Team Coast will import Impaler, Jesiz for expansion tournament
Team Coast will import two European imports in their bid for a League Championship Series. SK Gaming mid laner Jesse "Jesiz" Le and Supa Hot Crew’s former jungler Matt “Impaler” Taylor will join the team before the upcoming North American Expansion tournament
Both players had already dropped hints on Twitter that they will be moving to North America.
I challenge you, le reddit detectives... Where am I going? *tipping intensifies*— Impaler (@Impalerlol) October 27, 2014
See ya Europe :)— Jesse Le (@Jesizlol) October 27, 2014
Sources close to the player also linked Taylor with CompLexity, but the Brit elected to join Team Coast instead.
The acquisition of Taylor all but signals the end of highly coveted jungler Lucas “Santorin” Larsen’s time with Team Coast. The Daily Dot reported that Larsen had received offer from Team Solo Mid on Oct. 21 and he has since been spotted in the TSM house by eagle-eyed stream watchers.
For Team Coast, it will complete a significant overhaul of the roster. Several of their previous squad have moved on to other teams leading to the recent acquisitions in September of Cristian "Cris" Rosales and Ben "LOD" DeMunck, from Team Curse and Team LoLPro respectively. It isn’t clear what will happen to mid laner DeMunck now that Le has been brought in to replace him.
