William "Meteos" Hartman will act as a substitute in Phoenix1's Week 5 NA LCS matches, replacing Rami "Inori" Charagh, who is returning home "to take care of a personal matter."

The announcement, made on P1's Facebook page, confirmed that Meteos would sub as P1's jungler in their matches against both Team EnVyUs and Cloud9, and that Inori "cannot participate in this weekend’s matches." Meteos was listed as a substitute for Cloud9 before the announcement.

Phoenix1 has a 4-4 record heading into Week 5. Cloud9, meanwhile, is undefeated with an 8-0 record. Their starting jungler, Juan "Contractz" Arturo Garcia, was a member of the Cloud9 Challenger roster whose LCS spot — and four other player contracts — were sold to FlyQuest.
