Slingshot Readers,

We NEED your support. More specifically, the author of this article needs your support. If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat. If just half our readers gave 1 DOLLAR a month, one measly dollar, we could fund all the work from StuChiu, DeKay, Emily, Andrew (and even Vince). If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support. After all, you're what makes all this happen. Learn more


Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

With Emil “Magisk” Reif benched, he may as well be kicked. In which case, the question turns to where he goes now. Despite a slumping form that lasted for the majority of 2017 (I think his ELEAGUE Major performance in January was still excellent), he still has potential to grow and return to that level. The question is where to now? NA is always an option as they are starved for talent, but none of the top 3 teams need him. TL is set. OpTic needs an in-game leader, not a fragger. Cloud9 could upgrade shroud or nothing for him, but won’t do it. So he’d likely be relegated to a weaker NA team without much hope of international success.

The most likely choice seems to be Heroic as it needs a star player like Magisk since valde has left the team. He fits the bill.

The only other choice I can think of is joining Dignitas again as that team is on the cusp and needs more skill to push forward, skill that Magisk has.
