Miami Flamingos release sickLy

The Miami Flamingos have announced that they have parted ways with Juanes "sickLy" Valencia with immediate effect.

In a statement, the Argentinian team explained that the move was caused by the "need to search for an alternative" to their "current game style".

Juanes "sickLy" Valencia had been part of the Miami Flamingos since the organisation signed a Latin American squad, in November 2016. The team have competed in a number of online tournaments, most notably qualifying for ESEA Premier after placing first in the Open division.

sickLy is out of the Miami Flamingos

However, the Miami Flamingos have had a poor start to their Premier campaign, losing their first two matches, one of them by a hefty 16-2 scoreline.

sickLy's replacement will be announced on Monday, the Miami Flamingos added. Regarding the situation of Cristian "Proxure" Rojas, who has returned to Chile as he awaits his visa clearance to return to the United States, the organisation stated that they have not yet had a response from the Immigration Services.

The Miami Flamingos currently have:

Argentina Guillermo "guishorro" Areco
Argentina Jonathan "JonY BoY" Muñoz
Argentina Matias "tutehen" Canale
Chile Cristian "Proxure" Rojas

totally right, only fanboys can think they have a chance to be good. miami flamingos org has a lot of money they just have to kick all the players and bring roster from any team like nrg or misfits. sk did that with luminosity

Marke is actually pretty insane overall, he's got experience playing with some of the best, and he got kicked due to communication issues, so I can see this team improving quite a lot if he comes on board

yes, marke has a lot of experience despite he's young, but he's playing for Vault (Main) now, i really hope they could sign him, it would be a great improve for the team

sickly isnt the problem, the problem is the team, they arent ready to be top team, top teams means alot, and ARG players never played Big events like ESEA in NorthAmerica, completly different than ESEA Brazil, where they usually play... So...bad move from their part.

to be top team, you must have top players, or at least the best ones that are available. in LA it is clear that there are no great players, but I can assure you there are many better than sickly
2017-06-11 07:14
Im not saying sickly is the best, im saying that they did a bad move by changing him, he is the only who has most experience in this case, but its ok, Latam will never progress with org like them, they just played 1 season and removed one of their players..

I do not agree with you, if the players do not see progress in their game it is okay to try someone who plays differently some br team's without experience managed to be top NA in just a few months
