Toucouille is the new midlaner of the North American team, thus taking the place of Palafox.

I will join FlyQuest at LCS for the professional year, it is a project that I really like in which I believe a lot and I think I can contribute many things, we have things to build but I believe a lot in our coaching staff. and in my colleagues who are really good and experienced. It is a true honor to play in a major league and I am especially looking forward to meeting the best players in NA and would do anything to try and win there. I know the matches will be late, but thanks in advance to everyone who will be following my LCS adventure (and will hear the commenters trying to pronounce my nickname, so it’s worth checking out at least once, eheheh).

FlyQuest doesn’t necessarily have a season to live up to your expectations. After finishing in eighth place at the end of the Spring Split, the North American team closed the 2021 LCS season in ninth place overall, returning a record of 14 wins and 31 losses. Kumo and his teammates failed to qualify for the LCS Championship, a season-ending tournament that replaced the summer playoffs.
On July 7, following the announcement of Licrorice’s departure by Golden Guardians, FlyQuest announced major changes to the lineup of its five for Week 6 of the LCS Summer Split, as the team replaced their entire team. team. This change had a positive effect on the first matches, registering a series of 4 consecutive league victories, but the team quickly fell back on their pitfalls and went on to defeat. Before the start of the final week of the regular season, FlyQuest revised some of its starting five, adding jungler Brandon Joel “Josedeodo” Villegas and midlaner Cristian “Palafox” Palafox alongside botlaner Tomo’s toplaner Kumo and Diamond Support.
The 2021 season has been a disaster, and it’s time for FlyQuest to review the lineup of its five for 2022. According to the first rumors circulating on the web during these last hours, the North American franchise could hire the player from the GameWard formation, the French competitor Loïc “toucouille” Dubois. Considered a prodigy and one of the best midlaners in the French League of Legends League, Toucouille was awarded the title of MVP of the LFL Spring Split 2021. Now 20 years old, Toucouille has entered the professional scene just over three years now, initially under Beyond The Rift colors, before joining Made in France and Supremacy training a few months later. It was a few years later, during the Open Tour of the 2018/2019 seasons and under the colors of Izi Dream that his career took off, a season that ended with a coronation. This season was a real stepping stone for the French midlaner, allowing him to join GamersOrigin and set foot in the LFL the following season.
With GamersOrigin, Toucouille doubled and won the spring and summer divisions of the 2020 LFL season. Unfortunately, he and his teammates are unable to win against Misfits Premier in the 2020 season finals and finish the season in second place. In December 2020, he left GamersOrigin for GameWard; He finished the 2021 Spring Split in fourth place at the end of the regular season and fifth in the final standings after a 1-3 loss to Vitality.Bee in the first round of the playoffs. In the Summer Split, the team stumbled and finished only in seventh place, thus missing the playoffs.
If his recruiting information is confirmed, FlyQuest would be Toucouille’s first experience outside of the LFL league and within a major league; At the European and LEC level, Excel Esports would have been interested in the player’s profile, but that apparently didn’t work out.
