Esports: "Keaiduo" on tough LCS debut for Team SoloMid

League of Legends mid laner Zhu "Keaiduo" Xiong has criticised himself for making too many "silly mistakes" on his LCS debut for Team SoloMid.

In their next match at the LCS Spring, meanwhile, TSM are 8/13 to beat FlyQuest, who can be backed at 6/5 to prevail.

Weakened TSM finish bottom

Visa issues meant that in the first tournament of the year, TSM were unable to field their starting roster with the TSM Academy side instead playing in the LCS Lock In.

They subsequently finished bottom of Group A and although it gave the Academy players some key experience, it left TSM on the back foot going into the first weekend of the LCS Spring Split.

And the roster's lack of game time together was clear to see as the team started the LCS with a 0-2 record, losing to Evil Geniuses and Dignitas on the opening weekend.

"Keaiduo" rues errors

It was a baptism of fire for "Keaiduo" especially with the mid laner having never previously played in the LCS or even at the top level of League of Legends competition before the weekend.

He showed glimpses of quality throughout both matches but ultimately failed to sustain it and believes his coordination with teammates in particular could have been better.

Speaking to Inven Global about the opening weekend of the LCS, "Keaiduo" said: "I feel a little bit bad about myself - I think I was not playing 100 per cent like myself.

"I feel like my coordination with my teammates could have been way better.

"In the first game that we lost, I don't think I played very well in the early game and in the second game, I don't feel like I played very well in the mid and late game. I feel like I could have carried that game if not for the silly mistakes I made."
