Today marks a tragic turn in the story of North American League Of Legends as it looks the 7th place team from the North American Regional Qualifiers, Team Legion, will be disbanding. Although no official statement has been made yet, Jungler Lautemortis was cited earlier having a conversation with Nientonsoh about the team’s departure from the NA scene:
ggChronicle has confirmed the trouble with several members of the team via Skype, and it seems like inner conflicts started to tear them apart. Although we have not received an official statement from any of the players, or their manager Cappy.
Strong sentiments of friendship have always been key to Legion’s success as a team. Support player iNo0bish and AP mid pr0lly have been teamed with Lautemortis ever since they first formed as Team Reflex and participated in MLG Providence. No plans for the trio or the top lane and AD carry duo to join new teams have been solidified, but the screenshot above hints that we may see them in competitive play at the start of Season Three.
On a more personal note, I for one am extremely sad to see the team part ways, as they are all very good friends of mine. We here at ggC wish them all the best with their further endeavors in eSports.
A front runner for Season Three in NA, Legion was well known for taking 3rd place at IPL Face-Off with substitute WildTurtle, as well as a 2 win streak on the MLG Prizefights, defeating Curse and Team SoloMid 2-0 before losing 0-2 to CLG Prime.
Update 11:21 PM EST - Team Manager Diego “Cappy” Bodart has issued the following statement on his twitter.
Team Legion has been on uneven grounds for the past weeks.In a team that is based on friendship the smallest problems escalate. Because of this players have the decided that the best for everyone involved is a fresh start. We remain friends and will keep supporting each other wherever we all might go. I want to wish luck to all the players, and sorry to all the fans. Statements from the players to come
