'We can make it to LCS' says Maxlore after leaving Team Infused for Inspire Esports

Team Infused’s ESL UK Premiership-winning jungler Nubar “Maxlore” Sarafian has joined Inspire Esports and will take part in the League of Legends EU Challenger Series tournament with them.
British player Maxlore joins four former Denial Esports players –  top-laner Max “Satorius” Gunther, mid-laner Sofyan “CozQ” Rechchad, ADC Pawel “Woolite” Pruski and support Daniel “Wendelbo” Wendelbo – in the new team.
And he believes the team can progress to the Championship Series.
“I think that if the whole team works together and works hard we can make LCS,” Maxlore said on the Inspire Esports website.
“The staff of Inspire so far has been super nice and they really respect what we need in order to succeed, which is why I decided to join.
“Inspire is providing whatever we need and keeping contact 24/7. They also have a great coaching staff and we will be having a gaming house which is really nice.”
Denial Esports disbanded after allegedly missing two months of payments to its players, reports The Daily Dot.
Maxlore leaves Team Infused after he helped them remain unbeaten during season 2 of the League of Legends ESL UK Premiership.
After winning the LAN final in early December, he joined Choke Gaming temporarily and won i56 with them.
By leaving Infused, it also means one of the UK scene’s best in-game partnerships is over: Maxlore and Infused’s top-laner Captain Alphari.
The pair formed an impressive partnership not only while playing for Infused, but in another team To Infinity and Beyond, which won the PGL Legends of the Rift tournament.
Ironically, during this tournament Maxlore thrashed Denial Esports (and many of his now teammates) while playing with To Infinity and Beyond.
It’s not surprise he has left the UK scene behind. After the ESL UK final, Maxlore and Alphari told us they were looking to join a Challenger Series team, but it’s a shame they haven’t stayed together as a pair.
We also understand there were other issues between Team Infused’s management and players towards the end of the ESL UK Premiership.
Earlier this week, we named Maxlore as one of our 13 exciting players from the League of Legends ESL UK Season 2 Premiership. Another well-known pro gamer to leave the UK scene is Choke Gaming’s numlocked, who has left League of Legends to join G2’s Overwatch team.
