Souless is a very new streamer on the Twitch platform, but he is well known due to his skill. After only 2 days with each of them, he took three accounts to the Challenger level. He is also known for playing with unusual team compositions and strategies.
“I’ve been a TSM fan ever since I started playing League of Legends, from their super unique logo design to their player choices. I even have the TSM icon on my main League of Legends account,” wrote Souless. “I’m glad TSM gave me a chance to work with them. And I’m thankful for the TFT community, without them I wouldn’t have made it this far.”
LCS to TFT
Keane should be a familiar name in the League of Legends community. He last played for FlyQuest in a Mid Laner role during the 2018 LCS Summer Split. He has also competed under organizations like FlyQuest Academy, Team Dignitas, Apex Gaming, Gravity, and Team Curse. Since then, he has transitioned to Teamfight Tactics, where he sits high ranked with multiple Challenger accounts as well.
“It’s really exciting to join Team SoloMid after playing so many games against them in the past. It will be a very interesting new experience, especially signing for an entirely new game,” said Keane. “I look forward to what will happen over the next year, and hope to make the org proud!”
Teamfight Tactics still remains in the top 10 most streamed games for the past month. It is also ranked 3rd for the highest peak viewership in the last month. Will TFT continue with such popularity despite so many other auto battler titles coming out?
