Konstantinos “Forg1ven” Tzortziou will remain in the League Championship Series after having his compulsory military service deferred.
The H2k-Gaming AD Carry revealed last week that he would likely have to take part in military service in his home country, Greece. Thanks to interventions from his team and appeals to the relevant authorities, Tzortziou won’t have to put his career on hold.
Considered one of the best mechanical players in the game, Tzortziou has helped his reach sit joint first in the LCS with a playoff berth already secured.
His career has often hit roadblocks. In 2015, while signed to Gambit Gaming, Tzortziou received a four game LCS ban for “toxic behaviour” during a key period of the 2015 Summer Split. Tzortziou was later moved to the substitutes bench and made available for transfer.
But since joining H2k-Gaming, Tzortziou is enjoying one of his most successful seasons to date. The team have beaten 2015 World Championships semifinalists Fnatic and Origen over the past two weeks on their path to an 11-3 record.
