Former LEC Pro Vizicsacsi to Compete at 2021 Worlds For OCE’s PEACE
Here’s a bit of news that came out of left field: former LEC top laner Kiss “Vizicsacsi” Tamás (of Unicorns of Love fame) is going to compete at 2021 Worlds — despite the fact that he was retired from pro play up until a few weeks ago!
Funny how things work out sometimes!
“I’ll be playing at Worlds 2021! As it stands, the top laner for the Oceanic champion, Peace, was not allowed travel eligibility. As a result they were in need of a substitute and I have the honour to now announce that this substitute will be me! Looking very much forward to playing at the biggest stage once again,” said Vizicsacsi through his Facebook page.
An Unexpected Silver Lining
It goes without saying, but PEACE really made the best of a pretty bad situation. The news of their top laner being unable to secure a visa was definitely a low blow for OCE fans. On the other hand, they were able to find the most spectacular replacement imaginable: a bona fide LEC legend and former MVP. Now sure, Vizicsacsi hasn’t been competing for quite a while now but he was able to reach Challenger with relative ease and is still no doubt capable of trading blows and playing at the highest of levels.
Heck, his experience alone is more than enough to warrant a shot — he’s as big a veteran as they come and will surely serve as a boon to PEACE’s chances of making it through the Play-In stage! They’ll still face an uphill battle (to put it mildly), but at least they’ll have a seasoned veteran by their side leading the charge! Moreover, if Csacsi steps up like he did on so many occasions in the past, he could very well exceed everyone’s expectations and make quite a statement.
No one’s giving PEACE much of a chance seeing how they’ll go up against Hanwha Life Esports and LNG Esports, but even if they fail to leave much of a mark at least we’ll get to see this beloved legend back in action! And, well, there’s arguably no better way to mount a comeback than to prove your worth on the biggest of stages!
The Play-In Stage is scheduled to begin on October 5, so make sure to mark your calendar as you do not want to miss it!
