Larl Spotted at Team Spirit’s Bootcamp on Instagram
A week ago, former BetBoom Team mid laner Denis “Larl” Sigitov was revealed to have been playing with Team Spirit in a scrim match against Natus Vincere (NAVI) on his alternate account, replacing current mid laner Alexander "TORONTOTOKYO" Khertek.
While it was mainly seen as a possible tryout at the time, it seems like the decision might be officially announced soon as a short video by team manager Ruslana "DKLana '' Berest on Instagram revealed Larl present at Team Spirit’s boot camp along with the main roster.
Larl rumored to replace TORONTOTOKYO soon following Instagram reveal
Earlier in the week, NAVI’s Georgiy "swedenstrong" Zainalabidov accidentally leaked details about his team’s practice match against Team Spirit on his livestream. However in doing so, he also leaked both team’s possible rosters for the upcoming season. The leak revealed that former BetBoom Team mid laner Larl was playing for Team Spirit in the mid lane, in place of TORONTOTOKYO.
Ever since then, there have been a lot of rumors surrounding TORONTOTOKYO’s future with the team. However, there might be changes within Team Spirit’s roster soon as team manager Ruslana "DKLana '' Berest recently featuring Miroslaw "Mira" Kolpakov doing pushups at the team’s boot camp. However, the video also revealed that Larl is currently at Team Spirit’s bootcamp.
While Larl might have been visiting the team’s boot camp as a guest or a friend, it seems highly unlikely. Additionally, TORONTOTOKYO was heavily linked to leaving Team Spirit after 2 years of service to form a new team with Egor "Nightfall" Grigorenko & Vitalie "Save-" Melnic.
As of now there is no official confirmation from Team Spirit regarding Larl’s presence at the team’s boot camp. However, seeing as how the roster shuffle season has been ongoing, Team Spirit might make an official announcement regarding its roster in the coming weeks.
