Counter Logic Gaming substitute mid laner Jae-Hyun "Huhi" Choi will start at jungle for the 2015 World Championship due to Jake "Xmithie" Puchero's VISA issues.

According to Counter Logic Gaming, Xmithie will be unable to make the trip to Europe, and therefore they will call upon Huhi to fill the vacant jungle role. Huhi joined the team at the start of the summer season to compete with Eugene "Pobelter" Park for the mid lane role, but ultimately never played an LCS game. He has been training with the team ever since, and has now received his first call to action.

Counter Logic Gaming is currently in Korea bootcamping for the upcoming Worlds, and stated that they have the proper systems in place to make the transition as smooth as possible.

"A vast network supports Huhi in his transition to jungle," Counter Logic Gaming posted on their website. "This includes Xmithie himself, our coaching staff, a Korean support staff, and several professional junglers."

The news comes on the heels of Riot's announcement of the full list of rosters for the 2015 World Championship. At the time, Xmithie was listed as a starter, and Huhi a substitute for mid lane.
