The world of e-sports has become more competitive over the years. With the rise of competitiveness, teams and organizations sign and change players in the hopes of improving and hopefully winning titles. The League of Legends roster changes every season, with some big names moving around every year. Some of these changes occur between rival teams, adding some drama to the moves. Here are some of the NA LCS rosters' biggest changes before the start of the 11th season.
Some of the changes to be made have such a big impact that they can help teams who are not even considered to be contenders win championships. These five changes are the biggest changes in the NA roster.
The first change is that of Eric "Licorice" Ritchie. He has moved from Cloud9 to Flyquest. This move comes as a shock to many since Cloud9 has consistently made the playoffs for every year, which Licorice has been on the team. He hopes to help the organization reach its second LCS finals.
Next, we have Lucas “Santorin” Tao Kilmer Larsen, who has changed teams from Flyquest to Team Liquid. The Dane changed the organization he represented due to him not being a fan of the idea of playing alongside rookies. He joined Team Liquid, whose members share more than 30 years of LCS experience.
Luka "Perkz" Perkovic has moved from G2 to Cloud9. Perkz leaving G2 has a serious impact on EU. His joining the NA side gives Cloud9 the best possible chance of securing a win at worlds. Perkz is considered to be the best mid laner in history, and his acquisition is definitely a major change to be taken notice of.
The next change is that of Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon. The Korean has joined one of NA’s most valuable organizations, TSM. He is an incredible top laner, and if he manages to surpass the language barrier with his teammates, they are going to be serious contenders for a championship.
Finally, we have the move of Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg. He is coming out of retirement to be the head coach of TSM. Bjergsen carried TSM to seven championships almost single-handedly, and any organization would welcome his expertise.
These are some of the most impactful changes to the NA LCS roster. We look forward to seeing just how these changes affect their respective organizations and hopefully result in some wins for the franchises.
