Xiao8 leaving LGD to join dream team?
Just minutes after their win in D2L Season 4 at Las Vegas, Nevada, long time captain of LGD Ning 'xiao8' Zhang posted a status update on Weibo that may indicate on himself joining the impending Chinese shuffle.
Playing with two stand-ins, Fnatic fought admirably and moments ago, they took down the tournament favourite Vici Gaming 2-1 in what seems to be a good candidate for upset of the year nomination.
LGD took down their fellow countrymen Vici Gaming in the deciding of the winner bracket final to secure their spot in the grand final of the tournament and at least $15,000 in cash prize.
Fnatic pulled one out of the hat and destroyed Alliance in three games to qualify for the loser bracket final. Fnatic will be facing the loser of Vici Gaming versus LGD tomorrow to determine who gets to move onto the grand final of D2L season 4.
Unfortunately, Fnatic are struck by more unfortunate events as their mid player H4nn1 will have to skip the D2L playoffs due to a delayed flight. Filling in for him will be Aui_2000. Earlier in the day, it was reported that Era will be replaced by DeMoN for the event.
Just slightly over 24 hours before the start of the offline playoffs of D2L, Fnatic came with unfortunate news that their carry player Adrian 'Era' Kryeziu will not be attending the tournament due to health issues. Jimmy 'Demon' Ho of former MVP Phoenix will be replacing Kryeziu as a last minute replacement.
After lengthy talks with LGD, D2L has reinstated LGD's spot to compete in their season four finals stating the miscommunication came within the Chinese organization.
