dobbo completes GamerLegion roster

The European squad found their replacement for William "⁠mezii⁠" Merriman in the former KPI youngster.

The 17-year-old Brit rounds out GamerLegion's lineup after his compatriot and the team's star player, mezii, was bought out by Cloud9 in the middle of September and became the second piece of the American organization's new, so far incomplete "Colossus" roster.

William "⁠dobbo⁠" Dobson is a widely inexperienced player. He only emerged on the international scene in the middle of 2020 with Orgles5 before he got signed by KPI in August to form a new multinational squad under the Spanish organization.

dobbo reunites with Adam9130 in GamerLegion

Although he has big shoes to fill in the position that was until earlier this month occupied by the team's best performer, GamerLegion have set the expectations low in the announcement of the new signing, stating that dobbo's "skills are still developing and he might have to learn a great deal."

dobbo himself echoed those sentiments in a small interview conducted by the organization, in which he shared his wish to prove himself at the higher level of play he is entering with the new team.

"As for goals with GamerLegion, I am hoping to break into the top 40/30 rankings and to keep going as far as possible, always wanting more and more," he said. "As for personal goals, I want to prove myself at this level and grow as both as a person and player over the time in the team, and hopefully become the best player that I can be."

dobbo rounds out the roster in the middle of their campaign in ESEA MDL Season 35, where they are currently sitting in sixth place with a 6-6 record and hope to retain a spot in the top-eight ahead of the playoffs.

GamerLegion's roster is:

Sweden Alfred "⁠RuStY⁠" Karlsson
Slovakia Patrik "⁠Zero⁠" Žúdel
Sweden Sean "⁠eraa⁠" Knutsson
United Kingdom Adam "⁠Adam9130⁠" Ahmad
United Kingdom William "⁠dobbo⁠" Dobson

United Kingdom Ashley "⁠ashhh⁠" Battye (coach)

play more or less the same positions on CT-side as Mezii, and similarly to Adam on t-side. From what I've heard they will switch roles on T-side, so it will work out well for them, individually. His HLTV stats are weird, but he is actually good with utility and comms.

Mezii was a diamond in the rough. Today Mezii had 1.30 KD in the match they lost (Mezii, Alex, W0xic, Mistou and Kassad). Dobbo is a similar player but don't have the same top skills. But with the other changes done in approach from the roster makes this more sensible than the HLTV and ESEA stats say

They were pugging in a Open Qualifier. The weird thing is that after they won first round, Floppy came into their Teamspeak and started talking strats and ideas with them. So it looked more or less like he wasn't invited to play with them

Maybe, but he sounded clear on the TS. But it is possible. Their team was called Team Serbia, so I thought they were at Bootcamp already. But then I wonder if it could be that he was bringing his own Computer and it hadn't been delivered yet

You can see that by 1) checking stream, highlights and other he uploads. 2) Watch a demo and see how his team reacts when he see or hear something. 3) I talked to people
