Aiming for the ticket to the playoffs in VCS 2023, Team Secret quickly added quality human resources to raise hope, this name is not strange.
Out of the total of 8 teams participating in the VCS 2023 Breaking Dawn, Team Secret is considered one of the teams with the best lineup. As an example, this team ranked 3rd in VCS Summer 2022, they constantly have personnel adjustments in the role of Jungle. From Penguin, Skewed, Sorn or most recently, rookie Qiang.
Although ending the first leg with a 2-5 record, the latest victory against SBTC Esports also helped TS somewhat keep hope in the second leg. The current squad is only 1 point behind SE’s 4th place and still has the right to decide for themselves in the next 6 matches.
But recently, TS has continued to add Elio in the role of Support. The former GAM Esports player is considered one of the quality names in this position. Although not playing since leaving the defending champion, that probably won’t affect Elio’s Support position much.
In the previous season, this player also had 10 games to play for GAM to replace Bie and he also performed well in those times given those opportunities. One thing is clear that the experience in a large team as well as the last time attending Worlds 2022 also helped Elio a lot in the process of playing, even though he rarely played.
Currently, when joining TS, this player is expected to help coach Archie have more choices in his squad to operate the strategy more easily. Of course, the presence of Elio will also contribute to increasing competition with Xuhao, TS’s Support player during the past seasons.
Thus, it can be understood that if the performance is still unstable, the “great admiral” TS is likely to lose his official position, sitting on the sidelines watching his teammates compete. In another case fans mentioned Elio playing Support while Xuhao returned to his old role of Jungle. This is considered a possible option in the context of the remaining options are facing problems.
With the new rule of VCS 2023 Breaking Dawn, teams can completely sign contracts with “freelance players” and proceed to register for the next match week. Therefore, it is entirely possible that Elio will be able to debut a new team this week, possibly even in the match against Saigon Buffalo at 8 pm on March 25.
