With news that Forgiven will be asking to be moved in this offseason, I figured I would evaluate his possible landing spots in the west.
The Unicorns were so close to claiming the throne of the EU LCS this split despite having what many consider to be a weak ADC. Vardags is one of the lowest statistical ADCs in the west, as well as having a weak champion pool to say the least. UOL has that early CLoud 9 feel, were they are all friends and get along really well, but to make a strong push for international success, they could use more talent especially at the ADC position. Hylissang’s playmaking and skillshot Accuracy would set someone with Forgiven’s skills up for a ton of success, and would probably end up being the best Support Forgiven as played with in his career, which is scary.
Obviously Roccat was a huge disappointment last season, and Woolite wasn’t exactly the glaring problem, but his positioning was a big problem with their team fighting, often getting caught way too far out. This team has a ton of quality players throughout the roster in Vander, Jankos and Nukeduck. Add forgiven to this mix, replace Overpow with a much more talented Top laner, (think J Waow), and all of a sudden you have a top 3 team talent wise, that would hopefully materialize.
My thoughts on where he ends up
Looking through the rest of the teams, I can not see him going to any of the top NA teams whether it be because of the foreign player limit, or becuase simply I do not see teams like TSM and C9 replacing their ADCs mid year, even Doublelift is safe. Maybe Team 8 is a spot, but that just sounds awful doesn’t it? Team 8 Forgiven?! you can not say that with a straight face. Inevitably I think he will find himself in a tough spot, and end up on Roccat. Let’s just hope he doesn’t end up playing for a Greek team again.
