LoL 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.

This website spreads rumors faster then the plague..
Are they rumours if they turn out right every time?
personally think the lack of solo queue is a shit excuse. some people don't need to play 12 hrs a day to be good at their role. did great the past lcs and apart from that he was still the main caller in the team. tsm did good with the inclusion of amazing but it will be a lot harder replacing xpecial.
while you train your teamplay 6 hours a day you dont focus that hard on you mechanics especially when you try out new stuff in training. you may still play good but you drop a lil bit. so you need some hours of soloq-training just to stay on your level and some extra to get better.
but yeah you are right not everybody needs the same amount of training to stay at the same level.
EG and CLB look very weak now - looks like its going to be a 6 team LCS pretty much.
unfortunately true. agree with rekkles in him saying top tier teams are decreasing. doesn't look good for na and eu vs the koreans. ultimate goal is always worlds and you'd obviously have more chance of winning it if you're playing against equally top teams week in week out.

Except Richard is almost always right.
Gotta hand it to you, Richard! Great work the past couple of days/weeks!

will there be any news regarding the LoL scene in korea/china richard?
gleebglarbu is the new support for TSM. Also Xpecial admitted in one of his lastest vlogs that it was in fact due to him having a bad attitude and that his passive-aggressiveness is the reason for being benched. they had both glee and xpecial fight for the spot and the team choose glee.
