Team Vitality revamped their principal League of Legends roster a bit forward of the 2023 LEC Spring Split by bringing in Elias “Upset” Lipp. Their help Norman “Kaiser” Kaiser broke down why the brand new AD carry improves their stage within the competitors.
The help outlined how Upset is extra vocal than Vitality’s earlier AD carry, Matúš “Neon” Jakubčík, and the way it was wanted for them to extend their stage, he revealed in an interview with Blix.gg.
“I think me and Neon – we got along really well, I think just in the gameplay perspective-wise we just didn’t match well together because we were both a little bit on the quiet side,” Kaiser stated. “Upset – like, he talks a shit-ton honestly. He makes plans, he talks about wave, he really likes to improve.”
This is a particularly necessary side for Vitality since they don’t have many gamers that talk “great English,” with each Kyeong “Photon” Gyu-tae and Zhou “Bo” Yang-bo being newcomers to the LEC.
Kaiser underlined that Luka “Perkz” Perković is a superb shot-caller, however it’s typically laborious for him to make calls as a consequence of having to mess around facet lanes. “I think Upset is really filling in that gap and basically giving us direction, I guess. I think that was really important and what we lacked last year or last Winter Splits,” the help participant admitted.
