Team Preview: GIANTS! Gaming

 

Line Up

Top: Atom

Jungle: kOu

Mid: Xpepii

Adc: Adryh

Support: GoDFRED

Coach: Lozark

 

How will they fare?

GIANTS! Gaming have always been a lower tier LCS team, but have always performed well enough. This season the rift between the top and bottom teams in Europe has increased and so the Giants will have to battle even harder to maintain their place in the league. While they may not have the most star studded line up their team has always proven they are tough to beat, and this season they will hope to do the same.

Last season when GIANTS! Were the all-Spanish team in the LCS Xpepii was their star man. When his team started to lose games the mercurial mid laner used to put on a show and would often be the player people looked to as GIANTS! Main hope. This season should be no different as Xpepii will hope to help his team climb the league and solidify themselves.

 

You may have heard of – kOu (Jungle)

It is perhaps a little tricky to find a famous player amongst a team that is very much about the unit rather than the individual. The jungler kOu will be looking to make a name for himself at the top level having been on the outskirts for some time. Coming from Cloud 9 Eclipse kOu will be hoping to make a mark for himself and his team in the coming split.

 

Our Prediction: 9th

About The Author
William Whittingham
Hey there guys! I’m Phil and I’m a 19 year old from the lovely UK. I’ve always loved video games and can remember the first time I played Age of Empires on my mum’s laptop. This passion for gaming grew as I grew and went into overdrive when I found myself with money I could spend and my own computer and consoles. While you’ll mostly find me on the PC, either being shouted at in online games or shouting at the screen on Steam, I also have a soft spot for my Xbox One. My favorite games of all time include Crusaders Kings 2 and Thomas Was Alone.When you can find me away from gaming it was almost certainly not by choice. I’m currently still a student International Relations and Political Science. While away from keyboard I also enjoy playing football (or soccer if you prefer) and recording a podcast with some of my friends who should know better.I love keeping up to date with all the latest gaming news and I hope I can help you to do the same.I’ll see you out there!
