NRG

Given that NRG just finished their Worlds journey, it’s still unclear whether they will stick with the same roster. For now, only two players have contracts expiring this offseason so Dhokla and FBI should be on teams’ watch lists. Korean support huhi has reportedly reached a verbal agreement with the organization, as he will be replacing the departing IgNar.

Golden Guardians & Cloud9

Golden Guardians will no longer field an LCS team following their announcement of leaving the LCS and putting focus on their basketball efforts.

Cloud9 instead will be making two changes in their roster, with Jojopyun and Vulcan joining the C9 squad, with the other three staying. Zven and EMENES are the two to have left the organization.

TL & FlyQuest & EG

Team Liquid has officially announced its 2024 roster. The org decided to keep the mid and bot lane trio for another year while bringing in Impact and jungler UmTi from the LCK.

FlyQuest looks like it will go for a complete rebuild. Aside from Impact, FlyQuest departed with the Korean duo of VicLa and Prince, as well as Vulcan.

The ADC role will be covered by FLY’s academy ADC Fahad “Massu” Abdulmalek, with former TL top laner Bwipo coming to the roster. The jungle role will be occupied by former EG jungler Inspired, and Busio is set to join from 100T. Jensen will fill the missing piece in the mid lane.

EG, instead, have decided to quit the LCS just like Golden Guardians did, lowering the number of participants to 8.

  • Jng: UmTi

100 Thieves

100 Thieves have decided to give more room to young domestic talents, picking up Eyla and Meech and promoting Sniper. Alongside these three talents, the org will rely on Korean imports River and Quid.

This roster is confirmed following the departure of all players and Doublelift’s retirement.

100 Thieves

  • Top: Sniper 
  • Jng: River
  • Mid: Quid – contract expiring November 2024

  • Supp: Eyla 

Dignitas, Immortals & Shopify Rebellion

Dignitas is also going for a rebuild: three of the five players have already left the organization and mid-laner Jensen is set to leave as well, according to Sheep Esports.

Top laner Rich is the only returning player with a contract running until 2025. The organization confirmed the signing of jungler eXyu and Dove, who previously played on Invictus Gaming. According to Sheep Esports, bot laner Tomo will be the starting player, leaving the support role to be filled.

Immortals also are going for a major lineup change. Tactical is the only player who got his contract extended. The rest of the roster willl be filled by Armao, and three Korean players: Castle, Mask, and Olleh. While it’s not an insane roster on paper, it can be an intriguing combination.

To round off, we have Shopify Rebellion, who retained the entire TSM squad after purchasing their slot. According to Sheep Esports, the org will retain the top side and bring in a new bot lane formed by Bvoy and Zeyzal. The former spent the last 3 years in South America between CBLOL and LLA.

LCS 2022/23 Rosters Shuffle Tracker / Breakdown

Team Liquid

Team Liquid have had one of the worst results in their recent history, especially considering the investment made in 2022. The super team experiment failed and as a result, TL will no longer spend big. There are rumors that some academy players will be promoted, but none have been confirmed. The only returning member from the 2022 roster will be CoreJJ. Bwipo was allowed to explore his options while Hans Sama has already left the organization in September. Bjergsen also parted ways with TL on Nov. 11. Currently, they are the most cryptic of the lot in terms of figuring out what the 2023 roster will look like.

Evil Geniuses & Cloud9

EG have quite a lot of players that have contracts running until the future years. Impact, Inspired, jojopyun and Vulcan are all under contract until 2024, according to the GCD.

The only certainty is that we won’t see Danny playing for EG in 2023 and with Kaori reaching a verbal agreement to play in Europe, EG will have to look for a new ADC. Some have speculated that Impact might also be swapped out, but there are no rumors regarding EG’s top laner yet.

The only major rumor from the team that circulated was the new mid laner that would come in Jensen’s place. According to Alejandro Gomis, it will be Diplex, the German mid laner who played in Vitality.Bee in 2022. With him, former Gen.G Academy mid laner Jang “EMENES” Min-soo will play for the academy team, with the probably of swapping the two during the season.

Meanwhile, Cloud9’s boss Jack Etienne have announced that both the Academy and the LCS rosters have been locked in for 2023.

TSM

TSM have officially lost Spica in the jungle and have also released the whole academy team. The team is looking to rebuild its roster but according to Travis Gafford, the team will retain Solo, Maple and Chime from the 2022 roster.

Therefore, the organization will likely have to look for a jungle and an ADC, but there are no confirmation on who might become a starting player for TSM.

100 Thieves

The thieves are looking to go for the “super team”, similarly to what TL did last year. Closer and Abbeddagge are set to become free agents according to LEC Wooloo, while Travis Gafford mentioned that 100T was planning on bringing in Spica, Bjergsen and Doublelift who would return to the professional scene.

Having said that, former MAD Lions ADC Unf0rgiven is also rumored to join the organization together with support player Busio who is set to be promoted from the academy. Ssumday is set to remain on the team but academy top laner Tenacity might dethrone him in 2023. Another important thing worth mentioning is head coach Reapered leaving the organization.

  • Supp: Busio (source: Alejandro Gomis)

Dignitas, Immortals, CLG & FlyQuest still waiting to make moves

As for the other teams, there aren’t many rumors. European mid laners Blue from Dignitas and toucouille from Flyquest have both left their own organizations. The first is a free agent while the French mid laner is set to return to Europe and play for Team GO in the LFL. Most players have contracts running until 2023 or 2024 so many might remain on their team. All CLG players have contracts at least until 2023, so the team might remain the same.
