Yesterday, Viperio announced three new signings, to complete our starting League of Legends roster for the UKEL Season 4. To recap, the starting 5 now consists of:
Note: roster is still pending UKEL approval.
We questioned Christopher Sword, Managing Director of Viperio, about his view on the roster ahead of the Spring 2021 split.
After weeks of trials, how does it feel to finally have a completed roster for Spring 2021?
“I’m very happy with how the roster has turned out. Alan, James & Grant have been working exceptionally hard these last few weeks to create a line-up which not only retains last season’s talent, but also welcomes new faces to give the squad a boost needed to reach the UKLC.”
“I’m really grateful for their input this offseason, and I’m happy for them that we now have a competitive roster. I know they’re aloo really excited to see the team in action just as much as I am.”
How you feel the roster compares to other line-ups in the UK, both in the UKLC & UKEL?
“The majority of teams haven’t confirmed their rosters yet, which means we can’t effectively compare the line-up against other organisations. This does mean we’re ahead of the pack however. With both UKLC & UKEL teams still trialling players, we can focus on roster development, both in and out of the server.”
“I do believe we will have one of the most competitive rosters in the UKEL, and one that can also contend with teams in the division above. We’ve built a roster with strong talent, so much that our players have caught the eye of slower UKLC teams still looking to fill their roster slots.”
After an extended offseason, with no winter competition for Viperio, it is clear that both the staff and leadership at Viperio are excited to see their roster in action. Christopher Sword is clearly happy with the roster he now fields under Viperio, but with teams in higher divisions showing interest in players, he’ll have to hope his roster isn’t changed ahead of roster lock in January.
