OpTic Gaming, one of the new teams to join the NA LCS in 2018, has announced its official starting line-up, but not exactly how we expected them to. While most other teams have offered simple tweets or press releases and others have created elaborate videos, OpTic appears to have announced their roster via holiday greeting card.

The team tweeted the photo, complete with a full lineup of League players, Monday morning and it was quickly followed by tweets from players that made the announcement a little more formal. Each of the player tweets has a custom gif attached that shows off the player in their new OpTic uniform.
Representing the team in the top lane will be former Phoenix1 player Derek “Zig” Shao. Jungle will be handled by Matt “Akaadian” Higginbotham, who played for Echo Fox in 2017. In the mid lane, the team will import European star, Tristan “PowerOfEvil” Schrage. The team’s bottom lane will feature Noh “Arrow” Dong-hyeon, formerly of Phoenix1 and Daerek “LemonNation” Hart who will join from FlyQuest.
