CLG Pobelter Benched to Academy LCS

by in League of Legends | Feb, 4th 2021

Former LCS champion and CLG alumnus Eugene “Pobelter” Park has been benched. Why, however, still isn’t clear. According to our sources, he’s been clashing heads with the CLG coaching staff and has been demoted to playing in Academy as a result.

A Surprising Move by CLG

An Acceptable Replacement

Instead of Pobelter, CLG has decided to start with Alexey “rjs” Zatorski, formerly known as Deus. Those who’ve watched Academy LCS last year are surely well-acquainted with this Canadian mid laner. He’s been both a top laner and mid throughout his career and has played for various different organizations, including M19, bbq Olivers, and — as of November 2019 — Counter Logic Gaming. Overall, he’s not exactly a stellar performer. “Mediocre” would perhaps be the most apt description of his Academy LCS tenure.

Regardless, he’s been given a chance to show his worth on the biggest of stages in North America. CLG is scheduled to face Dignitas, 100 Thieves, and Team SoloMid during their first week of play, so if you’re interested in finding out how they’ll fare without nearly half of their intended League of Legends line-up, make sure to tune in!
