It has been officially announced today that Team SoloMid (TSM) -- one of the largest League of Legends teams around right now -- will be branching out into fighting games.

To kick things off, SoloMid is entering the world of competitive Super Smash Bros. The first fighting game player they have enlisted is none other than Super Smash Bros. Melee veteran William ‘Leffen’ Hjelte.

Leffen most recently took third place at Apex 2015, and is probably most well known for his tournament wins over the 5 Smash gods: C9|Mango, Alliance|Armada, EG|PPMD, Liquid|Hungrybox and Mew2King.

You can check out what Leffen had to say about joining Team SoloMid after the jump.
I'm extremely excited to join TSM. I've searched long and hard for an organization that fit me well and I can safely say that I've found what I was looking for. TSM not only has some of the greatest players and content creators, but more importantly, they constantly strive to do even better.

I feel like I've only been a step away from being the best for a while now. With TSM's support, I'm confident that I'll be able to take that step and then some!
