Following the departure of multiple players, SEA squad Clutch Gamers restructures lineup.
Clutch Gamers have had a bit of a rough time keeping its roster together so far this season. Of the original roster that started the season under the Clutch Gamers banner, only Kenneth “Flysolo” Coloma remains on the roster. The team added Vladimir “Chappie” Kuzmenko back in November, but lost Jun “Bokerino” Kanehara, Jio “Jeyo” Madayag, Marvin “Boombacs” Rushton, Armel Paul “Armel”Tabios, and Kim “Velo” Tae-Sung over the course of the following months. With that much instability in the lineup this season, the organization was in desperate need of players to fill its multiple vacant roster slots. In order to fill those open slots, Clutch Gamers have added Anas “MagE-” Hirzallah, Kharis “SkyLark” Zafeiriou, and Mohammad “AfrOmoush” Abu Al Eis to the roster.
MagE- will be taking over the Mid-laning duties for the Clutch Gamers lineup. While he hasn’t been in the professional scene for too long, MagE- has earned some experience within the European region with Elements Pro Gaming and No Diggity in 2017. The Jordanian player has earned notoriety for his play within leagues such as the FPL, and at the time of writing is the 35th ranked player in the European region.
SkyLark joins the Clutch Gamers lineup as the team’s new offlaner, having most recently served as a member of the Ad Finem/mousesports roster. The Greek player has spent the entirety of his career within the European region so far, but the transition into the Southeast Asian scene will hopefully be a smooth one for him. SkyLark brings a level of LAN experience that most other members of the new Clutch Gamers lineup are lacking, and the organization is hoping that his experience will help the team achieve success on the Pro Circuit.
AfrOmoush will be moving from one SEA squad to another, as the Support player was a member of the WarriorsGaming.Unity lineup prior to being acquired by Clutch Gamers. The Jordanian player was unable to find much success on the Pro Circuit with his previous squad, but did manage to earn some international experience with the team through third party events such as the joinDOTA League Season 11 Asia and the ROG MASTERS 2017.

- Vladimir “Chappie” Kuzmenko (Carry)
- Anas “MagE-” Hirzallah (Mid)
- Kharis “SkyLark” Zafeiriou (Offlane)
