re: Official League of Legends Thread
Man, C9 and bold moves every offseason. Licorice slumped a bit but he is still maybe the most valuable NA top. I wonder if TL will maybe jump on that IF they don't bring back Impact (rumor Impact is leaving). FlyQuest would be an amazing fit as well.

NA absorbing OPL immediately having an effect, Fudge now gets starting shot as NA resident.

Reignover is a gamble too, but I think everyone thought he'd be a good coach when his career was over.

Flyquest would be a great fit for Licorice. Would love to see that...

Rumor that BrokenBlade is off TSM and that they are in talks with both Impact and Licorice, and that TSM is importing duo bot lane.

re: Official League of Legends Thread
My money is on DL retiring and being a streamer for TSM if they get a new bot lane.

I don't see him playing anywhere else and I think I remembering him resigning with TSM for 2021.

The 5 major teams I see vying for a worlds spot next year are set at bot lane. TL - Tactical, C9 - Zven, GGS - FBI, FQ - Turtle, and TSM. I mean I guess I could see him going to FQ but I just don't buy it. I think he's done.

Rumor I see floating around is TSM is going after impact hard because they're importing a Korean bot lane.

I personally would be fine running everything back except promoting Treatz. Give that botlane some time to get some synergy. Them getting a whole bot lane and not just importing support tells me he just doesn't want to go through a new support again. (If rumors turn out to be true.)

re: Official League of Legends Thread
Re: BrokenBlade, I think he's a good/great player and a good team personality, but he just requires too many resources.

I still wouldn't mind having him on the team but I can see a rational reason why they would want to look elsewhere.

I'd rather have Licorice I think than Impact. Nothing against Impact he is consistently solid he just can't carry and is on the downswing of his career.

TL may be importing a top, they're one of the teams talking with Alphari.

So that would mean finding an NA or OCE jungle.

As a pure player, probably so. Although if they are trying to get someone to speak with a Korean botlane that would be ideal. That's what I was getting at. I think Licorice ends up somewhere else though. TL/FQ/EG are my hunches for him.

Alphari


As I've said before in this thread I don't watch much league outside of NA, is this guy worth the hype? Seen his name thrown around a lot in the off season rumors.

Dropping Broxah worth an import top you think? I didn't think he played that bad and he's a good team oriented guy with a great attitude. I would want him to represent my team for sure.

re: Official League of Legends Thread
I'm not sure on Alphari, I don't watch enough EU and his team was bad. All I hear is the hype as well so I guess worth a shot?

Well the current rumor is Santorin to TL.

I’ve watched a good bit of EU. Alphari is solid, but don’t think he is worth an import slot.

I wonder how many top laners truely dominate a game at the worlds level.

Next to none as long as they hold their own. Those that do dominate often get timely help from either jungle or mid in the early game.

My point is, don’t waste an import slot on top.

Imports should be saved for adc, mid or jungle. And watching worlds, I am not sure about mid.

Thoughts?

Nothing new there, TL tried to move on from Jensen last year. Last second deal to bring him back.

Licorice/Impact
Santorin

Just import Chovy. I think he was only on a one year deal with DRX

re: Official League of Legends Thread
Wasn't Chovy the one that said he was going to LPL?

Either way, importing a new mid is a huge deal and shakeup. Gotta nail it, you absolutely cannot have a weak mid at Worlds and expect to have any kind of success.

Didn't know that.

Jiizuke is available. He would love to take up that juicy import slot.

Yeah, mixed about it now after Jensen had a great year and worlds. You better make damn sure you're really improving at that spot to give up a high end resident.

Impact to TSM is probably the most heavily rumored thing in this offseason.

re: Official League of Legends Thread
Travis rumor video:

TL Alphari deal is very likely, rumored 7 figure deal. Santorin jungle. IF Alphari and Santorin come to TL, he hears Jensen will likely stay with TL. Says Jensen is a hot commodity right now.

Also says that FlyQuest appears to be blowing up the roster so makes sense with Santorin to TL.


TSM: BB and Bio out. TSM talked to Upset but didn't get anywhere. Talking to Impact and Licorice still for top lane.

GGS: Also talking to Licorice.

100T: Trying to buy out FBI from GGS.

DIG: Sneaky already done deal, Dardoch re-signed. Hauntzer likely.

C9: Nisqy no longer guaranteed starting.

EG: Bang and coach out.

CLG: Hauntzer also possible, Deftly adc.
