Rating the LCS Summer 2022 Mid-Season Transfers & Swaps

Mid-Season is over, and the LCS Summer Split promises more of the same action we saw in Spring. We’ve had quiet mid-season in both the LEC and LCS. No major shake-ups in either region, and only bottom performers made changes to their rosters.

Lets dig through the LCS rosters and see how things shape up.

LCS Mid Season 2022

LCS 2022 Summer Mid-Season Roster Moves

Four LCS teams made impactful roster changes over the mid-season. Immortals and Cloud9 were the teams with most tranfers. For IMT it was understandable after they ended dead last in the previous split. Cloud9 finished fourth in Spring, but felt they can do better with a revamped roster in Summer.

Disclaimer: Not all teams in the LCS have confirmed their rosters, and they will not be until the first match of each team. Official announcements are taken into account, so you can consider those certain. New entries will be highlighted in bold.

100 Thieves

  • Top Lane: Ssumday/Tenacity
  • Jungle: Closer
  • Mid: Abbedagge
  • ADC: FBI
  • Supp: huhi

The thieves have not announced any big changes to their roster in the mid-season. Ending 2nd after Spring Playoffs did instill the team with confidence moving forward into Summer.


  • Top Lane: Fudge (roleswap)
  • Jungle: Blaber
  • Mid: Jensen
  • ADC: Berserker
  • Supp: Zven

Probably the impactful roster change in the LCS comes from Cloud9. After finishing 2nd in Regular Season and 4th after Playoffs, the team decided to make some radical changes to the roster. Zven has been promoted into the main roster as a Support and Jensen makes his LCS return in the mid lane. Fudge is returning to top after standing-in mid for awhile. Summit and Isles were both released from the team.


  • Top Lane: Jenkins
  • Jungle: Contractz
  • Mid: Palafox
  • ADC: Luger
  • Supp: Poome

Counter-Logic Gaming has not committed to any changes in the mid-season despite finishing 8th with a miserable 6-12 record. Maybe the organization is confident this roster can grow, but honestly I believe they have reached their limit.


  • Top Lane: Gamsu
  • Jungle: River
  • Mid: Blue
  • ADC: Neo
  • Supp: Biofrost

Dignitas re-acquired former OWL superstar Gamsu for their Summer Split roster. He showcased good play during Academy Summer last year and helped 100T Academy earn the trophy. After finishing 2nd in Academy Spring 2022, Gamsu, Wixxi and Kenvi all left 100T Academy to pursue bigger rewards.

Evil Geniuses

  • Top Lane: Impact
  • Jungle: Inspired
  • Mid: Jojopyun
  • ADC: Danny
  • Supp: Vulcan

We didn’t expect any changes from Evil Geniuses after they won Spring and qualified for MSI. Granted their showcase on the international stage was not stellar, but it was good enough for the organization to stick with the roster until the end of the season.


  • Top Lane: Kumo
  • Jungle: Josedeodo
  • Mid: toucouille
  • ADC: Johnsun
  • Supp: aphromoo

FlyQuest barely made playoffs in Spring, and quickly bowed out. However, this roster was largely formed in Spring and it was their inaugural split. I fully expect FLY to find their form in Summer and contest for the top four spots.

Golden Guardians

  • Top Lane: Licorice
  • Jungle: Pridestalker
  • Mid: Ablazeolive
  • ADC: Stixxay
  • Supp: Olleh

GG released Lost and re-promoted Stixxay into the main roster after a short stint as a coach. I don’t see this as an improvement and the Guardians might be out of Playoffs contention in Summer with this roster iteration.


  • Top Lane: Revenge
  • Jungle: Kenvi
  • Mid: PowerofEvil
  • ADC: Arrow/Lost
  • Supp: IgNar

As expected, IMT needed a lot of changes after a really bad Spring Split. Destiny, Xerxe and WildTurtle were all released and Lost, Kenvi and IgNar were acquired in their stead. This now feels like a whole new team coming into Summer, and while IMT seems decent on paper they might struggle to find synergy in time to salvage their season.

Team Liquid

  • Top Lane: Bwipo
  • Jungle: Santorin
  • Mid: Bjergsen
  • ADC: Hans Sama
  • Supp: CoreJJ

As expected, TL is sticking with the roster they built for the season. They still look like the best team in the LCS despite a poor performance in Spring Playoffs. If we predict one team we are confident will reach Worlds 2022, it’s Team Liquid.


  1. Top Lane: Huni
  2. Jungle: Spica
  3. Mid: Maple
  4. ADC: Tactical
  5. Supp: Shenyi

TSM is still going through a rough patch as an organization both in terms of team performance and insider drama. Former PSG Talon midlaner and superstar Maple is going to try bring the roster together in Summer. Honestly anything will be an improvement from their 9th place finish in Spring. At this point, TSM is better at Dota 2 than League of Legends.
