MAD Lions bench Bubzkji - Report
The move for roster changes comes in the aftermath of MAD Lions' last-place elimination in the cs_summit 6 Europe Regional Qualifier, which saw the Danish side go out in the round of 16 after a shocking loss to PACT.
As a result, the Asger "AcilioN" Larsen-led team still has yet to make an entry in the European portion of the Regional Major Ranking. With just one more chance left to earn points, the early exit puts MAD Lions in a tough spot in their campaign to reach at least a top-11 placing in the standings and receive an invitation to ESL One Rio.
It's unclear what the reason for Bubzkji's benching is. However it is unlikely to be performance-based as the 21-year-old has averaged a 1.17 rating as the team's highest-rated player over the course of the last three months, during which he helped them retain a spot just outside of the top-ten.
Most notably, the star rifler was a key figure in MAD Lions' run at Flashpoint 1, a tournament the Danes managed to win despite having just brought in a new in-game leader, AcilioN, in another surprising move that ousted Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen from the roster.
