FLUFF teams up with ixmike88 for a shot at TI4 Qualifiers
After being removed from Team Liquid roster, Brian 'FLUFFNSTUFF' Lee teams up with former Liquid teammate Michael 'ixmike88' Ghannam to form a new squad, 'Sneaky Nyx Assassins'.
The North American player was booted from his former team, Team Liquid, after an emotional outburst on his blog. After a period of free agency, he has again been given the reins to lead an all new North American roster that is aiming to qualify for Seattle.
Joining him will be former FnaticRC player Bryant 'WhiteBeard' Lehwald, Chris 'Ush' Usher, Veasna 'SNA' Sokhom and Lee's former Liquid teammate Michael 'ixmike88' Ghannam. With Lee and Lehwald on the support role, Usher on mid, Sokhom on the hard carry role, that leaves Ghannam on his usual offlane role.
The team has just won their first amateur tournament, DotaTrash's King of the Hill, beating Revenge Esports 2-1 (VODs here). The team will also be competing at the ESL One Online qualifiers to earn a ticket to the LAN in Frankfurt.
