Saintvicious and CLG part ways, CLG.NA Picks up Voyboy

Today we are announcing the departure of League of Legends player Brandon “Saintvicious” DiMarco. Brandon and CLG are parting on amicable terms and he will continue his professional League of Legends career filling the jungler role for Team Curse.

Also, we are excited to announce the addition of Joe “Voyboy” Esfahani to the CLG.NA roster. Voyboy will play top lane for the team while HotshotGG moves to fill the jungler role. Voyboy will officially become a full member of CLG following the NESL's upcoming EPS tournament.

Voyboy had this to say about his move to CLG:

“With a heavy heart I'll be leaving Team Dignitas, but I am confident in my former team's ability to rise to the occasion and become just as strong as before. Therefore, it is with great excitement that I will be joining the roster of Counter Logic Gaming to fill the Top Lane role. It is my absolute intent that CLG will be as strong as ever going into the Season 2 Championships and I am grateful for this opportunity that I have been given. Thank you.”

Pick up best top lane NA.

Have HotshotGG jungle.

Call me out on this but I believe Hotshot will eventually become a better jungler than Saint.
HS has insane mechanics (most people don't know) and just as much knowledge. Everything else will evolve with time.

That's ... sad. I liked Saint really much, but with voyboy we got a nice new top lane. Only thing which is kind of weird: HSGG Jungle? Let's see ...

Wow saint leaving CLG i will be honest i never thought it would happen. I still have faith in Hotshot being a great jungler, i mean he has amazing knowledge of the game, and with time i'm sure he will be a phenomenal jungler. Though i must say i am happy to see Voyboy join CLG such a great top laner, and no offense to hotshot at all, but Voyboy will bring more variety of champions to top lane that can lead to different team comps.

Bro, Jiji and SV carried CLG through their 1 year slump. Now half of CLG is gone.

WHY SV... COULD'VE AT LEAST BROUGHT JIJI WITH YOU... QQ

Imho Hotshot as a jungler is not that bad. For sure if you looked at his match against TSM evo, he needs to improve a lot, but hey it was his first game as a jungler for a competitive play. The good point is, hotshot is good at playing tanks and some tank works quite better as jungler than top. (IE : Maokai, Nautilus, Mundo, etc) As a great tank player if he works on his weakness it should be ok.

He should try to get more dragon control, and protect better his buffs. Once he ll get used to that he ll be pretty decent.

SV was the best jungler in the world, but that doesn't say much about junglers...
Bad calls, bad strats, stuborn as hell, bad mechanics, bad communication.

Voyboy is the best top solo in NA, but not by much, HSGG is there, with a diff. of a lesser champ pool.
If only HSGG stops trolling and trains the jungle and Chauster grew some balls and make the calls, If only da jijiking became more vocal in lane and DL graduate from chauster bot lane school. Srry for bad english.

after this video I realize something: It was funny to watch CLG as a strong team even if they lose or win the game.
