Team Preview: GIANTS! Gaming
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.
Star Man – Xpepii (Mid)
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.
