Team by Vanille 2 years, 11 months ago


Two contradictory chat logs occurring within minutes of each other have left  Carlos “ocelote” Rodríguez Santiago exposed and  Joey “YoungBuck” Steltenpool without a team. What started with YoungBuck joining the  SK Gaming roster a few weeks ago has escalated into a mudslinging fiasco that leaves fans questioning the team’s integrity and their ability to compete in this season’s finals.

Things were looking bright for YoungBuck when he first joined  SK Gaming. They welcomed him to the family and expressed hopes that his addition would mark the start of “a new era for SK Gaming”. 
YoungBuck himself expressed his gratitude in the official statement
I'm honored to become part of a great team with a rich history of achievements in E-sports.
I look forward to playing at the highest level once again and I'm very confident that together we can achieve the greatness that SK is known for.
Despite this, yesterday YoungBuck’s status update on Facebook confirmed that Ocelote had kicked him from the SK Gaming team. He also revealed that he believes he was removed from the team because “Kevin got bored of playing AD” and wanted to move back to top lane. 
A fan’s response to YoungBuck’s update has generated a lot of heat
I dont see SK gaming, kev1n or Ocelote winning ever again. "Being bored" shouldnt make you erase all the proggress you've made in such a little time … I feel like he has chosen the path to become a proffesional streamer not a competing proffesional player.
The faith in SK Gaming’s League of Legends team has become slim, with former team member,  Adrian “Candy Panda” Wübbelmann, agreeing that ocelote is more of an entertainer then a proplayer and SivHD suggesting ocelote leave SK, take the entertainer route, and try to remain in tournaments on the side. Both defend ocelote as a man “trying to support his family” and a “really cool guy”, but further accusations have revealed integrity issues. A discussion between  Kevin “kev1n” Rubiszewski and ocelote reveals that just a little over one week after YoungBuck was welcomed to the team they decided remove him. On top of this, YoungBuck’s chat log shows that while kev1n and ocelote were speaking of removing him from the roster YoungBuck was simultaneously being reassured that ocelote was going to try to keep him on the team.
Youngbuck himself has tried to do away with rumors started by ocelote

Ocelote has mentioned that I never really was with SK and was just in a testing fase, however that is very untrue 

All the drama has left SK Gaming’s League of legends team with three team members;  Carlos "ocelote" Rodriguez,  Patrick "Nyph" Funke, and  Kevin "kev1n" Rubiszewski. With the Season 2 Finals coming up so soon, will SK Gaming be able to pull it together in time?

Ocelote just throws his toys out of the pram when things don't go his way or people say anything about him. I personally don't look at SK as a threat in any tournament they are in.

SK is making it no where i dont wanna sound negative but i think Oce is the one with the problem no one from The Original SK is in that team besides Oce and Nyph and even that i think Nyph wasnt there from the start Oce has been kicking everyone out that just says alot about him. I remember back when Snoopeh and Wickd where in SK but nope they left to Oce is doing something wrong and well if he thinks its a good idea Best of Luck to him

I am a big sk fan. I just don't see them getting anywhere anytime soon.

Keep talking, bitches. Oce is a leader and he does what he thinks is best for the buisness and team. For example, Elementz did good on the support-role for CLG.NA, but to make the team stronger, Hotshot kicked him out and got Doublelift in. Even if Ocelot doesnt like to do it, he is forced to

SK won't get anywhere as long as Oce is leading the team, sadly. Streaming every scrim, kicking everyone that doesnt agree with him.. It's just....silly

I think SK has been very much doomed for some time now. While still a much better player than the average joe, Ocelote is nowhere near good enough to play as a professional. And sadly, he's the team captain of SK, so he's just going to keep messing things up for the team and blame everybody else afterwards.
