Liquid aPG Steps Down, Replaced By Assault
Due to circumstances beyond his control, Team Liquid player Bradley "aPureGangster" Laws has chosen to temporarily forfeit his spot on the roster.
aPG believes that he will be unable to compete in top form by the time the Last Chance Qualifier starts on May 21. Facing severe health problems, he is unsure of his ability to concentrate and play at the level expected of him. As a result, he has requested his teammates drop him and find a new player.
To honor this request, Liquid has picked up longtime competitive player Clete "Assault" LoRusso, who served as the team’s coach at the Summer Qualifier LAN.
Do not worry about aPG's future with Team Liquid; Assault has said that if the team qualifies, aPG can return any time he is ready.
aPG’s injuries are the outcome of a car accident shortly before leaving for the HCS Pro League Summer Qualifier. After playing through the tournament regardless and returning home, he was diagnosed with a severe concussion.
We wish the best to aPG and hope to see him in the HCS Pro League soon enough. He is an amazing player, and competitive Halo would not be the same without him.
