We are heading into the craziest LoL off-season to date

We are likely heading into biggest western League of Legends roster shuffle to date. After a horrid post-season for both the LCS and LECplenty of teams are likely rebuilding their rosters from scratch. To make things even worse, the best the west had to offer did not come even close to contesting the LCK and LPL at Worlds ’22 while being relatively dominant domestically.

We already have hints of some big roster moves coming our way, and more to come post Worlds.

TSM going for a massive overhaul

After a disastrous 2022 Spring and Summer performance, Team SoloMid is expected to make some major roster changes heading into 2023. The first casualty was TSM’s jungler Spica who had been released at the start of September. Despite only being promoted from TSM Academy in August, Tactical was also completely released from the organization.

With no immediate new signings following the release of two members, fans have also been speculating the organization may consider selling their LCS spot. A report by Dexerto earlier this year revealed insider information TSM had floated the idea of selling its LCS due to the game’s declining esports popularity in the region, and to save esports costs. This speculation has also been fueled by TSM’s lack of top tier talent into the 2022 Summer season, opting to instead field a number of academy players.

G2 Esports may drop Flakked & Jankos

While yet to be officially announced, reports have emerged that Flakked and Jankos will not be a part of G2 Esport’s starting roster heading into 2023. Both Flakked and Jankos have active contracts with the organization which are not due to expire until the end of 2023/2024. The same report reveal both players have been given permission to explore options outside of G2, meaning their contracts will likely be sold / transferred to another team. This news is certainly disappointing news for G2 fans, especially considering Jankos had been a pillar for the organization since the start of 2017. That said on a positive note, this means it is almost certain we will continue to see both players on the rift instead of being benched, albeit for a different team.
