Rumoured Team Liquid Roster Shuffles Could Prove To Be A Stroke Of Genius

It’s no secret that Team Liquid haven’t achieved their desired start to their 2017 NA LCS Spring Split. Having introduced star Jungler Kim “Reignover” Ui-jin to combine with Korean veteran Chae “Piglet” Gwang-jin, it looked on paper as if Liquid would be a top contender for the title. However, after completing their 5th week of LCS fixtures and finding themselves tied for last place, Team Liquid are looking at some possible roster changes to turn their split around.

Liquid’s Co-owner, Steve “Liquid112” Arhancett hosted a Facebook question and answer session to clear up the uncertainty that has been troubling the TL fanbase:

“We’re doing the very best we can with the narrow options…

“Here’s the thing, at the end of this, at the end of this testing week, we may decide that maybe all of these options suck.”

In their current state of desperation, Team Liquid are admittedly open to trying anything – potentially even shifting Piglet into the mid lane! It hasn’t gone unnoticed that Piglet has only been playing mid lane in his solo queue practice, duoing with Reignover. Meanwhile, Liquid’s Support Matt “Matt” Elento has been only duoing with the supposedly rejected Austin “Link” Shin in the bot lane.

Team Liquid fans are generally pleased to see the organization finally make the tough choices required to change their fortunes. It appears to be the end for Mid laner Greyson “Goldenglue” Gilmer:

“We recognize that Goldenglue is underperforming on the roster.

“We understand the damage dealt in teamfights associated with that. We understand that the meta is very different than where our strengths lie as a team.”

Throughout the session, both Team Liquid’s fans and management pitched a number of potential options for revitalising the team.

These are the best five options for turning Team Liquid’s season around:
