Konstantinos "FORG1VEN" Tzortziou has been given a temporary deferral of his military service, H2k-Gaming announced Thursday.
FORG1VEN shared the news that he had been conscripted into the Greek military after H2K’s game against Fnatic last week. At the time he said he had to report to the military immediately. It was understood that Sunday’s game against Giants Gaming would be FORG1VEN’s last game in the LCS.
FORG1VEN joined H2K at the beginning of the season and has played in all of the team's games this split. Prior to joining H2K, he played for Gambit Gaming, SK Gaming and the Copenhagen Wolves. FORG1VEN has a 6.79 KDA this split, and H2K is currently in a three-way tie for first place in the EU LCS, with an 11-3 record.
It isn’t yet known how long FORG1VEN’s deferral will last. Greek conscripts are required to serve nine months if they enter the army, or a year if they join either the navy or air force.
