The player in question is Xu 'Lin' Ziyang, who according to LGD will be looking at becoming part of the team's active roster in the near future. LGD, who currently play host for a total of seven members will probably aim to replace their current offlaner Peng 'Icy' Weng with the former RattleSnake player. The replacement of Icy is not yet confirmed however, as LGD wrote on their Weibo that "the lineup will be announced after all determined, so stay tuned!".

Last year, LGD were placed in a similar position as they had to forfeit their direct invitation to The International due to swapping out a member of their roster after the invite had been given out. With recent results not shining for the division, as well as now switching up their roster again a direct invite to TI4 seems very unlikely.
