Moving to Echo Fox
November 29, 2018
Solo will be transferred to Echo Fox, Clutch Gaming relayed on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Solo will complete the trifecta of Clutch Gaming players heading to Echo Fox, as the organization appears to be transitioning to a roster primarily filled with younger players. Solo should have plenty in common with the majority of his Echo Fox teammates, but it remains to be seen if he can improve upon his 2.1 KDA which he registered during the 2018 Summer Split.
Teaming with Echo Fox
November 29, 2018
Apollo has been transferred to Echo Fox, Clutch Gaming confirmed Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Apollo will move on from a Clutch Gaming organization that seems intent on building and developing younger talent, joining Echo Fox as the expected starting AD Carry. Apollo put together an unsightly 54/40/59 KDA during the 2018 Summer Split, but part of that could be blamed on the situation, as Clutch Gaming seemed bereft on discovering a continually effective winning strategy.
Transferred to Echo Fox
November 29, 2018
Hakuho has been transferred to Echo Fox, the organization confirmed Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Clutch Gaming overhauled their roster during the offseason, bringing in Huni, Damonte and Vulcan, the latter of which is expected to take over as the starting support in place of Hakuho. What's Clutch Gaming's loss is Echo Fox's gain, as Hakuho along with two other members of CG will move over to the orange-brandished organization, combining with a roster that save for bottom laner, Lost, is entirely new to the team.
Teaming with Cloud9
November 29, 2018
Nisqy will join Cloud9, the organization confirmed in an announcement last week.
ANALYSIS
Nisqy will make his second stint in the NA LCS, previously teaming with Team EnVyUs during the 2017 Summer Split. The European player helped Splyce secure back-to-back playoff appearances in the 2018 season, including a third-place finish during the Spring Split.
Expected to join Golden Guardians
November 27, 2018
Olleh is expected to join Golden Guardians, ESPN.com's Jacob Wolf reports.
ANALYSIS
Provided the transfer agreement is processed and finalized, Olleh will join Golden Guardians after a year-long stint with Team Liquid, and just his second year in North America altogether. A variety of lineup changes helped pave the way for Olleh to join a different team, but its clear Golden Guardians is intent on improving its woeful mark in the standings, where it finished in last during the 2018 Spring and Summer Split.
Poised to transfer to Golden Guardians
November 27, 2018
Hauntzer is expected to join the Golden Guardians once transfer agreements are finalized, ESPN.com's Jacob Wolf reports.
ANALYSIS
If this move is finalized, it would mark the first time Hauntzer would play for a team other than Team SoloMid since 2015, as the top laner has been a fixture of the organization for much of his professional career. Hauntzer didn't exactly live up to his lofty standards during the 2018 Summer Split which likely prompted the move, as TSM acquired Broken Blade from Royal Bandits, signaling the transition from its long time top laner.
Joins Clutch Gaming
November 27, 2018
Damonte will join Clutch Gaming, ESPN.com's Jacob Wolf reports.
ANALYSIS
Clutch Gaming completed its dramatic roster turnover with the addition of Damonte, who will be stepping in at mid lane for Febiven, who was transferred to Misfits on Tuesday. Damonte played in 14 games for Echo Fox during the 2018 Summer Split, finishing with a disappointing figures, including a 2.6 KDA and a 57.2 kill participation percentage.
Joining Golden Guardians
November 27, 2018
Froggen is expected to join the Golden Guardians, ESPN.com's Jacob Wolf reports.
ANALYSIS
Froggen left Echo Fox and the competitive scene in July, but it appears as if the mid laner is ready to make his return, reuniting with his former Echo Fox coach, Inero, on Golden Guardians. While the roster still has plenty of question marks, Froggen should provide some stability to the mid lane.
Joins 100 Thieves
November 27, 2018
Bang is expected to join 100 Thieves, ESPN.com's Jacob Wolf reports.
ANALYSIS
Bang adds yet another former SK Telecom T1 to the Western hemisphere, as the once vaunted team failed to qualify for the LoL World Championships for the first time since its illustrious competitive run. Bang will join two Korean-speaking players, Huhi and Ssumday in what figures to a competitive roster for 100 Thieves.
Teaming with Clutch Gaming
November 27, 2018
Huni will join Clutch Gaming, ESPN.com's Jacob Wolf reports.
ANALYSIS
The rise and fall of Huni could certainly make for an interesting epic when it's all said and done, but for now the 20-year-old top laner appears to be joining a cushy situation in the form of Clutch Gaming. While there's a remote possibility Huni's position could change depending on how the team wants to structure their lineup, doing so would likely mitigate any potential advantages behind acquiring Huni. He remains one of the better fantasy plays at the position on any given day and should be a major boost to the international prospects of Clutch Gaming.
Aligns with FlyQuest
November 27, 2018
Pobelter will join FlyQuest, ESPN.com's Jacob Wolf reports.
ANALYSIS
Pobelter will take over for Keane, giving more help to the team's star duo of jungler Santorin and AD carry WildTurtle. The mid laner finished the 2018 Summer Split with a 42/35/95 KDA and a relatively middle of the pack 70.6 kill participation percentage. Of course the veteran player has the ability to pop off on a given notice, but at least for fantasy purposes both Santorin and WildTurtle gain a bit more value thanks to the addition of their newest teammate.
Expected to join CLG
November 27, 2018
PowerOfEvil is expected to join Counter Logic Gaming, ESPN.com's Jacob Wolf reports.
ANALYSIS
PowerOfEvil is expected to take over at the mid lane with Huhi transferring to 100 Thieves. The European-born player posted a 3.7 KDA across 18 games during the Summer Split, but his league-leading 78.8 percent kill participation percentage figure likely gives some credence to the ugly KDA number.
Free Agent
No longer with Schalke 04
November 21, 2018
Vander is a free agent and no longer a part of Schalke 04.
ANALYSIS
Vander seems committed to playing in the EU LCS, the only place he's known throughout the first five seasons. If that's the case, he should have a couple of available suitors, particularly with a sterling 5.4 KDA across 20 starts for Schalke 04 during the 2018 Summer Split.
Signs on with Origen
November 21, 2018
Alphari will join Origen according to the LoL database.
ANALYSIS
Misfits didn't appear to value their top laner, as Alphari will leave the organization despite a fantastic outing during the LoL World Championships. The top laner finished with the second most kills among EU top laners and also posted a solid 60.1 kill participation percentage to go along with a 6.2 KDA - easily the highest figure among players who play in 15 games.
Teaming with Origen
November 21, 2018
Nukeduck will join Origen, according to the LoL database.
ANALYSIS
Nukeduck had the fourth highest kill total of any EU mid laner, finishing the season with a respectable 3.3 KDA. He'll be the main offensive catalyst for Origen during their return to the EU LCS.
