posted by Tezzeret,
cn LGD-Gaming has officially announced the player that will be replacing cn Liu 'Sylar' Jiajun on the team. cn RisingStars' rising carry player (pun intended), cn Zhang 'xiaotuji' Wang, will be joining LGD. At the same time Sylar will be joining RisingStars, effectively a player swap between the two teams. A similar player swapped happened recently with iG and TongFu when cn Yao 'Zhou' Chen and cn Zhi Hao 'Hao' Chen swapped teams.

Both Sylar and Xiaotuji share similar history in the sense that they are both relatively new the the scene when they were signed on LGD. Sylar was originally part of the original World Elite Team formed by the legendary cn Wu '2009' Sheng. Seeing his potential, Sylar was brought onto LGD during the team's reformation by cn Ning 'Xiao8' Zhang. Now Director 8 makes the same gamble with Xiaotuji, time will tell if it pays off like Sylar.
