Legacy’s League of Legends team focused on integrating their new Jungler, Jordan “Only” Middleton, into the team in their preseason ahead of Split Two of the 2018 Oceanic Pro League which gets underway on Friday.
Legacy had an exciting first Split, finishing fourth in the regular season, before knocking out Avant Gaming and ORDER in the finals.
Unfortunately, Legacy came up short against long time rivals The Chiefs in the preliminary final and was eliminated, finishing third.
The team quickly switched their focus to Split Two, and with a blockbuster opening game against The Chiefs coming up on Friday night, the squad has been hard at work preparing for the season to come.
Claire, Raid, Mimic, Decoy and Only have been working on building team synergy around Only’s aggressive playstyle.
Legacy’s Head of Esports, Tim Wendel, said that the Jungler synergy is particularly important to the squad’s game plan.
“For us, the Jungler is the most important role, and we try to structure our game set up around our Jungler,” Wendel said.
“Our preparation has been based around making sure he’s across what he needs to do and what the rest of the team can expect from him.”
Aside from preparing for domestic competition, the squad is also preparing for the upcoming Rift Rivals tournament in July.
Legacy, alongside fellow Oceanic teams Chiefs and Dire Wolves, will take on the best teams from South East Asia and Japan in a fight for regional pride.
Split Two begins on Friday, June 8, and you can catch Legacy in action against old rivals The Chiefs from 7.30 PM AEST.
