Dear Liquid fans,
We have come to a very difficult decision that we hope will lead to better performance. We have decided that it would be best to have Piglet sit out for week five of the North American LCS. Our substitute player, KeithmcBrief, will move to the starting roster.
– Peter Zhang, Head Coach
You read that right. World champion and ADC legend Piglet is benched and to be replaced by an amateur KeithmcBrief.
It’s no surprise judging from the past especially from his streams, videos and vlogs that Piglet is having a hard time adjusting in America. Not just adjusting to the NA meta but life in general. Also the fact that NA eSports teams have a totally different structure from Korean teams. Piglet is having a hard time performing in the LCS but head coach, Peter Zhang is still hopeful Piglet will go back to the main roster.
In the mean time, Piglet has to work hard and adjust to life in NA so he won’t tilt further. Piglet is known for his ridiculous work ethic. Nicknamed “practice worm” by his teammates in his former Korean team, Piglet should go back to his roots to find himself back at the top again. He may have lost some of his skills and the pressure is getting to him but let’s hope he hasn’t lost his hardworking attitude that got him to be a world champion in the first place.
