Inori to Team Liquid: TL announces acquisition of former Phoenix1 jungler

This moves rookie MikeYeung into the starting spot for P1.

Team Liquid

Team Liquid announced Thursday in a tweet that they have added former Phoenix1 jungler Rami “Inori” Charagh to their roster.

The tweet also mention that they are returning to their previous format of the 10 man roster which would indicate that current jungler Kim “Reignover” Yeu-jin will continue to play for the team, though it remains to be seen which player will receive the majority of the time on the starting LCS roster.

Charagh joined Phoenix1 in week five of the 2016 Summer Split helping the team recover from an 0-9 start including an iconic win against the, then undefeated, Team SoloMid. Charagh came in second in the Rookie of the Split voting for that Summer Split as well losing out to TSM’s Vincent “Biofrost” Wang.

He also played a key role in the team’s success in the 2017 Spring Split where they finished in third place. The team recently added rookie jungler Michael “MikeYeung” Yeung to the starting roster and have decided to part ways with Charagh after Yeung’s promising debut last week. The team makes clear, in a statement released via Twitter, that the team and Charagh parted on amicable terms.

These roster moves come at key points in the season for both teams as they continue to struggle through the Summer Split so far with Team Liquid starting out 1-5 and Phoenix1 even worse, at 0-6.

It remains unclear which Team Liquid jungler will start their first match in Week four, however, it is unlikely that they will ask Charagh to play against his former team when the two teams meet on Sunday.
