Splyce reportedly on the hunt for Vizicsacsi

Splyce reportedly on the hunt for Vizicsacsi

Splyce have reportedly approached Kiss “Vizicsacsi” Tamas according to a report from ESPN Esports’ Jacob Wolf. The move would be their first in an active 2019 LEC offseason.

Vizicsacsi would bring his leadership and team fighting abilities to Splyce. The team relied on their top laner Andrei “Odoamne” Pascu and jungler Andrei “Xerxe” Dragomir to start team fights. The replacement would be an equivalent change, and it would grant former UoL teammate Xerxe flexibility.

The top laner was a positive influence within the Unicorns of Love from 2014 to 2017 as they contended for the playoffs on a routine basis. He has also played in three finals in the region, the latest being in the 2018 summer split. However, he is the longest active player in Europe without a Worlds qualification, as he has played in the Regional Gauntlet four times.

Vizicsacsi’s arrival in Splyce signifies that the team may have parted ways with Odoamne. It could also indicate that they have replaced the top laner, although he has performed well during the spring and summer splits. According to Wolf, the Romanian top laner has garnered interest from Counter Logic Gaming, FC Schalke 04 Esports, Rogue and more.

Odoamne’s departure would confirm that Splyce was unable to hold onto several of their assets. It would be understandable, since the organization was a last-minute addition to the LEC franchise list. On the other hand, their hire of Vizicsacsi raises their stock heading into free agency. However, one has to wonder how they will fare, especially considering the offseason moves of Misfits Gaming and Origen.

Update: Nov. 26 @ 17:00 CET — Vizicsacsi has officially left FC Schalke 04 Esports.

Update @ Dec. 1 @ 23:00 CET — Vizicsacsi has joined Splyce in an official capacity. The top laner brings experience and leadership to a lineup that has since evolved from its early iteration. Beyond helping Humanoid’s integration into the LEC, he will take on the leadership mantle that Odoamne (possibly) and Kasing (confirmed) have left vacant.
