Team Coast announces new AD Carry
The preseason roster changes continue: this time, with Team Coast announcing that Apollo "Wizfujiin" Price (pronounced wizfusion) will be joining the team as their new AD Carry. He made a huge decision, dropping out of University of Washington to pursue his professional career as he replaces Brandon "DontMashMe" Phan in the line-up. Fellow teammates were especially excited bringing Price onto the team.
"It was a really tough decision," says mid lane Danny "Shiphtur" Le. "We worked with a number of AD Carries, trying to find the right match for our team. Each player brought a high level of skills and strengths to the game. In fact, the decision was so hard, that we went back and forth about our choice. Team syngergy was greatest with Wizfujiin. And playing as a team was our highest priority."
"Wiz plays a very aggressive style," top lane Darshan "ZionSpartan" Upadhyaya comments. "We were also impressed by his positive attitude. This is a mental game. When you live with someone around the clock in a gaming house, you want a player who's upbeat."
The bot lane synergy appears to be looking good already. Support player Miles "Daydreamin" Hoard noted the new marksman is "incredibly mechanically skilled. I'm already very comfortable playing with him in the bot lane."
"In the end, the choice was unanimous," says jungler Josh "NintendudeX" Atkins. "We are all very excited to have Apollo join us."
"I'm really looking forward to joining Team Coast," says Price. "This is a highly talented group of players, and an organization dedicated to winning. Playing with the team over the last few weeks has shown me our potential. It is my intention to put in the work necessary to play my best and contribute my part to the success of the team."
With Team Coast already posting excellent results in the NACL, the future looks bright for one of North America's top teams as they hope to enter the NA LCS.
