“Gleebglarbu” New Support for TSM, Xpecial Joins Curse
We are sad to announce today that we are parting ways with Alex “Xpecial” Chu.
“Xpecial is an amazing player, but just because you have the best players on a team does not mean you have the best team. After we had the tryouts, I discussed it with the players and as a team, we decided that having a new support player would be better for the team. Xpecial is still a friend and it was very hard for me to have to let him go.” – Andy “Reginald” Dinh
Nicolas “Gleebglarbu” Haddad will be TSM’s new support player. Gleeb is currently ranked #34 on the NA Solo Queue Challenger ladder and was the support player for the Cloud 9 Tempest Challenger team.
One of the major reasons we chose Gleebglarbu for the role is his commitment and willingness to work harder than anyone else. Everyone on the team feels motivated when playing with him. Even though he’s a new player, we believe Gleebglarbu will help TSM become the world’s best.
The team was unanimous in their decision to pick Gleebglarbu. The tryouts for a new support included both him and Xpecial, after which Reginald went to Curse to trade Xpecial.
“After deciding on Gleeb as TSM’s new support, my one goal was to find a good home for Xpecial. I chose Curse because I believe Xpecial is an invaluable player and will make Curse stronger.” - Reginald
Xpecial willl be joining Curse as their new support player in the upcoming LCS Summer Split. We wish Xpecial the best of luck.
The new TSM starting roster will be as follows:
Marcus “Dyrus” Hill – Top Laner
Maurice “Amazing” Stückenschneider – Jungler
Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg – Mid Laner
Jason “WildTurtle” Tran – AD Carry
Nicolas “Gleebglarbu” Haddad – Support
