Competitive Ruling: Min “Mimic” Ju-Sung

As part of the recruitment process players a subject to behaviour checks by Riot Oceania. Min “Mimic” Ju-Sung was shown to have exhibited poor behaviour in Solo Queue while in Korea and will receive a suspension of 2 weeks. We accept Riot’s ruling and have made plans to replace Mimic for the first 2 weeks of the OPL. We do not condone toxic behaviour in any game and will be supporting Mimic to ensure that he learns from this experience and is able to play the rest of the 2018 competitive year with the club.   We would like to take this moment to thank Evan “Ceres” Mascarenhas for subbing in during Mimic’s suspension. A special thanks also to OCS team Crimson Gaming for loaning him to us during this period.

Legacy Lands in Korea

Ahead of the 2018 competitive year our League of Legends team and coach Luchio Park will be heading to Korea to engage in a three week boot camp. This will mark the first opportunity for the new roster to link up with their Korean top laner Min “Mimic” Ju-sung and work together as a complete unit. The Korean competitive matchmaking scene is considered the most difficult of every region, unsurprising considering their resounding success at a professional level. Therefore, the team plans to use the time in Korea honing in on their individual skills by playing solo que, to ensure their mechanics are at an elite standard. Legacy’s head of Esports Tim Wendel is excited to see the results of the boot camp. “We went earlier this year in April for two weeks and it was an incredible experience. We saw huge improvements in that period of time and for…

Mimic Joins Legacy

Legacy Esports would like to welcome new Top Laner Min Ju-Sung to the League of Legends roster. Known as ‘Mimic’, he recently played in Europe and has previously been a sub for South Korean team, KT Rolster. Head of Esports Tim Wendel is enthusiastic about the move, saying Mimic brings a wealth of experience. “Each region tends to have its own unique style and Mimic will give us an edge over our rivals because of the time has spent in foreign competitions,” Wendel said. Mimic competes at the challenger level in Korea, which is arguably the strongest of the regions. He will link up with his team mates in Seoul when they head to South Korea for an upcoming bootcamp. “Spending time in Korea will provide the team with a high level of competition with which to hone their skills before the split begins,” Wendel said. “It will also give…

Thank you, Tally.

Legacy Esports would like to thank the outgoing James ‘Tally’ Shute for his contribution to its League of Legends team. Tally joined the team in late 2014 and has played every Oceanic Pro League split, with his versatility allowing him to play Top Lane and ADC. He leaves as the team’s second-longest serving player and Head of Esports Tim Wendel congratulated him on his career to date. “James has been a great player for Legacy over the last three years and a close personal friend of mine. We wish him all the best in 2018” Wendel said.  

Raid and Decoy join Legacy

An exciting young bot lane duo of Julian ‘Raid’ Skordos and Daniel ‘Decoy’ Ealam have joined Legacy Esports for 2018. Raid played with Pro League team Abyss Esports this year as their ADC and the 20-year-old looks set to become a top player in the region. Tim Wendel said the arrival of both players was part of an exciting phase in Legacy’s evolution. “Raid has plenty of potential and we have great confidence in the team we are assembling for 2018,” Wendel said. With him comes Decoy, a high ELO support player from the Challenger Series. “These two players have a lot of chemistry, which is very important for a bot lane duo to be successful,” Wendel said. “We will spend some time developing Decoy and I am sure he will become a key playmaker at the Pro League level.” Raid and Decoy are both pending Riot approval.

Goodbye Lost, Cupcake.

Legacy Esports has lost its ADC to a United States powerhouse in what is a first for the Oceanic Pro League. Lawrence ‘Lost’ Hui will join Echo Fox’s 10 man roster after impressing at its boot camp in October. Negotiations between Legacy and Echo Fox have progressed smoothly and Lost will depart for the United States almost immediately. Legacy Head of Esports Tim Wendel said the way in which Lost had risen to prominence is a credit to his attitude and work ethic. “He joined the team this year and really went from relative obscurity to being arguably the best ADC in the region,” Wendel said. “We loved working with him and it will be sad to see him go but on the other hand, Legacy Esports promotes its players to play internationally, that’s our expectation. It is a great opportunity for him to push himself as a player and…

Sybol brings leadership to Legacy

  Legacy Esports has moved to replace its outgoing captain by securing Lachlan ‘Sybol’ Civil. He is a veteran Oceanic Jungler and brings a wealth of experience and leadership which will help offset the loss of Tim ‘Carbon’ Wendel, who has moved into administrative role with the team. Sybol has been playing League of Legends competitively since 2014 when he joined team Unlimited but most recently featured for Avant Garde. Wendel said Sybol possessed vast knowledge of the game. “We believe he will make a huge impact, not only mechanically as a player, but as a mentor to the less experienced guys in the team,” Wendel said. “It will be exciting to see what he can do from the jungle especially his ability to create space for the team and put pressure on enemy carries throughout the early game.” Sybol is still pending approval from Riot. Long time OPL jungle sub…

His re-signing with Legacy for 2018 will allow him to establish his reputation as a premiere mid-laner in the national competition. Head of Esports Tim Wendel said Claire was an important signing when considering the balance of the League of Legends team. “His preferences of champion allow him to be a rock in the mid lane and really open up the game for our carries to shine,” Wendel said. “With Claire’s experience and our yet to be announced talented roster lineup, I have no doubt there will some great synergy in the team especially after our boot camp…

His fluency in korean and extensive international knowledge will provide a keen advantage for Legacy in 2018.
