TSM benches Xpecial!

ImageSome big news appeared in the professional North American LoL scene. With some tweets and stream footage as evidence, it seems that this change is more than just a rumor.

Fan favorite US Team SoloMid had an amazing spring split. They managed to finish second in the playoffs and showed that they should be considered a top team. However, second place probably was not what they aimed for. Subsequently the response to their “bad performance” would be a line-up change. One that that is rather surprising for a lot of people.

Earlier today TSM’s support player US Alex “Xpecial” Chu himself confirmed on his stream that he got benched. According to him it was not a team based decision, but a management decision. Furthermore he stated that his performance wasn’t the reason for the bench and he is not sure whether it will be permanent or not. According to onGamers Alex does not want to comment on the situation and released a tweet in which he seems to regret his statement on stream.

As for the support spot alongside US Wildturtle, there are just some hints. He has been duo queuing a lot with Cloud 9 Tempest’s US Gleebglarbu lately. Even though Gleebglarbu taking over Xpecial's role seems likely, nothing is set in stone. Keep a close watch on Twitter and Reddit for more information.
