Bishop should be able to help Xepher and Selly get up to par language wise considering he was noted as having very good English. Supposedly both of them are incredible players but weren't really able to get a shot after the Geguri scandal
I'm still a bit confused as to why ryb was dropped and Gods would be filling his role considering how good he is mechanically but KnOxXx also gave up his spot on Lucio to go to main tank somewhat recently as well. Only time will tell if moving Gods to main tank will pay off for them
Also can someone tell me about the Geguri scandal? I know it has to do with a cheating girl right? How was this guy involved.
From the little that I know about Xepher and Selly's involvement in the event itself, they seemed to just be in the wrong place at the wrong time, which certainly affected how sponsors valued them
Edit: a google search of the whole thing basically led to this:
- Geguri was really good at Zarya. Like REALLY good. One of the best (if not the best) in Korea. Two players from another team (ELTA and Strobe from Dizziness) brought forth claims that she was using some sort of cheating program.
- ELTA and Strobe vow that if Geguri is not found using any cheats, they would quit playing.
- Blizzard Korea launches an investigation and she's found to be innocent after a showcase of her skill. Keep in mind she is in her teens when all of this is happening so the social pressure had to be incredibly overwhelming
- The two pros that vowed to exit the game if she was found guilty follow through with their words, and they did in fact exit the scene
