Xpecial Transferred To Curse?
It seems that the TSM shake-up will continue... After announcing the shock transfer of Copenhagen Wolves jungler Maurice "Amazing" Stuckenschneider to replace the retiring Brian "TheOddOne" Wyllie, it seems that there will be even more changes to the TSM old-guard. Our sources tell us that next on the chopping block will be the support player Alex "Xpecial" Chu, who will be moving to Curse before the 6th May.
The move comes following a disagreement between the support player and the team owner and coach Andy "Reginald" Dinh, which saw Chu dropped because of his "attitude". The disagreement apparently related to how much solo-queue the player was involved in, apparently not enough for the liking of his coach. Many had speculated that the dropping of the player was a public show of force and he would be back on the team, however it seems that this has lead to the player seeking a move elsewhere and Curse are the lucky recipients.
On paper it seems a strange move. Curse themselves have constantly been cycling through support players and had recently dropped George "Zekent" Liu, replacing him with ex-jungler and team coach Brandon "Saintvicious" DiMarco, then bringing in Michael "Bunny FuFuu" Kurylo. The new recruit was seemingly doing well, forming a solid partnership with David "Cop" Roberson but we are told Curse want to bring in someone who can bring something to the table in terms of experience and shot-calling, alleviating some pressure on their other players.
TSM will still be on the lookout for a long term replacement support player so the off-season transfer madness isn't over yet.
