If he takes the free agent route, he should draw some decent attention from teams looking for a well-rounded Jungler who saves them a crucial import slot.
Possible Destinations: Immortals, Team SoloMid, Gravity, Cloud9
Speculation is swirling around Adrian Ma, who played Support with Team Impulse in 2015. Here’s why he’s so highly sought after this offseason.
Adrian accomplished his very impressive stat line while playing on a sometimes disorganized Team Impulse, alongside a Jungler who placed the second-fewest wards in the NA LCS. Impulse finished the 2015 Summer regular season with a 13-6 record, good for third place in the region, and was eliminated from the North American Regionals tournament by Cloud9.
