Dyrus Thinking About a League of Legends Comeback

by Matt Best

A fan favorite streamer and ex-TSM top laner Marcus "Dyrus" Hill is thinking about a comeback. Dyrus is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, still under the Team SoloMid brand. Dyrus is well submerged within the streaming community and finds himself playing "Squad Games" hosted by another popular streamer, Jaryd "Summit1g" Lazar.

During the stream, Summit asked Dyrus, "Tell me right now, are you better than the current TSM top laner?" Dyrus was quick to respond and said, "Well, I'm not better than the current one but I know I'm a lot better than most of the players in NA for at least my history."

What Dyrus said next, was completely unexpected.

"I'd probably come back for a game or two, we'll see."

Before anyone had the chance to think he was kidding, he then said, "I've actually given serious thought to it."

According to WWG's League of Legends Writer and Analyst, James Bates, Dyrus should really take a peek at who else is playing in the NA LCS before making claims like he has. "I'm not sure who Dyrus is talking about when he says that he's better than most of the current crop of NA top laners," said Bates. "We know for a fact he's not better than Darshan or Impact, because he didn't outperform either of them when they were in the league together. He admitted he's not better than Hauntzer, so that's off the table. I don't think any sane person would say that Dyrus is better than Ssumday, Flame, or even Looper, since all three of them have distinguished themselves more over the course of their careers than Dyrus could ever dream, so...Who is he talking about?"

Bates didn't completely shut the door on welcoming back a Dyrus return, but maybe for reasons Dyrus himself wouldn't want to hear. "Do I want to see Dyrus come back on stage? Yes. I want to see him come back on stage and get curbed so badly that he remembers exactly why fans of TSM made burnt offerings to get him off of their team at the end of his career. It's easy to talk tough when you're just sitting in solo queue duoing with Annie Bot, but NA solo queue is not representative of skill level at all, and I think a quick trip to the LCS as a participant will remind Dyrus of that in a jiffy."

TSM currently have a bye into the semifinals of the 2017 NA LCS Spring Split Playoffs and await the lowest remaining seed after the first round.
