Signs with TSM Academy
December 18, 2017
Ablazeolive has joined Team SoloMid's Academy team, the organization announced Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Without much competitive experience at the challenger level, Ablazeolive is an outlier to the new TSM Academy lineup. Although he has proven his individual skill time and again with multiple impressive tournament showings, as well as in the challenger series itself, he does not have as much experience as the rest of the lineup. Despite this, the organization picked him during the NA Scouting Grounds as the seventh pick of the Draft. His impressive mechanical skill is sure to make a strong addition to the team's lineup.
Joins TSM's Academy team
December 18, 2017
Grig has signed with Team SoloMid to compete on the Academy team, the organization announced Sunday.
ANALYSIS
After playing under the Echo Fox organization for the better part of the last year, Grig has left the organization and signed with TSM to compete on the organizations Academy team. With strong performances in both the challenger scene as well as during his LCS debut with Echo Fox, his impressive individual skill will be a strong addition to the team's roster.
Joins TSM Academy
December 18, 2017
Brandini has joined Team SoloMid to compete on the team's Academy lineup, the organization announced Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Joining his former teammate Grig, Brandini has signed with TSM to compete on the organization's Academy team. After joining Phoenix1 and competing in several of the team's regular season games, Brandini didn't see any play during the team's promotion Tournament games. Following his time on Phoenix1, Brandini joined Echo Fox playing for the team's challenger series team as well as playing with the LCS lineup. With several strong showings in the LCS itself, Brandini is sure to make up a solid addition to the lineup due to his wealth of experience.
Signs with 100 Thieves
December 17, 2017
Cody Sun has been signed by 100 Thieves, the team announced Saturday.
ANALYSIS
One of the last pieces from the former Immortals squad has finally found a home. While his contract was initially acquired by Team Liquid following the dissolution of the Immortals roster, the team ended up going with Doublelift, which opened the window for Cody Sun to play elsewhere. He now joins Ssumday, Meteos, Ryu, and aphromoo in what could be a strong roster going into 2018. Being paired with one of the best supports in North America can only help Cody Sun continue to grow and rise in the ranks of carries in the NA region.
Signs with Echo Fox
December 8, 2017
Huni will be leading the top lane for Echo Fox in the 2018 season, Jacob Wolf of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
After joining SKT for the 2017 season, the top laner is already on his way back to American soil to join Echo Fox for 2018. While his time with SKT may have been a bit shaky at times, Huni is still a quality top laner and should be a big help for Echo Fox for the new season. He'll be (officially) joined by Dardoch, Fenix, Altec, and Adrian for this new roster going into the newly franchised NA LCS.
Set to join G2
December 6, 2017
Jankos and G2 are finalizing a deal for the 2018 season, ESPN's Jacob Wolf reports.
ANALYSIS
Jankos has become one of the best European junglers during his time with H2K and is a good fit for a rebuilding G2 Esports. Jankos' aggressive style sets up well for his laners and the prospect of him and Perkz on the same team sets a good core for G2 to build around in the new year.
Joins KT Rolster
December 6, 2017
After spending the entirety of 2017 out of the competitive scene, Rush has signed with KT Rolster for the new season.
ANALYSIS
Rush hasn't played in a competitive setting since leaving Cloud9 and North America in 2016. He was one of the best junglers in the NA LCS during his time with TiP and Cloud9, but with KT's team captain and longest serving member, Score, playing the same role, Rush probably won't see a ton of time on the rift.
Chosen by CLG in Scouting Grounds Draft
December 3, 2017
Nintendudex was selected by Counter Logic Gaming with the last pick of the NA Scouting Grounds Draft.
ANALYSIS
CLG must have liked what they saw in Nintendudex, as the team drafted him onto Team Mountain Drake during the event and then picked him up with the last pick of the Draft. The team beefed up their jungle in the offseason with the addition of Reignover, but it can never hurt to have some more talent in the pipeline. This is especially true considering that they have both import slots full with its current roster. Having another NA jungler to put on the roster could potentially free up some space for a new import at some point down the line.
Selected by Cloud9 in Scouting Grounds Draft
December 3, 2017
blaberfish2 was one of three picks from Cloud9 in the NA Scouting Grounds Draft.
ANALYSIS
blaberfish2 is coming to Cloud9 as the ninth pick in the first-ever Scouting Grounds Draft. He was yet another member who was on the Team Ocean Drake team that took home the top spot at the event. Cloud9 is looking to be going all in with the new model of having developmental players in the NA LCS, as the team picked up three of the team 10 players in this draft. Cloud9 isn't necessarily in need of another jungler at this point, but will likely use blaberfish2 to develop some homegrown talent for the future.
Picked up by 100 Thieves in Scouting Grounds
December 3, 2017
Kaizen was the eighth pick of the NA Scouting Grounds Draft and will be joining up with 100 Thieves.
ANALYSIS
Kaizen was one of the four members of Team Ocean Drake that was picked up during the first-ever Scouting Grounds Draft for the NA LCS. The team took home the top prize at the tournament, showing off some great skill in the process. While 100 Thieves has yet to lock down a full roster, they have officially announced Ssumday as their top laner, which means that Kaizen won't be seeing meaningful action anytime soon.
Locked in for TSM from Scouting Grounds
December 3, 2017
Ablazolive was selected by Team SoloMid during the NA Scouting Grounds as the seventh pick of the Draft.
ANALYSIS
While Ablazolive may have been on one of the members of the third place Team Mountain Drake, but managed to come out ahead in the Draft despite the rough finish. He will be headed to a new-look TSM team that will be looking to repeat as NA champions in 2018. This is likely a pick that won't have any relevance on TSM in the NA LCS for quite some time, however. The chances that Bjergsen doesn't suit up on daily basis for this team is basically none. Ablazeolive will have a great mid laner to hopefully learn a thing or two from in the coming months, though.
Selected by Clutch Gaming in Scouting Grounds Draft
December 3, 2017
Palafox was the sixth pick of the NA Scouting Grounds Draft and will be heading to Clutch Gaming for 2018.
ANALYSIS
Palafox was a part of the Ocean Drake squad that took home the top spot at NA Scouting Grounds, and the support clearly caught the eyes of Clutch Gaming with his play. One of the newest entries to the franchised NA LCS, Clutch Gaming is looking to come into the league with a strong roster of both established players and new blood. With Febiven in the mid lane on the main roster, it's not likely that Palafox will see playing time soon, however.
