Replacing Gleeb as TSM’s starting support player, Jang-sik “Lustboy” Ham is the former support player of the Korean team CJ Entus Blaze who he was with for two years before moving.
He helped Blaze secure their 1st place win at OGN 2012 Spring, 2nd place at OGN 2013 Spring, and 1st place at IEM 7 World Championship in 2013.
“Our performance this split has been underwhelming and we don’t feel very confident going into playoffs. When we picked up Gleeb, I knew it would take time for him to play comfortably against top supports, but he’s not where we need him to be yet and we are running out of time. I know it’s late in the split, but we feel this change needs to be done to improve our chances of making it to the World Championship.” said Yoonsup “Locodoco” Choi, coach of TSM.
“This was not an easy decision for us since playoffs are less than a month away, but this drastic change is necessary for us to maximize our chances of qualifying for the World Championship.”
Gleeb will remain a substitute player for TSM while Lustboy is already at the TSM house and will debut at LCS this weekend.
