League of Legends: Doublelift Reportedly Moving to TSM

Doublelift may be going back to TSM.


After a tumultuous Spring Split, Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng is leaving Team Liquid. Today, ESPN's Jacob Wolf reported that he is headed back to his old team, Team SoloMid.

Doublelift was one of the core members of the TL squad that dominated the LCS for the past two years. They won four domestic championships in a row, but this year, the team struggled. There were some unfortunate circumstances but in the end, the squad finished ninth. In addition, Doublelift was benched for lack of motivation and some in the community attributed TL's struggles to him. Because of this, many expected changes moving towards Summer.

According to the report, Doublelift had offers from multiple teams, which is no surprise. He chose TSM over all of them because he was “intimately involved” in the deal. This choice shows that the star AD Carry sees huge potential in TSM's current form.

This report hasn't been officially confirmed by either of the teams, but if this report is true, it would be huge for TSM. Many had high expectations for Kasper “Kobbe” Kobberup this split, but he's essentially been invisible. The TSM solo laners have looked great, and with extra firepower in the bottom lane, TSM could become a true contender for the LCS title. They haven't been able to win the split since Team Liquid began their reign, and though they're in the Cloud9 era now, a roster with Doublelift could change all that. He's won two titles with them before and is likely hungry for more.
