GamerLegion bench Adam9130, dobbo
The British duo has been removed from the active roster to "help progress the team out of a period of stagnation".
GamerLegion have benched in-game leader Adam "Adam9130" Ahmad and most recent addition William "dobbo" Dobson, the organization has announced. The duo leaves the active roster following a series of middling results in the first quarter of 2021.
"After much consideration we have made the decision to bench both Adam and Dobbo from our active lineup, effective immediately," the team's coach, Ashley "ash" Battye, has stated. "The moves are being made to help progress the team out of a period of stagnation, as we feel the core of the roster has the potential to compete at a much higher level in the not so distant future."
The team currently ranked 56th in the world has lacked good showings as of late, as they most recently placed 11th in ESEA Premier Season 36, escaping the relegation process ahead of the next season, and went out of Shadow League Season 1, Snow Sweet Snow 1, and the Pinnacle Cup early.
Adam9130 joined the team last July alongside Sean "eraa" Knutsson, William "mezii" Merriman, and Patrik "Zero" Žúdel as part of an extensive revamp of the GamerLegion roster. dobbo arrived three months later after being transferred from KPI, replacing mezii following the 22-year-old's signing with Cloud9.
With the British duo out of the active roster, GamerLegion are down to just three players:
