After a 7-4 start to the North American division, of the ESL ESEA Proleague, Counter Logic Gaming have just announced on their blog that Josh "jdm64" Marzano will be joining their ranks after previously impressing with the likes of SKDC. He will be rejoining a roster that represented the infamous team NetCode Guides at the Season 16 ESEA LAN finals.
CLG General Manager MaTTcom gave the following statement on their blog regarding the move:
The addition of Josh as the 5th and final member of our CS:GO squad provides a solid foundation for the team to grow into the kind of top tier athletes that we believe they can be. Given his previous history with the team they will, out the gate, have an excellent rapport that we can utilize to enhance communications and planning. Josh is hungry and ready to do what it takes to be the kind of team player CLG needs and we are excited to have him competing for us.
JDM himself released the following Vlog on Counter Logic Gaming's youtube channel :
CLG's breakout event was at MLG X Games Aspen where they managed to upset the eventual champions LDLC 16-14 in the group stage. However, since then their results were lackluster with a 2-0 defeat to Mousesports and Fnatic at the ESEA Season 18 LAN finals in Dallas.
Will jdm64 be the missing ingredient that CLG have been searching for?
CLG will little time to practice as they have their debut match tonight against Cloud9 tonight in the ESL ESEA Proleague that you can watch at 8:00pm EST on ESEATV.
Representing CLG now are: Josh 'jdm64'Marzano Stephen 'Cutler' Cutler Pujan 'FNS Mehta James 'hazed' Cobb Tarik 'tarik' Celik
