Counter Logic Gaming and Immortals have decided to make the second ever jungler trade in the LCS and sent Jake “Xmithie” Puchero to IMT while bringing Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett aboard.
CLG had a decent season making it to playoffs, but were knocked out during the first round against FlyQuest after a reverse sweep. After that unfortunate end to the season, CLG took a look at their system and decided that Dardoch was the way to go in starting the new split.
I joined CLG primarily because they are a strong roster with a great support staff that I think can help me improve as a person and player,” said Dardoch on joining CLG. “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. – Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett
CLG is hoping this change in roster bring with it the fortune they experienced the last time they brought members aboard. In Spring 2016 they welcomed Stixxay and Huhi and won the LCS title for the second time. You can read their full statement on the trade here.
