Team SoloMid
Surprisingly new top laner
January 8, 2019
Broken Blade will start in the top lane for TSM to begin the 2019 Spring Split.
ANALYSIS
Pick any number of reasons, and you'll probably be right. It's quite possible that Hauntzer was simply getting too expensive for Team SoloMid to roll out on a yearly basis, or Bjergsen and the rest of TSM simply didn't want to funnel their strategy through the veteran top laner anymore. Missing the LoL World Championships for the first time since the tournament's inception could have possibly ignited a plethora of changes. Whatever reason you choose to accept, the surprising decision to jettison three-year starting top laner to Golden Guardians for a less-than-heralded prospect in the form of Broken Blade will likely go down as the biggest decision in a long list of curious choices TSM made during the 2018-19 offseason. To be fair, BB certainly seems like an enticing prospect, dominating the Turkish scene for much of 2018, but compared to the likes of Hauntzer, the new TSM top laner will need to come on fast if he hopes to erase the memories of the legend whose position he now occupies.
