TSM’s Nicolas “Gleebglarbu” Haddad is going to be replaced by CJ Entus Blaze’s Jank-sik “Lustboy” Ham as the main support player. This roster change is a very risky move by TSM with only 6 games remaining in the LCS and with Playoffs just around the corner.
Locodoco, TSM’s coach, recently said in a vlog that, “Our (TSM’s) bottom lane has performed very well in solo queue.” He added, “They played decently in scrims. Sometimes, well. Sometimes, not so well. In LCS, it’s been a very long time since our bot lane won.”
Locodoco also felt that the personalities were not meshing well with Gleebglarbu and observed that the environment it was creating was unproductive and hindered shot calling. Locodoco believes that bringing in Lustboy will allow for more efficient shot calling and improved performances.
Gleebglarbu said in a recent Facebook post that:
The more I thought about it, I began to see that TSM is going to be much better off with Lustboy and I’ll be much happier streaming and starting up college” and “TSM needs to do what will win them PAX and what will prepare them for worlds. I don’t have great mechanics, I choke hard under pressure, and I don’t deal with stress well, especially community stress. Lustboy has been playing on CJ Blaze since I can remember. He is easily one of the best supports in the world and has a ton of experience.
Gleebglarbu is now a substitute for TSM and Lustboy is now at the TSM house.
Lolesports tweeted that Lustboy has just been cleared to play for TSM in Week 10 of the Season 4 LCS where he will make his NA debut.
