ETF2L Premiership team ChampGG.K! have made another roster change after their acquisition of spudd earlier this week. The team have decided to cut their pocket T0m, and will be picking up Silentes to fill in the missing gap.
T0m has been on ChampGG.K! since Season 24, when the team was formerly known as Comfortably Spanked. In addition to three seasons in the ETF2L Premiership, he also played with the team at both DreamHack Summer 2016 and Insomnia58, where he placed 4th and 5th-6th respectively.
We spoke with the team’s roamer Thaigrr about this roster change:
The team had the goal of being a top two team as a minimum; at the start of the season it seemed like it would be the case but moving through the season it began to crumble and tension became a big issue with the team. People were just not enjoying the game anymore, which lead adysky to not want to play anymore.
Things improved but were not great with the addition of spudd, so the team made a decision to make another change. No one in the team has a personal problem with T0m, just in the team the general atmosphere and mood improved when we played with Silentes. No doubt T0m is the best pocket I have played with bar none, and I speak for my team when I say this, but recently it has just been a chore to play rather than a good experience. We are not placing the blame all on T0m either - each and every one of us has a problem we need to fix - but as a group decision this was the best option in our eyes. Whether it was the right decision we don't know yet, but something needed to be done.
T0m also gave a statement regarding the recent situation behind his removal from the team:
I am truly sorry with the way things devolved in this team. All I wanted was to push the other five guys to be the best they could be. Sure, I could have gone about it in different ways but I guess that’s just what you think all the hours you put into the team gets thrown in your face.
I am not done with this game and hopefully I can find another team that actually has the same aims that I do. If not, then thank you to everyone who supported me over the years it’s been a great ride but I guess it might be time for me to get off and move onto something else.
Silentes was last seen in Premiership with sauna slayers back in Season 25, but is better known for his time on Full Tilt dating back from Season 21 and most notably at Insomnia58, where he got a 2nd place finish with the team. With their second roster change in less than a week, ChampGG.K! will look to climb to the top of the Premiership.
The new roster for ChampGG.K! is:
- Scout: Funs
- Scout: Maros
- Roamer: Thaigrr
- Pocket: Silentes
- Demoman: spudd
- Medic: Turbo
