It was only a matter of time before Doublelift would leave Team Liquid, and now the official announcement has been made. Doublelift has officially left Team Liquid and has returned to Team SoloMid. The experienced veteran had been missing from the eSport scene for half a split before being brought back by Team Liquid to stop their team from being relegated.

Doublelift – hired gun

Having successfully accomplished his goal of keeping Team Liquid in the LCS, the prodigal ADC player finally returns to his own Team SoloMid, leaving a gaping hole in the TL bot lane. Team Liquid is in a unique spot, considering their ADC has already walked away. There are rumours going around that their mid and support players are also planning to leave the team. Adrian has already left the team leaving Matt as the only support player.

Doublelift has returned to Team SoloMid but won’t be playing with the team during MSI. You’ll finally be able to see Doublelift in action again in the Summer Split where he will be acting as the main ADC for Team SoloMid. Doublelift will be the main ADC player considering his skills but it is highly likely that he will be switching Jason “WildTurtle” Tran – the current ADC player for team SoloMid – when Doublelift starts playing in the Summer Split.

So, who will be joining Team Liquid as their new ADC? Considering Doublelift will be playing for Team SoloMid along with WildTurtle, it’s easy to tell that Doublelift is by far a better marksman and a better overall ADC player. WildTurtle will definitely want to get his fair share of time in the spotlight but considering Team SoloMid will already have a better ADC, WildTurtle might have to find another team for himself.

Musical Chairs

Considering WildTurtle has left Team SoloMid before it’s highly likely to happen again if he doesn’t get his time in the spotlight. The most obvious choice for a new Team for WildTurtle would be joining up with Team Liquid to fill the void that was made by Doublelift leaving.

Another great choice for a new ADC player would be FORG1VEN considering he’s one of the best players around right now. He would certainly provide Team Liquid with a considerable boost, but his teamwork skills leave a lot of questions. FORG1VEN has a background riddled with controversy which is caused by his lack of teamwork and overbearing ego.

As more information becomes available we will keep you updated but for now, all eyes are going to be seeing how these two teams perform in the Mid-Season Invitational.
