Counter Logic Gaming has confirmed that WIldTurtle will be the team’s starting ADC for 2021.
LCS journeyman, Jason “WildTurtle” Tran, is the new starting ADC for CLG for 2021, having spent the past four years at FlyQuest and their Academy roster. WildTurtle will join what is looking like an exciting CLG roster for 2021. He’ll join new signings Mad “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen, Finn “Finn” Wiesta and will link up with Andy “Smoothie” Ta and Eugene “Pobelter” Park.
WildTurtle has spent previous seasons at FlyQuest, TSM, Immortals, and Cloud9 over his long seven-year LCS career thus far. Like a lot of the CLG roster, he might not come with huge fanfare, however, he’s a safe pick and the sort of pickup a roster needs after spending the previous season as arguably the worst side in the LCS.
CLG had a disappointing 2020, finishing the Spring Split in 10th place and Summer Split in 9th. Failing to qualify for playoffs on both occasions. CLG has, however, made improvements, with Finn joining from Rogue and Broxah moving from Team Liquid, the squad has winners. It also has a wealth of LCS experience, which should help them in what looks like a highly competitive 2021 LCS.
Time will tell how this new roster comes together, especially in an LCS that looks more competitive than ever in 2021. CLG will certainly hope and need, to improve on 2020 and at first glance, this roster looks like it will manage it.
