hazed to fill in for CLG in ESL One NY qualifier

James "hazed" Cobb will play for CLG in the North American closed qualifier for ESL One New York, the organisation has announced.

The 28-year-old will be filling in for Kenneth "koosta" Suen, who, according to CLG, is unable to compete in the qualifier due to "family reasons".

James "hazed" Cobb is currently assessing his options after leaving OpTic earlier this month. Initially hired as a coach, he was moved to the starting line-up following Jason "jasonR" Ruchelski's departure, attending the ECS Season 3 finals, the PGL Major Krakow Main Qualifier and ESL One Cologne with the team.

hazed to play for CLG again

He is no stranger to CLG, having donned the organisation's colours for nearly two years, during which the team most notably reached the playoffs of the MLG Columbus Major.

Eight teams will take part in the ESL One New York qualifier, which will take place this weekend, with the winner booking their spot at the $250,000 event.

CLG will compete in the qualifier with the following roster:

United States Stephen "reltuC" Cutler
United States Ethan "Ethan" Arnold
Canada Pujan "FNS" Mehta
Australia Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland
United States James "hazed" Cobb (stand-in)

well at least they wont make shitty mistakes with bomb defusals now as hazed has way more experience.
2017-08-17 22:38
Lol if you think they are a better team with hazed you are absolutely clueless.
2017-08-17 22:43
I didn't say that they'll be better with hazed. I said that they're not gonna make DUMB mistakes more likely anyway.
2017-08-17 22:45
You're a dumb mistake that your mom should have swallowed. Get a clue, kid.
