AD carry Konstantinos "FORG1VENGRE" Tzortziou and support Glenn "Hybrid" Doornenbal are listed on Origen's starting roster on the lolesports' website.

FORG1VENGRE played on H2k-Gaming last split, while Hybrid played with G2 Esports.

The news follows FORG1VEN’s announcement on May 1 in which the Greek AD carry said that while he was given a temporary deferral from his military service, he decided that he’d skip the 2016 EU LCS Summer Split.

A week before that announcement, ESPN’s Jacob Wolf reported that the Greek AD carry would be parting ways with H2K.

FORG1VEN’s departure from H2K comes after a somewhat disappointing spring season. The team finished second during the 2016 Spring Split, which earned them a seed into the semifinals. However, they were taken down by OG in a close 3-2 and lost their third place match 3-2 to Fnatic.

"I am looking forward to play AD for Origen in the upcoming summer split which i consider the greatest challenge of my career," FORG1VEN stated in a press release from H2K. I will put my maximum effort to assist OG on achieving its goals.”

During the 2016 EU LCS Spring Playoffs FORG1VEN’s 3.81 KDA ratio, over 10 games, was largely marred by his poor Kalista games. He played two games on the champion and averaged a 0.8 KDA in those games.

As part of G2, Hybrid had a dominant spring season. G2 finished in first place for both the 2016 Spring Split and the Spring Playoffs, which earned them a spot at the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational as the EU LCS’ representative.

“I’m really happy to be part of Origen. I believe that if the team mashes well together, we will win this split and do really well at Worlds," Hybrid stated in the press release. "I’m super excited to move in to the gaming house and start practicing hard for the summer split!”

G2’s performance at MSI 2016 was not up to par at they finished the group stage with a poor 2-8 record and were eliminated from the group stage, along with TCL Wild Card SuperMassive eSports.

During the 2016 EU LCS Spring Playoffs, Hybrid had a 3.89 average KDA over eight games and his most successful champion was Janna. He played the champion twice, won both games and averaged a monstrous 12.0 KDA.

FORG1VEN posted on Facebook about his upcoming season as part of OG and saying, “hopefully we can get to worlds and i will be putting maximum amount of effort to achieve this.”

OG's top laner Paul "sOAZ" Boyer posted on TwitLonger in response to the community talking about the team's potential dynamic.

"Personally I have nothing but respect for forgiven, he has been trying harder than anyone else since he started competitive league to prove himself on a international stage," he said. "He might not had the best mindset before but we have experienced players to work with him on that.

"I may not be the guy who plays the most soloq and it might sound like a joke to you, but I'm really smart about the game," sOAZ continued. "I will always put teammates needs before mine and care for them, so hopefully this will be the right team for forgiven and we can achieve great things."
