Mad “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen has found his new team in the form of Counter Logic Gaming, having left Team Liquid.
Having spent 2020 at Team Liquid after signing from Fnatic, Broxah is set to extend his stay in North American by signing for Counter Logic Gaming. Broxah left Team Liquid after he was replaced by Lucas “Santorin” Tao Kilmer Larsen, Broxah, left after just one year with the side having joined from Fnatic in 2019. It hasn’t been a great year for Broxah, having to adjust to a new region, US visa issues, and a global pandemic.
Broxah is set to join up with fellow European player Finn “Finn” Wiestal, with Finn set to join as soon as possible. He’ll also play alongside “Eugene” Pobelter” Park and Trevor “Stixxay” Hayes. CLG has a number of players still under contract, so they’ll be needing to do a lot of work to move on some of the unwanted players.
Broxah had a difficult time at Team Liquid in 2020, with most noting his passive style working against Team Liquid’s style. Whether or not that changes in 2021 with the item changes is yet to be seen, though if Broxah can show some of the form he had on Fnatic he could have a second swing at LCS glory.
CLG might not be the best side for Broxah, though a return to Europe was always unlikely due to the jungle role seemingly locked in across the entire LEC.
