CLG Decides to Pick nahtE and Subroza
Over the past two weeks, Counter Logic Gaming has been hosting tryouts to find replacements for Tarik “tarik” Celik and Jacob “FugLy” Medina. Today, Counter Logic Gaming announced on their site that they have decided on their two new players: Ethan “nahtE” Arnold and Yassine “Subroza” Taoufik.
Counter Logic Gaming is continuing their trend of having younger players in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene; an example is Kenneth “koosta” Suen, who is only 20. Their two newest members are on the young side compared to other players, and Counter Logic Gaming is totally fine about that. We know they are totally fine about this due to what they said in their announcement, “In the end, the CS:GO team and staff decided that developing young and up-and-coming talent was the best option for the team’s future.”
Counter Logic Gaming has not had the best run so far in 2016, having their best placing be a fourth place finish in the Global eSports Cup Season 1. Counter Logic Gaming doesn’t fully believe they will have the best start with this new roster, as they pointed out in their announcement, “It will take time for the team to come into form, but we are confident that we will be able to compete at a top level as nahtE and Subroza develop under the guidance of our veteran players and support staff.”
Counter Logic Gaming's new roster is as follows:
- James "Hazed" Cobb
- Stephen "reltuC" Cutler
- Kenneth "koosta" Suen
- Ethan "nahtE" Arnold
- Yassine “Subroza” Taoufik
