Splyce have signed UK League of Legends talent Raymond “kaSing” Tsang.
He’s joined the org as their support player for the 2018 season and will participate in the EU LCS, pending Riot approval, as announced in this post on the Splyce website.
The other players in the Splyce roster include Romanians Xerxe (jungler), Odoamne (top-laner) and Nisqy (mid-laner), as well as Danish ADC Kobbe.
KaSing has top-level League of Legends experience, having played for the likes of H2k and Team Vitality in the past, and taken part in Worlds.
Super happy to announce that I will play within the EU LCS under @Splyce. Sorry for ghosting from social media for the past weeks as I was very depressed about my complicated situation. However, lets change that and make 2018 a great year 😀 thank you all for the support!

KaSing is not the only UK teammate on Splyce.
Head coach Peter Dun is also from the UK. He also has plenty of experience in League of Legends, having been a part of a few teams in China (one of which was Catastrophic Cruel Memories, which later became Invictus Gaming).
Peter is also a qualified football coach and brings a traditional sporting mindset across to esports. He joined Splyce in November.
Former UK scene manager Grant “Grievance” Rousseau also joined Splyce as their new European director of esports and League of Legends manager back in September, following a stint with CLG in the States.
Grievance said: “The signing of kaSing was a no brainer. He brings vast amounts of experience and skill from both the LCS and the international level with Worlds experience, while still demonstrating the potential for more growth.
“His class will not only fit in well with the team, but also bring out the best in Kobbe as a duo, as they match each other in personality and style. I am glad he has the opportunity to show his capability once again in the LCS with Splyce.”
Dom is an award-winning writer who graduated from Bournemouth University with a 2:1 degree in Multi-Media Journalism in 2007.
As a long-time gamer having first picked up the NES controller in the late ’80s, he has written for a range of publications including GamesTM, Nintendo Official Magazine, industry publication MCV as well as Riot Games and others. He worked as head of content for the British Esports Association up until February 2021, when he stepped back to work full-time on Esports News UK and as an esports consultant helping brands and businesses better understand the industry.
