Team Liquid round out their 2018 NA LCS roster
POSTED BY Ram Ronquillo ON December 5, 2017
In case you missed it, NA LCS team, Team Liquid announced their last two players to complete their 2018 roster.
Team Liquid announced last month that veterans Eugene “Pobelter” Park, Jake “Xmithie” Puchero, and Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng were joining the roster for the 2018 North American League of Legends Championship Series. The month ended with the team announcing that veteran and former Cloud9 top laner Jung “Impact” Eon-yong and former Immortals support Kim “Olleh” Joo-sung were the last two members to complete the roster.

Prior to the announcement, it was reported by various sources that support Olleh was going to join his former Immortals teammates, Pobelter and Xmithie in Team Liquid. The support has proven to be quite the versatile player having played on tanks, supports, and engage supports. His variety of play will come in handy especially in a veteran filled squad like Team Liquid especially since he’s supporting star AD Carry, Doublelift.
We are happy to have signed @Impact to a three year deal!

Impact on the other hand has a world championship under his belt having been part of SK Telecom T1 in 2013. He has since played with Cloud9 and shown multiple times that his skill in the top lane is still on par with the rest of the top laners. He has since played in the 2015, 2016, and 2017 World Championship with Cloud9.
The team on paper is looking impressive with tons of talent and experience across the five roles. Assuming the team will work well together, they may just be a contender for the NA LCS title.
