LoL: Roster Announcement for 2016
17th December 2015
exceL eSports would like to welcome its new League of Legends roster into the xL family. Fresh off a 5th place finish at Multiplay’s i56 and a win at the intermediate tournament the roster is striving for even better performances heading into 2016!
At the helm of the new team is Ryan “Barnetto” Barnett, an experienced support player and vocal team captain;
“Me and the team are super excited to be joining the xL family. Coming off the back of our first LAN we were a little disappointed not to get top 4 but a final placement of 5th in the main tournament and 1st in the intermediate secures us a ticket to [Multiplay] i57. Going forward, we hope to requalify for the ESL premiership and break into the top 4 position at i57. I'd like to thank Rift for supporting us up until now, Joel for making our move so effortless and the team for constantly performing and putting the hours in to practice. [We] look forward to playing under the xL brand!”
Rounding out the roster are four fantastic high level players from UK league of legends, the full roster is as follows;
- Kieran "Keys" John | Top Lane
- Serge "Skudzy" Huleani | Jungle
- Reece "Reecicle" Sharratt | Mid Lane
- Jamie "Wing" Duell | Marksman
- Ryan "Barnetto" Barnett | Support
The team will be looking to make their mark coming into 2016 by re-qualifying for the ESL premiership and with tickets for Multiplay’s i57 already in the bag we look forward to seeing them compete under the xL brand.
Finally, exceL eSports would like to clarify their position with regards to the forthcoming season of the ESL premiership; due to our previous roster being unable to compete during the group stages of the second season xL has forfeited their spot in the relegation tournaments and will have to requalify in the upcoming tournament early in 2016. We have every faith in our new roster and will be supporting them every step of the way!
