As Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng takes time off from competitive League of Legends to focus on his personal life, former TSM AD carry, Jason “WildTurtle” Tran, will be substituting for the team at IEM Oakland from November 19-20, 2016, sources say. After barely failing to qualify for the world championship with Immortals, it is said that WildTurtle will likely part ways with the organization and search for future opportunities elsewhere. Although his contract with Immortals expired at the end of October, this does not hold big implications that WildTurtle will be rejoining the TSM squad for the upcoming spring LCS season. After IEM Oakland, WildTurtle plans to fly to South Korea to train his skills and try out for various teams, including Team Dignitas.
The last time TSM asked WildTurtle to fill the shoes of their AD carry position, he delivered with a pentakill against compLexity Gaming. Make sure you tune in next weekend to find out if he can step up for his former team once again.
