With TheOddOne retiring and Xpecial replaced by Gleeb going into the summer split, TSM struggled early on but started to rebound with the addition of Korean import Lustboy replacing Gleeb. The structure of the franchise is one that’d certainly be welcoming of a young face among a slew of veterans. I mean… you are going back to NA ADCs so. The post WildTurtle reflects on FlyQuest’s run at Worlds 2020, his 8-year pro career, and the state of North American League of Legends appeared first on Dot Esports. This also qualified them for the 2017 Mid-Season Invitational. They came back the next week to beat Team Liquid and finish in third place overall. To push the boundaries of what the region can achieve when it comes to results, developing talent domestically should be a top priority. What’s even more troubling, though, is that the formula goes far beyond TSM. Now, after nearly a decade in the LCS, he’s overseeing a new wave of talent under his tutelage. WildTurtle started off the 2020 LCS Summer Split with a 10 KDA average. This would let them participate in the 2017 Season North America Regional Finals and although they defeated Team Dignitas 3-0 in the first round, they lost 1-3 to CLG in the second round which ended their season. The process of nurturing young talent to a point where it can shine on the international level is one that takes time and attention. During that 2015 Worlds run, WildTurtle found himself in the final year of his tenure on TSM. After completing another run at the World Championship over the weekend, the longtime LCS veteran wrapped up his eighth season of competitive play. And for FlyQuest, adapting and evolving are two foundational concepts that the organization has prided itself on throughout the course of its journey from the ninth-best team in NA to securing the region’s second seed at the World Championship. In a back-and-forth five-game series, Immortals were upset and faced CLG in the third-place match, which they came back from a disastrous game 1 to win 3-2. A region like the LCK, on the other hand, took the time to develop its young players and invest in homegrown, domestic potential. Log in sign up. Now, after nearly a decade in the LCS, he’s…. And although five years have passed between his last two chances to compete on the Worlds stage, playing in this year’s tournament was still “an amazing experience,” according to WildTurtle. “Everyone needs to help each other get better at the game and just make the region competitive,” he said. “I just think everyone needs to adopt a culture around constantly improving and motivating younger players to get better at the game, too.”. IgNar runs around the map helping POE and Santorin find first blood and objectives. At the Battle of the Atlantic, TSM played against Lemondogs, using new mid laner Bjergsen in place of Reginald for the first time. While this has been instrumental in finding success for FlyQuest, the price of this is WildTurtle's laning phase. Often, the process is laden with false starts and abbreviated victories. Unfortunately, despite their combined 33-3 regular season record, Immortals only had 120 Championship Points compared to CLG's 130, and so it was CLG who won the automatic second-place 2016 Season World Championship seed from North America. “We’re not going to let NA get rolled over,” WildTurtle definitively declared with his eyes set on the future. The structure of the franchise is one that’d certainly be welcoming of a young face among a slew of veterans. Now, with the 2021 season looming on the horizon, he’ll be entering his ninth year in the league. WildTurtle is in no rush to move on from a team that’s found success in every facet of the game as of late. TSM began the 2015 Spring Split with an 8-2 record after five weeks, holding first place during every week after the first. When he made his international debut in 2013, he was TSM’s lone rookie—a shining beacon of hope on a TSM squad with four veterans surrounding him. On the heels of a turnaround season, one that saw FlyQuest shift its place in the standings from nearly dead-last to second overall, WildTurtle believes that the organization can continue to turn heads and push the envelope even further in 2021. Over the course of the last few years, the team has taken the time to sign the right free agents, build the right type of foundation, and develop a winning culture. We weren’t really challenged on many things back in North America, but here at Worlds, we were challenged on many different levels and we’ve adapted more than we ever have.”. But if there’s one team that represents a microcosm of what hope looks like in North America, it’s FlyQuest. In the summer split of LCS, TSM started relatively strong, sitting at a 8-2 record at the end of week 5. And as the wheel of time spins on, WildTurtle, a stalwart force of North American League of Legends, has no intention of going anywhere anytime soon. Log in sign up. If anything, 2020 was about proving that the “FlyQuest formula” works and that with a strong foundation, any player can find success. In FlyQuest games, WildTurtle is playing ADC in a way most players do not have to play. Check your inbox for a confirmation email! They won their series 2-0, and North America beat Europe in combined score. “We’re not going to let NA get rolled over,” WildTurtle definitively declared with his eyes set on the future. And for the LCS, a surplus of young, rising stars with oodles of potential is certainly something that’s missing from the league. And as the LCS prepares to enter its fourth full year of franchising, the focus for North America as a whole must now shift toward teams stepping out of their comfort zones. He has to 1 v 2 more than any other ADC. FlyQuest was always a fascinating team. In the finals, held at Madison Square Garden in New York City, they faced off against long-time rivals CLG and lost in a convincing 3-0 series. If only it were that easy. At that point, he was only in his third year playing at the professional level. There, they defeated Team WE, CJ Entus (marking their first tournament win over a Korean team), and the yoe Flash Wolves to advance to the finals of the event, where they swept Team WE 3-0 to win the title. That team ended up being Team Solomid, who were on a strong upswing after a sixth-place regular season finish. The more things change, the more they stay the same, after all. “I still feel the same way that I did when I was really young,” he said when it came to playing at his fourth World Championship. LGD massively underperformed expectations, however, and TSM took a game off them in the first round robin. What’s even more troubling, though, is that the formula goes far beyond TSM. There’s an esports league for that. For years, the entirety of North America has convinced itself that it was in a “win-now” situation—that the region could skip the process of building a winning foundation and take home a World Championship through the sheer power of its expansive, region-wide wallet. We weren’t really challenged on many things back in North America, but here at Worlds, we were challenged on many different levels and we’ve adapted more than we ever have.”. However, at the same time Origen overperformed, and ultimately KT Rolster and Origen made it out of groups; TSM lost their second game against LGD and ended up in last place with a 1-5 record. If FlyQuest takes the time to develop any young talent at all in 2021, it’d be totally reasonable to assume that any rising star taken under the organization’s wing could find success and longevity.

Now, after nearly a decade in the LCS, he’s overseeing a new wave of talent under his tutelage. Seven years ago, it was believed that he was the lightning strike that could jolt TSM toward international success. WildTurtle—a man who’s seen the LCS rise, fall, rise, and fall again—has total hope that “North America can turn around as a region” on a complete scale. But to make them a more common occurrence in the LCS, WildTurtle, a once-promising rookie himself, believes in a league-wide, communal approach. “I think players are too entitled.
