Jake “Xmithie” Puchero is a longtime jungler in the NA League of Legends scene. He’s a quiet workhorse for Counter Logic Gaming, always ready to pick the champion or build the items that his team needs. As Doublelift says of his former teammate, "He’s just a really smart player. A lot of the time he'll stop their back line from doing damage and that's all you need. A player that's extremely disruptive. He doesn't get all the farm, he doesn't get all the kills, he doesn't make flashy plays. But he's really consistent and really smart and puts in a lot of work.” And for a team like CLG, which already has carry threats in Darshan and Huhi, a team-oriented jungler is the perfect fit. Xmithie is the hero they need.
Xmithie turned in another admirable year of performances as CLG’s steady hand in 2016. As 2017 rolls around, Xmithie will be game as ever to make sure that CLG is put in the best position to win. His quiet demeanor can sometimes hide his extraordinary game knowledge and decision making skills while on the Rift, but don’t be fooled -- the silent veteran can do it all. Look for Xmithie to be the calm amidst the storm as CLG fights to become North America’s finest.
