Counter Logic Gaming has announced that Jae-hyun “Huhi” Choi will take over as the starting mid laner for the team heading into the 2016 NA LCS.

Replacing Eugene “Pobelter” Park, who joined the team alongside Huhi in May, the move comes as a surprise after achieving successful results with the current roster. Winning the North American LCS Summer Split and qualifying for the 2015 World Championship for the first time since season two, Pobelter was regarded as one of the best mid laners in the region, often cited in the top two.  Despite their domestic success, CLG failed to exit the group stages at the 2015 World Championship, putting up a 2-4 record before being eliminated from the tournament.

Excerpt from the official statement by CLG:

 

It was not an easy decision to make. Eugene “Pobelter” Park has accomplished more than CLG could have hoped for during his time as a starter these past months. His efforts and talent were key in what culminated to be CLG’s first LCS championship victory. Although he will no longer be CLG’s starting mid laner, the team believes that he is an exceptionally talented and consistent player. CLG will be actively looking to provide Pobelter with the best possible opportunities moving into the next LCS season.

 

Despite no official games with the team, It appears Huhi has been meshing well and performing in scrims,prompting the decision. Huhi took to twitter after the announcement:

After a 3-4 run at the 2015 World Championship and making it to the world stage in what is considered a miracle run, Cloud 9 has announced that they will begin searching for either a new Jungler or Support player.

Current starting support Daerek “LemonNation” Hart will be stepping down from playing to transition into a staff role, where Cloud 9 will move forward based on who they find to fill the void in their roster, with two main ideas in mind:

 

  1. Recruiting a talented Jungler while Hai transitions to the Support role, or
  2. Recruiting a talented Support while Hai remains in the Jungler role.

 

NoL will continue to follow Cloud 9’s roster heading into the 2016 LCS Spring Split as the offseason develops.
