Last week Team Dignitas announced the signing of Team Coast players Danny 'Shiphtur' Le and Darshan 'ZionSpartan' Upadhyahan to the team's starting line-up. While Team Coast transferred two of its most promising players, owner David Slan confirms to onGamers that a new line-up will be presented soon.
"We will be announcing our roster in the next week, and believe it will be the best line-up in the Challenger Series," said Slan.
"We aren't going anywhere. The changes we have made were in the best interests of the team and the players. Coast will be a stronger team after these changes. We are already guaranteed the #1 seed in the quarterfinals of the Challenger Series 1, and look forward to reclaiming our spot in the LCS."
When asked about the status of jungler Joshua 'NintenDudeX' Atkins, ADC Apollo 'WizFujiiN' Price, and support Miles 'Daydreamin' Hoard, Slan stated that NintendudeX, Daydreamin and WizFujiiN are all still under contract through October 20.
"When our new line-up comes out, it will be clear how we plan to move forward".
Slan looks no further than Cloud 9 in building a championship team, which emphasizes more on the team as a whole than individual players.
"The key to winning in the LCS now is not just the talent of individual players," said Slan. "It is the ability of the players to work together as a team. Look at Cloud 9. Far and away the best team NA, and have been since they walked into the LCS. Would you say that any of C9's players are the most mechanically talented players in the league? Arguably, no. That is the type of team we will build at Coast; dedicated, team oriented players who will play the game at the highest level."
