How does the Giants face this spring 2023 Super League?
The team, recently presented, is made up of Daniel Aitbelkacem ‘Scarface‘ (Germany, 1999), Phil Qin ‘Alby‘ (Netherlands, 2000), Nicolas Gawron ‘decay‘ (France, 1999), Amadeu Carvalho ‘attila‘ (Portugal, 1996) and Paul Lardin ‘stand‘ (France, 2001). This roster is led by Andre Pereira Guilhoto (Portugal, 1994), a Giants historic, who will be accompanied on the coaching staff by a European LoL classic like Oskar Bogdan ‘Vander‘ (Poland, 1994). The roster accumulates weeks of preparation and training, with rest for Christmas dates through.
“The league has a lot of quality and most of the teams have maintained their nucleus, we have a new squad and at the beginning we will be irregular. It’s a project of building the foundations, not to make a team win once, but to create the bases and foundations for the Giants to be a team that wins regularly as always. That is not achieved without growing pains. We are a team that will play magnificent games and others less, but a team that will not stop evolving. When talking about the regular season in spring, with the closeness of the level that there will be in the teams, we will fight for the playoffs and in the playoffs is when we will begin to see the project on the rise,” Guilhoto predicts.
David Alonso’Lozark‘, sports director, points out: “I think we are going to be a team that is going to go further, we are relatively irregular, but I think it is something that you can expect from any Super League team. We have a difficult start, Heretics and Riders are arguably two of the best teams in the league, also Fnatic TQ. I do believe that in the regular phase you will see a team that will go little by little; if we zoom in from the outside and look at the entire season, I think it will show a team that has improved from the first day to the last“.
Guilhoto, who in 2017 won a Super League with Giants and promoted it to LCS, the highest European division, ‘mother’ of the current LEC, returns home after five years in some of the best clubs on the continent and in the United States (Schalke 04, Origin, Astralis, Immortals, Team Liquid). “I have returned to Europe for family reasons and, in a situation in which I was going to return no matter what, there is no other place where I can be more comfortable. The Giants have given me my career and the goal is also that I want to give it all back to the Giants. High-level experience abroad allows me to give advice and opinions on how to do things. Giants have given me the career I have and I want to give back. that,” he explains.
