This new team will feature star players from all over Europe, the full line-up will be:
Mike 'Wickd' Petersen
Henrik 'Froggen' Hansen
Peter 'Yellowpete' Wüppen
Mitch 'Krepo' Voorspoels
Stephen 'Snoopeh' Ellis
This team will see players leaving several top EU teams to form the new CLG.eu. CLG will also be entering a partnership with AbsoluteLegends, the CLG.eu team will also represent the gaming community over at AbsoluteLegends.
Stephen 'Snoopeh' Ellis would like to release this statement on his departure:
I am good friends with everyone in the team and this bond was further strengthened from attending offline events and I'd like to say that every one of them have positively affected me and my future and I cannot thank them enough for being a friend and a team mate over the past 4 months. I know they will go from strength to strength as they are committed, therefore I'm positive they can continue to be successful and I wish them the best of luck in the future.
This decision wasn't one which I have taken lightly and it is with a heavy heart I leave SK Gaming, however looking at the competitive season in 2012 I needed to ensure I as a team had like minded, level headed personalities which were at the top of their game. I will be joining Counter Logic Gaming's European Team (CLG.eu) with yellowpete (AD Carry), Krepo (Support) both former players which I had the pleasure of being in laGG with - as well as Wickd the former Top Solo for SK Gaming and Froggen (AP). I look forward to the future with my new team and we are ready to fully embrace season 2.
I especially would like to thank fans for their continued support, you are making it possible for me to pursue gaming in the manner that I am and I hope you can appreciate that this decision was not an easy one, but an opportunity that I have to grasp."
SK.LoL will now need to find a replacement Jungler in addition to their missing top laner.
