Huge Changes at CLG - Aphromoo In (Duh), Link as Sub, CLG.EU Leaving Org, Doublelift NOT going to Korea

18 comments
In a few major turn of events, CLG announced several changes today including the long-awaited official addition of Aphromoo as support!

Here's what Zach had to say on joining the team:
Time to get down to business. [and defeat the Huns] Being given the opportunity to play support for CLG makes me a little giddy because I will be able to play a role I am most comfortable in, coming from a healer for seven years in World of Warcraft. I will be putting in hard work to master support coming from playing AD carry so much, but with being under CLG I will have the proper tools necessary in order to become the best support in the world. I am happy!
We love you Aphro!

This major news was quickly overshadowed by a darker set of announcements as CLG.EU is LEAVING the CLG banner! They haven't announced whose new banner they're flying under yet, but the teams will part ways on friendly terms.

HotshotGG had this to say on CLG.EU's departure:
While I am sad to see CLG EU leave, I understand their position and the wonderful opportunity that has been presented to them. In their time with the organization, Snoopeh, Krepo, Yellowpete, Froggen, and Wickd have proven themselves to be one of the most consistent and formidable teams in the League of Legends professional scene. I am proud of what they have accomplished; grateful for the value and honor they brought to CLG; thankful for the time we spent together as teammates and friends at events, in Korea, at the gaming house in California; and excited to see them continue to develop and grow not only as players, but as people. Good luck in Season 3 and beyond!
Not only is CLG.EU leaving, but CLG.Black is disbanding as well, meaning happy news as long-time member of that team Link115 will be joining the main CLG.NA team as a substitute (most likely mid solo.)

CLG is also going through a few management changes, including the resignation of HotshotGG's parents as executive officers in corporation. Source

There have also been rumors afloat about doublelift possibly moving to Korea, but he squelched these rumors with the following twitter post:



CLG.Froggen as pictured above

What do you think about these changes? Will they hurt the organization or are they better positioned than ever before?

    I believe they're recruiting a new player to their roster and trying to carry on without him. You can check out the short convo about it here http://www.nerfplz.com/2012/12/aphromoo-unofficially-joins-clg-lineup.html

  3. If you look back on most of FeaR's games, the main reason for losses is the enemy team shutting down bottom lane (AKA Aphro). The team was therefore inconsistent as they relied almost soley on their AD carry (and sometimes Mancloud but not consistently), and their team comps weren't focused on saving the AD carry (besides the Support Morgana picks). If FeaR used team comps similar to the current CLG team comps, making use of Shen, Malphite, and Maokai, more often then FeaR might have performed better.

    Hi Ryuda, thank you for the very insightful response! That's a good point, it's possible that FeaR might perform better without Aphro, despite how good he is just by changing their mindset around a bit.

    That's a good point Durem, hopefully they learned enough from Aphro's pro strategies to succeed!
