Kori returns to Meet Your Makers after fine for breach of contract
Wolski left the team just days before their season opener, leaving them to scramble to find a replacement in Marius “Blizer300” Hæsumgaard. The team started the season with a 1-3 record, a disappointment after a promising 2014 Summer Split under the Supa Hot Crew name.
Last season Wolski emerged as a talented up-and-coming mid laner as a member of Supa Hot Crew while using the alias "SELFIE," but developed a reputation as someone who's hard to work with. Jungler Matt “Impaler” Taylor was forced off the team in part due to disagreements with Wolski, Taylor said in a Daily Dot interview.
Today Wolski apologized for what he called an “emotional” decision to leave the team, and the squad has apparently welcomed him back.
"I left the team very late what was very selfish move especially because LCS was very close to start, but at that moment I was really emotionally shattered," Wolski said on the MYM website. "I left because I didn’t feel good with the team atmosphere and overall how people were speaking and acting towards each other."
MYM is inserting Wolski back in the lineup, but only after fining him for breach of contract, as Wolski was still signed to Meet Your Makers when he left to join a North American team.
The team’s head coach, Jakob “YamatoCannon” Mebdi, seems confident the squad can put this dispute behind them, praising Wolski for a "clear improvement" in his character. They’ll need to if they want to avoid relegation in the increasingly competitive LCS.
"The return of [Wolski] will provide us with creativity and leadership on the rift, which I can honestly say is what we lacked in the game," Mebdi said. "A leader inspires through actions, in this case mostly communication inside of the game, and I am sure Marcin is ready to take on that responsibility."
It’s hard to see what’s inspiring about bailing on your team a few days before the start of the season, but Meet Your Makers is in a tough spot. It’s Wolski who put them there, and, apparently, it’s Wolski they’ll rely on to get them out.
