ESPN reported last week on rumours surrounding Immortals' Joshua "Dardoch" Hartnett swapping teams with Counter Logic Gaming's Jake "Xmithie" Puchero, and now this has been confirmed by CLG themselves.
"I joined CLG primarily because they are a strong roster with a great support staff," Dardoch himself said about the move. "I hope everyone can accept me in place of Xmithie. I understand the concerns you probably have about me joining the roster, given my reputation, as well as it being the first roster change in quite some time for CLG. But I hope you guys support me either way and I'll do my best to make CLG the best team it can be."
"We knew lots of changes needed to be occur to obtain the results that we are seeking," added Trinitiii, Director of Esports. "CLG is committed to being the best and winning esports team - continuing the legacy of what made CLG the organisation it is today. Dardoch is a young, talented, and passionate player that brings with him an incredible amount of drive. With the new systems in place that include accountability, mindset, structure, and strategy we are confident that Dardoch will thrive in the CLG environment both in and out of the game."
Is this the kind of switch-up both teams needed?
