After several weeks of rumors and different reports, FlyQuest has officially announced the signing of Philippe “Vulcan” Laflamme as the team’s new Support for the LCS Summer Split 2023.

After FlyQuest came very close to qualifying for the MSI 2023 and playing an extraordinary Split, the organization has decided to make some changes to complete what they started in the Spring Split.

We announced this move about three weeks ago when the reports regarding this signing began. However, only a few hours ago, the organization officially signed and announced it through its social networks.

FlyQuest announces the signing of Vulcan

After several days of strong rumors, the North American organization, FlyQuest, has confirmed the signing of the experienced 24-year-old player Philippe “Vulcan” Laflamme. Incorporating Vulcan as the team’s new support player will improve the team’s performance in the Spring Split (which was very good)

FlyQuest has had a lot of trouble getting consistent support since the beginning of the season. At the end of 2022, the organization planned to have Bill “Eyla” Ngyuen as the team’s starting Support for the 2023 season. However, the player’s visa problems caused the team to start the season with Kim “Winsome” Dong-Keon.

In week 5 of the tournament, Eyla was finally able to enter the country and resumed his starting position in the team. However, the team began to notice that his performance was much better with Winsome, so they decided to include him back in the team’s lineup at the end of the Spring Split. Finally, with the team’s loss to Golden Guardians in the playoffs, rumors began to surface that FlyQuest would be looking for a new reinforcement.

What will happen with Winsome?

Now, it is very likely that Winsome will remain in FlyQuest’s lineup as a replacement player. Moreover, it is also likely that the player will get playing time in the academy team, as let’s remember that FlyQuest was one of the three teams that decided to participate in the NACL this season.

We can’t forget that Riot Games made some changes in the NA Challengers league, where teams were not required to have a development division. As a result, several organizations have decided to abandon this ship.

For now, Vulcan will be a FlyQuest player until the end of the 2023 season, as according to the LCS contract base, his contract runs only until the end of the season. However, if the player unlocks his great potential and leads FlyQuest to qualify for Worlds 2023, the team will most likely consider renewing him for the 2024 season.

Finally, Vulcan’s debut under the Sentinels banner will be on June 1, 2023, when the LCS Summer Split 2023 begins.
