Yusui, Mid, Team Liquid

TL Yusui 2020 Split 1.pngAs I said about Triple last week, there’s an opening for “best Mid in Academy” right now, and Yusui is another leading candidate.

FLY Triple 2020 Split 2.pngWith Damonte returning to the LCS, there’s an opportunity for another player to step into his position as the best Mid in Academy. In week 1, Triple made a strong argument for slotting him into that spot.
