Team Liquid’s head coach Jatt says Alphari’s benching ‘was not a spur of the moment decision,’ was considered over the past month

Published

on

It’s been a busy month for LCS fans after two of the league’s top teams made some baffling roster moves to start the 2021 Summer Split. One of the more recent moves came from the Team Liquid camp, where the coaching staff made the decision to bench Alphari after the team’s first game this past weekend for TL Academy top laner Jenkins.

During an interview with Travis Gafford, the team’s head coach Jatt said the Alphari move “was not a spur of the moment decision” like many people thought and that it was actually a choice that was considered over the past month.

He also wanted to ensure fans that “nothing crazy happened” behind the scenes with the team and said he just believed that starting Jenkins was the right decision for the remainder of the weekend. No other information was given on the subject, like how long people should expect Alphari to be out of the main roster.

Later on, however, Alphari made a cryptic tweet that was seemingly directed toward Jatt’s comments in the Gafford interview, with the top laner poking fun at the situation by comparing it to him ordering food. He even doubled down on the situation by saying, “there’s one thing in this world I will NOT stand by and be silent about—and that’s my undying passion for fast food.”

There are still plenty of people who are skeptical about the nature of Alphari’s benching, including former TSM superstar AD carry Doublelift, who thinks that Liquid is “running it down” if they don’t start him due to his incredible stats and impact on the game. But there isn’t enough information and too much speculation on what could have occurred, especially with how sudden the change was with the team.

It’s unclear if Liquid will stick with Jenkins on the LCS squad for week two, especially after the team went 1-2 to open up the season. They have matches against Dignitas, Evil Geniuses, and Immortals this week and they need to pick up some kind of steam as the rest of the summer rages on to Worlds.

You can catch all the action when the LCS continues on Friday, June 11.

Dignitas benches Dardoch, promotes Akaadian to LCS starting jungler

Published

on

Dignitas, who lost to last-place Golden Guardians tonight, have benched Dardoch and will insert Akaadian into the lineup as the team’s jungler for their match tomorrow against TSM.

With the loss to GG, a team that have won three of their six matches this season during the first three weeks of the LCS Summer Split, Dignitas are now 3-4 in the split and 14-11 overall. The team began the split with two consecutive wins before losing to 100 Thieves and Team Liquid. DIG rebounded with a victory against Immortals before suffering a quick loss to Cloud9 to end the second week of competition.

Although the loss is a blow to the team, they still are in control of fifth place in the 10-team league. They remain one game ahead of EG and four games ahead of seventh-place Immortals, which should give DIG fans more comfort for the team’s chances to qualify for the 2021 LCS Championship, which accepts the top eight teams come August.

In tonight’s loss to the Guardians, Dardoch, who played Rumble against Iconic’s Diana, finished the 35-minute game with a 4/4/8 scoreline and 2,000 gold behind Iconic. Among LCS junglers, Dardoch ranks first in kill participation, kill share, and gold share so far in the Summer Split. He ranks sixth in the league in K/DA.

Akaadian has played exclusively for Dignitas’ Academy League team for the past year. He last played in the LCS on June 28, 2020, when Dignitas lost to Evil Geniuses. He was replaced by Dardoch, who joined the team after a tumultuous split from TSM in which TSM president Leena Xu was overheard saying “no one [wanted] to pick up” Dardoch.

Dignitas play TSM tomorrow at 6pm CT in an important match for both teams. A win for Dignitas could stablize the team for the time being, while TSM, who are tied for first place, could gain full control over the top spot in the league with a win and C9 loss to Immortals.

Shiny Yanma Pokémon GO: How to Catch

The Shiny Yanma in Pokémon GO is one that many trainers have their sights set on catching at the moment thanks to the brand new Summer Solstice event.

“To celebrate the days getting longer in one hemisphere and the nights following suit in the other, Pokémon GO’s solstice-themed event has returned. Depending on which hemisphere of the world trainers are playing in, they’ll be able to encounter and catch different Pokémon during the event.”

Shiny Yanma has been catchable for a while, but now it will be easier during the event.

As mentioned above, the specific Pokémon that trainers will be able to catch depends on what hemisphere they’re located in.

At the moment, Shiny Yanmas can only encountered in the wild by trainers in the northern hemisphere, along with Chimchar, Summer Form Deerling and more.

On the other hand, trainers in the southern hemisphere will have the opportunity to encounter Pokémon such as Snorunt, Snover, Winter Form Deerling.

Globally, all trainers will be able to encounter Lunatone, Solrock, Spheal and more in the wild.

Of course, actually finding a Shiny Yanma will take a lot of patience and luck, but at least trainers will now know if they have a chance in the first place.

The Summer Solstice event ends Sunday, June 20 at 8 p.m. local time.
