TSM to sign TheShy and Rookie in record-breaking buy-out bid
Invictus Gaming have agreed to a trade that will send toplaner Kang „TheShy“ Seung-Iok and Song „Rookie“ Eui-jin to TSM in return for $15 Million, League sources told TheShoutcaster.
The deal is expected to be executed as soon as the 2020-21 League of Legends free agency window opens on Nov. 16 at 7 p.m. ET. TSM and Invictus Gaming declined to comment.
TheShy has already spoken about a potential retirement earlier this month, saying he doesn’t want to play without Rookie, now it seems he has found a middleground by going to NA. TheShy should fit in perfectly as he has already shown signs of the North American „4fun“-playstyle in his previous games. Of course, he will most likely still clap every North American top.
Rookie on the other hand hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down, which makes me scared about the things he will do to NA mids.
Invictus Gaming is looking to rebuild the team around their strongest members, Gao „Ning“ Zhen-Ning and Ding „Puff“ Wang.
Both Invictus Gaming and TSM failed to show up at the 2020 League of Legends World Championship in October.
