We would like to welcome back Pujan "FNS" Mehta to CLG Counter Strike!
Over the past year, the team has undergone many changes. Although we acquired a lot of young talented players in koosta, nahtE, and Subroza - we lost a lot of the veteran presence in the process. During our search for a replacement for Hazed in the past couple months we looked for a player that had not only in-game leading experiece, but had the qualities of a natural leader outside of the game as well.
During the interview process, I was looking for players with innate leadership qualities. FNS clearly outlined his direction for the team and plan of action during our discussions. He elaborated on how he expects players to act and respond and how he is willing to put in the extra time out of the game. This is especially helpful to the younger talent on the roster. In our discussions he understood the idea of modeling behavior and what it means to lead as an example. I will always invest in hard working people and believe they have a much higher performance ceiling than someone who is not willing to challenge themselves. FNS is a leader that the team needs to help facilitate direction and structure for future success.

The team has been rebuilding and searching for its core identity the past several months. In that time, we have been increasing structure for the team by adding a player development coach, making a coaching change, and searching for a full-time analyst. We want CLG Counter Strike to have a solid foundation for them to rely on. With the addition FNS, we believe that the players will be able to fall into their natural roles and perform at higher level.
Please give FNS a warm welcome back to Counter Logic Gaming!
"I'm very happy to be back on CLG. I know, with time, I can help make this team more dangerous than it was with our original roster. I have full confidence in every player on my team and I love how hungry they are to improve. That makes me genuinely want to give it everything I have to help us become a top tier team."
