Two weeks ago, Counter Logic Gaming announced that in lieu of visa issues, jungler Jacob “Xmithie” Puchero would be ineligible to compete at the 2015 World Championship. Now, those issues have been resolved, and CLG has announced that Xmithie will be starting for the team in the Group Stages in Paris.

From the announcement:

Several members of the community reached out to us after the announcement that Jake’s VISA wasn’t possible to complete in the time allotted. These people were instrumental in advising and rushing the process at critical areas to get it completed. We couldn’t have done this VISA without them and Xmithie wouldn’t have gone to group stages.

We are so grateful for their help and wanted to list them below:

  • Paolo Bago from the Philippine Esport Organization
  • Michal Meduna from the European Commission
  • Also the Philippine Esports Team, Philippine Senator Bam Aquino and his office, and Norman E. Cualteros.
  • Our local advisor Joyluck

 

Xmithie expressed his gratitude on twitter:

In a surprise announcement, CLG has announced that they will not be using their regular starting jungler, Jacob “Xmithie” Puchero at the 2015 World Championship due to ongoing Visa issues. In his place, substitute mid-laner Choi “Huhi” Jae-hyun will take on the role for the tournament, playing for the first time with the team since his addition to the team. CLG has released a statement on the swap:

We will be fielding Jae-Hyun “Huhi” Choi as our starting jungler for the World Championship tournament. Huhi has trained with our team extensively for the last four months. A vast network supports Huhi in his transition to jungle. This includes Xmithie himself, our coaching staff, a Korean support staff, and several professional junglers.
