locodco: 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 mindset and work ethic back to North America so that we may perform up to the CLG name in Season 3 and beyond.
