In the new season, there were several team roster changes. This time around, T1 has moved Choi “Zeus” Woo-je and Kim “Asper” Tae-gi to the main roster. Other teams have made changes as well, such as Gen.G Esports, which retained Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk in bot lane but released Kim “Clid” Tae-min and Kim “Rascal” Kwang-hee. While some players were cut, others found new replacements for those players.
After spending two and a half years with CLG, Xmithie has left the team and is joining Team Liquid. Xmithie has been a crucial asset to every team he has been on and is looking forward to continuing his great work with the newly-formed team.
Eugene “Pobelter” Park
The League of Legends 2018 roster changes include Eugene “Pobelter” Park, who returns to Counter Logic Gaming as the starting mid laner. He replaces Lee “Crown” Min-ho. Park last played with the team during the 2015 summer split of the LCS. During that time, he won three LCS championships and made four major international appearances.
Jojopyun is a mid laner on the esports team Evil Geniuses. He is one of the top performers in the LCS Academy league last year and is a promising addition to the team. Although he has no previous experience competing at the top tier of LoL esports competition, he has the support of veteran figures in the jungle. The new EG roster will make its debut at the 2022 LCS Lock-In tournament, which features all ten teams competing for a $150,000 prize pool.
The League of Legends 2018 season has brought some significant roster changes. Several players have left their teams, and a number of new players have joined. Among the players leaving their teams are two first-string ADCs, and two alternate mid laners.
Jiizuke to Team Liquid
Jiizuke is no stranger to the League of Legends scene, having spent the last two years with Team Vitality and Giants Gaming. He also spent the past two years with Evil Geniuses. His success with Team Vitality came after a stellar run in the LEC, and he was a key part of that success. Jiizuke has a knack for split pushing, which has allowed him to dominate in games when the meta favors control mages.
SwordArt to TSM
TSM has confirmed that former Suning support Hu “SwordArt” Shuo-Chieh has signed a two-year contract worth $6 million. This will likely make him the highest-paid player in League of Legends’ history. The team is also expected to appoint veteran support player Soren “Bjergsen” Bjerg as their head coach. SwordArt started his professional esports career in 2012, where he played with teams such as the Gamania Bears and the Flash Wolves. Then, he joined the Suning team, where he played for two years.
Hirit to Cloud9
The recent roster changes in League of Legends have left fans wondering if Cloud9 is making a move to boost its challenger team. While the team has a strong team composition, they are lacking a leader and could use more shooting power. Cloud9 currently has nine players on its roster, including Hai. The team also features LemonNation, An “Balls” Le, and Yoonjae “Rush” Lee. Although this move is a surprise, fans are still excited to see how the new team is going to perform in the upcoming summer split.
Vander to 100 Thieves
The League of Legends organization has announced a number of changes to their roster for the coming season. Most notably, the roster is no longer comprised of only Vander, and the new additions are primarily centered around the support role. The squad will now feature William Cheng, Derrek Ha, Brenden McGrath, and Sean Bezerra. Although the changes do not completely overhaul the team’s composition, they do give them a stronger presence in the LCS.
