Royal 2 Hospitalized, Rammyy to Sub
Counter Logic Gaming’s key member Mathew “Royal 2” Fiorante has been hospitalized due to illness. To help defend their first place title, the team has recruited Abel “Rammyy” Garcia to play in his place.
Rammyy, a full time member of the open circuit team French Toast Mafia, also subbed for Team Allegiance last week. Filling in for RyaNoob, he certainly impressed the guys on CLG. Helping the team to win both of their series, he showed off his prowess by defeating both Team Liquid and Renegades 3-1.
His success in the HCS should be no surprise, however. French Toast Mafia, although an open circuit team, is in first place by a wide margin and are more or less guaranteed a shot at promotion for the next HCS Pro League Season.
Rammyy’s skill is not going to be wasted as the team faces off against both Renegades and Team EnVyUs this week. Beating EnVyUs is especially vital as they are only one spot behind CLG in the current standings.
No matter what the results are this week, Rammyy has clearly shown himself to be a top prospect for Halo 5, an amazing feat considering this is the first game he has ever competed in at the top level.
As of today, Royal 2 has been in the hospital for three days, with little information coming from the team about what exactly is wrong. It is clear that he is trying to retain his privacy and that no one should dig too far into it. Hopefully, Royal 2 sees a quick recovery and we see him back with his team soon.
You can see Rammyy and the full time members of CLG play tomorrow in the last series of the day.
How do you think Rammyy is going to perform this week? Do you think he is going to have a repeat of his team with Allegiance? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us @GAMURScom.
