Going into the Summer Season, mid laner Mickey was replaced by Insanity, but the team's performance barely faltered, and they finished 12-6 and in second place. This gave them a bye to the semifinals, but they were again upset, this time 3-2 by CLG Academy, and again missed the finals. V1per played in every game for TLA, but with Team Liquid being one of the top NA LCS teams, was never used by the parent club. In November, he departed the organization and joined FlyQuest as their starting top laner.
FlyQuest's 2019 roster, in addition to V1per, consisted of veterans Santorin, Pobelter, and WildTurtle, as well as sophomore support JayJ. Expectations for this new roster were not particularly high, but they got off to a 3-1 start in the LCS 2019 Spring. V1per was a pleasant surprise in particular, and was able to showcase his signature Riven onstage. The team cooled off after that, but remained in the top six. In Week 8, they clinched a playoff seed with an upset of V1per's former organization Team Liquid, then beat Golden Guardians in a Week 9 tiebreaker to take the fourth seed. This gave them side selection in a rematch against the Guardians in the quarterfinals, where FlyQuest initially dropped to a 2-1 deficit but came back to take the series in five games on the back of strong play by Pobelter and V1per. Unfortunately, the fun ended there, as they were subsequently swept by eventual champions Team Liquid, finishing fourth due to having a lower regular-season finish than Cloud9. V1per was also honored with the Outstanding Rookie award.
Despite FlyQuest's strong spring performance, they got off to a 1-5 start in the LCS 2019 Summer, prompting JayJ to be replaced by the newly acquired Wadid. Although the team would register a 2-0 Week 5, they would never be in serious playoff contention and finished the season in ninth place with a 5-13 record. Their spring performance did still give them a slot in the Regional Finals, but they lost 3-1 to Clutch Gaming, ending their season.
