Team Liquid has been very active in the past couple of days when it comes to adding new players to their League of Legends roster. Several of those moves have been very surprising for their fans and the latest one can also be placed in the same category. However, the latest transfer has not been officially announced by the player or by the team which begs the question what is the background of this transfer and how come nobody is talking about it?
According to the Riot’s contract database that keeps the record of all active players’ contracts, David ‘Insanity’ Challe has become the latest member of Team Liquid. Yesterday, Team Liquid announced that they have signed Joshua ‘Dardoch’ Hartnett once again but the transfer of ‘Insanity’ has not been officially confirmed.
The Best ‘Up-and-Coming’ player
Interestingly, Team Liquid’s player has never played a single match in the NA LCS competition. So far, his entire career was based on the competition in the North American Challenger Series. In the online gaming community, or rather Twitch streaming community, Insanity is better known for his nickname ‘InsanityXXX.’ Since he appeared in the NA CS, Insanity has been characterized as probably the most talented player in the entire region.
Acquiring Insanity is a part of Team Liquid’s effort to build a better team that could face some of the best in NA LCS. So far, that has not been going according to the plans, because they are having very bad Split. Currently, Team Liquid is sharing the last place in the competition together with three other teams. Because of that, it is no wonder that Team Liquid decided to make serious changes in their League of Legends lineup.
It can be said that the acquiring of first Dardoch and now Insanity are steps in the right direction but it will be a long time before Team Liquid manages to reap the benefits of these transfers. Without a doubt, Insanity and Dardoch are amazing League of Legends players and they will be a great addition to the team. However, it will take some time for them to get used to the new environment and change the practices of the team that led up to this moment.
Insanity and Team Secret
Before joining Team Liquid, Insanity was playing for Team Secret and their most recent appearance was in the 2017 Spring Qualifiers for the North American Challenger Series. Unfortunately for them, their effort was not successful because they were eliminated from the competition. But that was not a bad competition for Insanity because he showed some great performances which were noticed by Team Liquid.
At this moment, it seems that Insanity will be joining Team Liquid’s academy team but that is still one huge step forward in his career in League of Legends competitions. He is still a very young player and he will, without a doubt, get the opportunity to play in several matches in NA LCS which will be his chance to prove himself worthy of the starting lineup. No matter when that happens, the future looks very bright for David ‘Insanity’ Challe.
