TeamSoloMid’s former AD Carry has returned to the fold after a year with the Immortals.
TSM made the announcement official through their Youtube channel on Wednesday, which features the retuning Jason “Wildturtle” Tran giving a brief statement about how he feels to come back.
“Even though all the players changed, it still feels really familiar with me, I get along with all the players very well and I already worked with (Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg) before, and (Parth “Parth” Naidu), so I definitely know what that feels like,” he said in the video. “I kind of already know what’s happening, and it just feels like home.”
TSM’s owner and coach Andy Dinh spoke briefly about the appointment, and said that Wildturtle was the best fit in a couple of ways.
“Honestly it feels great that Turtle is back on TSM,” he said. “I think that going with Turtle, we’re going to do really well next year, and I think he was probably the best candidate to help us develop Biofrost. Not only does he fit in our team well inside the game, but he also fits in well outside the game.”
Wildturtle has been the AD Carry for TSM for two years from 2013 to 2015 before his move to the Immortals for the 2016 season.
