Imperial end Lobanjica trial; hAdji to stand in
Four days ago, Imperial announced that they would be trialing Lobanjica and Eimantas "pounh" Lazickas, with the duo replacing Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend and Jesper "TENZKI" Plougmann. With the new roster, Imperial beat Sprout and Epsilon to make it to the playoffs of the StarSeries i-League Season 6 qualifier.
"Today the team have decided to stop playing with Lobanjica, despite the good results in StarSeries so far. The reasoning behind this is to protect the organization and more importantly, our sponsors.
"The players would like to thank Loba for his efforts but are making this decision for their future going forward. We will continue to play with pounh and carry on searching for the final piece to our puzzle.
"As always, thank you to our fans who remain loyal and understanding of our situation." - Imperial
