CLG announce roster opening

Counter Logic Gaming have announced that they are accepting applications for the last player position on their team.

CLG are currently on the lookout for a new fifth player after parting ways with Peter "ptr" Gurney in the aftermath of a disappointing 5th-6th place finish at the ESEA Finals.

Josh "jdm64" Marzano initially stepped in as a substitute, but for Wednesday's CEVO clash against Team Liquid CLG fielded Ace Gaming's Mohamad "mOE" Assad as their fifth player. The move paid off as CLG eased past Liquid on just two maps, the first of which by a 16-1 scoreline.

However, the North American team have not yet made a decision on this matter, and while they are currently trying out potential North American candidates, they will be accepting applications from players from any region in the world for this position, which him allow the organisation to open up the pool of talent to choose from.

To apply for a spot on CLG's starting roster, these are the requirements that a player needs to meet:

  • Must be able to move into a gaming house in the United States
  • Good communication skills Works well with others
  • Ability to receive criticism (constructive or otherwise)
  • Flexible schedule
  • Punctual
  • High level experience in leagues (ESL, CEVO, ESEA, FaceIT) or notable LAN performances

All player applications have to be sent to [email protected] and include a personal presentation and also information about previous competitive experience.

CLG's decision to accept international candidates could see yet another North American team pick European talent after Luminosity Gaming signed Swedish ace Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi, formerly of Orbit.
