Immortals: Return of A Legend?

Huni was a part of the 2016 Immortals squad that crushed regular split play, but faltered in the playoffs, so could a reunion be in order? It could be as Huni would be an upgrade statistically over sOAZ, who was awful this split. If I’m Immortals I take a chance on trying to sign Huni and hopes it works out better than Soaz did.

CLG: Can Lightning Strike twice?

In Summer 2019 CLG swapped top laners to Ruin and went on a run from to seventh place in the spring to third place in the summer. Ruin made Third-Team All-Pro that split and things looked like they were on the rise for CLG. Then everything collapsed this past split as CLG went 3-13 to finish firmly anchored to the bottom of the standings.

Ruin isn’t playing as well as he did in the prior split, but statically this split Ruin was better than Huni in a lot of ways. Even still, it might be worth it for CLG to take a shot on Huni and hope that with a change of scenery the top laner finds his old form. If Ruin can be retained as well I say CLG should consider bring Huni into the fold and hope lightning strikes twice in the top lane and saves CLG.

Dignitas: Staying Put

Returning to Dignitas might make the most sense if Huni wants to stay in the LCS. With limited teams needing top lane help it just doesn’t make too much sense to move on.  Even with his struggles, Dignitas is better off with Huni than Lourlo in the top lane. Unless the relationship just can’t be mended between the organization and Huni I think Dignitas should still try to retain Huni and hope it was just an off split.

FlyQuest: An Interesting Proposal

Flyquest had a solid Spring Split by finishing in fourth place. However, they did seem to have some issues with the performance of V1per in the top lane. In fact, the past couple of weeks we have seen Solo and V1per split time, so that top lane position is very much up for grabs.

I think Huni could fit in with this roster. If he turns it around he should be way better than V1per and it should help Flyquest a lot. The problem with this is both is that pesky import rule.

Flyquest has PowerOfEvil and IgNar as their two imports, both of whom were named to All-Pro teams this spilt. Benching one of those two for a struggling top laner would probably doom Flyquest to repeat last summer where they finished 5-13. Huni might be worth a shot if he was a resident, or if they didn’t have two imports already, but if he needs to replace an import this is a move t  pass on.

Return to the LCK or LEC?

Returning home to the LCK or the LEC is doubtful. At this point, I don’t think he is going to find a spot on one of the better, or even playoff caliber teams in either region. Plus, if he got a spot on a lower-ranked LCK team, he would face the risk of relegation.
