Tanner Damonte, known as “Damonte,” is a 23-year-old American League Of Legends player who has recently joined Counter Logic Gaming. Previously, he had been playing for 100 Thieves.

Damonte is a really talented player, but he has lots of ups and downs in the games. The inconsistency problem that he has made him also dropped by 100 Thieves, which also made him announce his retirement.

However, his retirement didn’t last long because Counter Logic Gaming agreed with Damonte about two months after announcing his retirement as they parted ways with Eugene “Pobelter” Park.

This decision came up after Counter Logic Gaming had devastating results in the LCS even though they looked promising on paper featuring such players as Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen and Finn “Finn” Wiestål.

In week 7 of LCS Summer 2021, Damonte played his debut match with Counter Logic Gaming, but they couldn’t get any victory against both Cloud9, Team Liquid, and Immortals, who seemed like losing in the match.

After making his debut, Damonte spoke in a recent interview with Inven Global and talked about his decision to join Counter Logic Gaming, his friendship with Matthew “Akaadian” Higginbotham, and many more.

In the conversation, Damonte revealed that the deal between him and Counter Logic Gaming was so fast that they signed the contract close to their first day of scrims. By showing how quick the deal was, Damonte revealed how desperate Counter Logic Gaming was to change the roster for this split.

Interviewer asked:

“What was Akaadian’s reaction when you told him you would be returning to the LCS?”

Damonte replied:

“Honestly, my signing with CLG was so fast and out of nowhere that I only told him the night before it was announced. That’s basically when anyone close to me was finding out, even my parents, because the contract was signed that close to our first day of scrims.

Akaadian was definitely one of the first people to know, and he didn’t tell anyone, thank God.”

Later in the conversation, Damonte also talked about what he can bring to the table in order to win games as well as what they are aiming to do in the upcoming match against Golden Guardians.
