CLG Red announce revamped roster
The North American organization has completed its lineup with three new players.
CLG Red has announced three changes to their squad, which now features players from Oceania and Europe for the first time in their history. The new lineup will include Vivienne "BiBiAhn" Quach, Coline "Kaoday" Le Floc'h and Marissa "madss" Dasta, while Kelsie "uhKelsie" Click and Mounira "GooseBreeder" Dobie will be staying on from the previous iteration.
The trio will be taking the place of Juliana "Juli" Tosic, Emma "Emy" Choe and Diane "di^" Tran, with the latter leaving after seven years, having been a part of the team since its inception under the American banner.
The move comes after a 5-6th finish for CLG Red at the biggest event of the season, ESL Impact Valencia 2022. The Viktor "flashie" Tamás Bea-coached team has however kept their status as the best in North America throughout last season, winning several ESL Impact North America Cash Cups and dominating the regional scene.
madss joins the team from non-backed Please Send Help, while BiBiAhn completes the switch from Mindfreak, with both players also competing at the flagship event in Valencia. Kaoday is the final piece of the roster after joining from European team NSC, which has mostly competed in European ESL Impact Cash Cups during the previous season. The 25-year-old averaged a 1.22 rating with her previous team, far above any of her peers with the closest being at 1.03.
The team will be competing in ESL Impact League Season 2, which will begin in roughly one month and culminate in a $123,000 LAN Final in Jönköping in November.
CLG Red's complete active roster is now:
Viktor "flashie" Tamás Bea (coach)
