The European Dota 2 team Absolute Legends has just announced that they will replace Vigoss with SexyBamboe. aL's manager Samo cites that lack of communication and professionalism by Vigoss are the main reasons behind this move.
Instability strikes aL once again, as they are forced to kick out Vigoss
, the last Russian remaining in the team. Although this seems like aL just can't stay as a stable five, the team manager assures in his very straightforward statement that action needed to be taken for the sakes of the team. He also announces that Absolute Legends will be bootcamping before DreamHack Winter, starting tomorrow.
Replacing Vigoss will be SexyBamboe
from Team Zero. Although definitely a great addition to aL, this leaves Zero in turmoil; they are left with four players after just a week playing as five. It is currently unknown who will fill the void left by SexyBamboe or if they will stay together at all.
Statement from Samo, aL's manager:
It's quite ordinary to say that I'm saddened by a change in our line-up but this time I'm actually glad. After working with Vigoss for this small period of maybe 2 months, I found him not that easy to deal with. We have provided him with a PC capable of streaming (Supposedly loaned) so he can stream benefiting the both of us but he rarely did so. However, that's just the crust of the problems.
I spectate and listen to just about every match our team plays be it official or a scrim and his level of communication during the matches, despite being perfectly capable of speaking English, is zero. The lack of communication combined with the lack of professionalism has forced us to replace him for the sake of the team. The reason I'm being a bit too straightforward is because I believe people deserve to know why we might replace players, especially when it's the second time in 2 months.
I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours, maybe he only has such issues with English speaking teams.
We may have lost a great player but like they say one door closes and another one opens. I'm very happy to welcome Bamboe to aL, a rather fun and interactive personality whom I've known for a while now over IRC.
Bamboe plays very aggressively similar to our current line-up and his level of communication should improve our co-ordination by 10 folds.
I truly believe with this line-up we should reach the stable state we've been trying to. Our team will bootcamp with all 5 players starting the 14th for DreamHack where we hope to show the scene what we're capable of!
SexyBamboe, aL's latest recruit, wanted to say the following:
It's sad to have to leave some of the best team-mates and friends I've worked with and I truly wish them all the best, but sometimes you have to make changes as new oppurtunities arise.
I'll be moving to aL and reunite with my former teammate comewithme, where i hope to have a long lasting coalition. Shoutout to my new sponsors Razer, Twitch.tv, AbsoluteEnergy, Orcbite, Specialtech and BigPoint.
