Team SoloMid has transferred Jason “WildTurtle” Tran to FlyQuest, the organization announced Thursday.
WildTurtle joined TSM for the second time during the spring split of the North American League of Legends Championship Series after Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng decided to take a break from the game. But with Doublelift returning, TSM had two AD Carries, and Wildturtle has moved to FLyQuest. He will replace Johnny “Altec” Ru.
On FlyQuest, WildTurtle will reunite with former teammates Hai “Hai” Du Lam and Dearek “Lemonnation” Hart, with whom he played on Cloud9 before joining TSM for the first time in 2013. FlyQuest reportedly signed Aleš “Freeze” Kněžínek to replace Altec as AD Carry, but the team reportedly changed its tune.
FlyQuest was previously Cloud9 Challenger and qualified for the North American LCS spring split. The LCS spot, as well as most of the roster, was purchased by the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks. FlyQuest defied most expectations and qualified for the spring playoffs, ultimately placing fourth after losing the third place match against Phoenix1.
TSM, meanwhile, is coming off another LCS championship and will look for another strong summer performance with the returning Doublelift.
