Although Team Whales publicly has a new member, fans still have to feel sad because he can’t play because the lineup was fixed a week ago.
At the VCS tournament – the top tournament of Vietnamese League of Legends, every time Korean looks appear, they receive the attention of many people. So with Team Whales debuting a new member, many fans noticed because they hinted that this person was from the LCK:
“[Chấn động] TEAM WHALES LOOK AT MIDDLE NIGHT!!!
An extremely unexpected hit in the dead of night from the LCK to Team Whales right before the VCS Spring 2023!
Team Whales is picking her up at the airport and is really looking forward to the hi5 with the Korean Whale joining the pack!”, Team Whales previously informed.
It is known that according to the shared clip, this player is only 19 years old. This is the youngest age among foreign soldiers ever coming to VCS. Previously, Cerberus Esports has shared many times that this team does not recruit Korean players, especially those 18-19 years old because it is difficult to obtain a work permit in Vietnam. Therefore, there are many speculations that the guy in the welcome video of Team Whales is TLong – a former BRION player who played in the LCK CL and was a substitute in the LCK.
In addition, about a week ago, Team Whales also revealed the official lineup for the VCS Spring 2023 season. There are no foreign players from the LCK or TLong on this list. Therefore, there is a high possibility that the new member has not been able to start the game right away and that he joined the team just to share his experience in the LCK.
