The LCS is ever-changing so of course the LCS Rosters are too. From veteran players trying to submit their legacies to new up-and-coming rookies trying to make a splash in the league, there is always someone drawing in a ton of attention. So how do the teams stack up? Let’s take a closer look at the 2023 LCS Rosters!
The new boys on the block with an LCS Roster that has been around for quite some time. NRG look to quickly make their name in the LCS with some solid play from some fan favorites. Will they be able to etch their names down in LCS history or just be a flash in the pan? Only time will tell but here’s the 2023 NRG LCS Roster that will start that journey!
Top: Niship “Dhokla” Doshi- (Renekton, Jayce, Aatrox)
Jungle: Juan “Contracts” Garcia- (Lee Sin, Graves, Elise)
Mid: Cristian “Palafox” Palafox- (Orianna, Akali, Sylas)
Bot: Victor “FBI” Huang- (Ezreal, Aphelios, Kai’sa)
Support: Lee “IgNar” Dong-geun- (Thresh, Alistar, Rakan)
The 6 and now LCS Championship defending Cloud9 has been in the LCS for quite some time. With being around so long comes a ton of fans and quite possibly the most consistently high level of play of all the LCS teams. Cloud9 will look to grab a 7th title tying them for the most LCS Championship titles with TSM. With the LCS Roster they are fielding it wouldn’t surprise anyone if they could do just that.
Top: Ibrahim “Fudge” Allami- (Camille, Gangplank, Jayce)
Jungle: Robert “Blaber” Huang- (Lee Sin, Gragas, Xin Zhao)
Mid: Minsu “Emenes” Jang- (LeBlanc, Syndra, Orianna)
Bot: Mincheol “Berserker” Kim- (Zeri, Kai’Sa, Aphelios)
Support: Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen- (Lulu, Ashe, Heimerdinger)
After a lackluster Spring Split Team Liquid Honda will look to get back on track near the top. With the LCS Roster they have it seems weird the team wouldn’t just work but sometimes things take time. Either way, it’s always a joy to watch “Summit” and “CoreJJ” take the rift. Hopefully, the team can fully jell and reach their full potential.
Top: Wootae “Summit” Park- (Gnar, Aatrox, Jayce)
Jungle: Changhyeon “Pyosik” Hong- (Lee Sin, Olaf, Viego)
Mid: Harry “Haeri” Kang- (Azir, LeBlanc, Orianna)
Bot: Sean “Yeon” Sung- (Aphelios, Ezreal, Varus)
Support: Yongin “CoreJJ” Jo- (Tahm Kench, Braum, Rakan)
With the return of a Ssumday and the introduction of a new up-and-coming Mid laner all the way from Korea 100 Thieves look to improve upon a lackluster Spring playoffs. Can the legendary Doublelift and the boys in red make a deep run into the Summer playoffs and make it to Worlds!?
Top: Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho- (Renekton, Gnar, Maokai)
Jungle: Can “Closer” Çelik- (Lee Sin, Jarvan IV, Viego)
Mid: Lim “Quid” Hyeon-seung- (Azir, Sylas, Ahri)
Bot: Yiliang/Peter “Doublelift” Peng- (Caitlyn, Lucian, Ezreal)
Support: Alan “Busio” Cwalina- (Tahm Kench, Thresh, Rakan)
At this point, too much is unknown with Evil Geniuses for us really to even have anything to say. After placing a respectable 4th in the Spring playoffs the entire EG LCS Roster blew up leaving only Jojopyun as the remaining player. Armao a mainstay in the LCS has been listed as the starting Jungle for now but we really don’t know what is happening with this Roster at the moment.
Top: Mohamed “Revenge” Kaddoura- (Aatrox, Gwen, Jayce)
Jungle: Jonathan “Armao” Armao- (Trundle, Volibear, Sejuani)
Mid: Joseph “Jojopyun” Pyun- (Sylas, Ryze, LeBlanc)
Bot: William “UNFORGIVEN” Nieminen- (Kai’Sa, Aphelios, Zeri)
Support: Bill “Elya” Nguyen- (Nautilus, Thresh, Braum)
To say Dignitas had a bad split really doesn’t even begin to touch the surface. For a team full of players that have been around for some time the measly 3 wins really left much to be desired. Dignitas look to stabilize a bit with a veteran Top lane that has played in both the LPL and LCK with “Rich”. The good news is they can’t get worse at least in placing.
Top: Lee “Rich” Jae-won- (Aatrox, Gnar, Jayce)
Jungle: Lucas “Santorin” Larsen- (Rek’Sai, Trundle, Gragas)
Mid: Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen- (Orianna, Azir, Syndra)
Bot: Frank “Tomo” Lam- (Aphelios, Lucian, Ezreal)
Support: David “Diamond” Bérubé (Thresh, Nautilus, Rakan)
Another team with a sad Spring split, Immortals parted ways with their long-time Top laner Revenge and look to build around their young Jungler “Kenvi” LCS Roster with an LCS mainstay “Solo”. Hopes are high that development can happen and the Immortals may just be able to make a push for playoffs!
Top: Colin “Solo” Earnest- (Gnar, Ornn, Aatrox)
Jungle: Shane “Kenvi” Espinoza- (Viego, Lee Sin, Kindred)
Mid: Onur “Bolulu” Demirol- (Zoe, Azir, Vel’Koz)
Bot: Edward “Tactical” Ra- (Ezreal, Xayah, Varus)
Support: Erik “Treatz” Wessén- (Braum, Rakan, Nautilus)
After a surprising run in the Spring playoffs to qualify for MSI and an even more surprising showing at MSI GG are hot! While falling way short of winning MSI Golden Guardians showed a ton of growth that they can hopefully bring back into the Summer Split and make a big push to qualify for Worlds!
Top: Eric “Licorice” Ritchie- (Gnar, Aatrox, Renekton)
Jungle: Kim “River” Dong-woo- (Lee Sin, Jarvan IV, Xin Zhao)
Mid: Kim “Gori” Tae-woo- (Ahri, Sylas, Azir)
Bot: Trevor “Stixxay” Hayes- (Ezreal, Caitlyn, Lucian)
Support: Choi “Huhi” Jae-hyun- (Leona, Nautilus, Tahm Kench)
After such a hot start FlyQuest’s fall from grace was nothing less than tragic. With the addition of one of the best Supports in the LCS in Vulcan FlyQuest sured up what many assumed was their weakest position and will look to make a good push and make it to Worlds. Don’t be surprised to see an angry and motivated FlyQuest in the LCS Summer split.
Top: Jeong “Impact” Eon-young- (Shen, Gnar, Renekton)
Jungle: Mingyi “Spica” Lu- (Lee Sin, Sejuani, Jarvan IV)
Mid: Lee “VicLa” Dae-kwang- (Sylas, Ryze, Syndra)
Bot: Lee “Prince” Chae-hwan- (Aphelios, Ezreal, Kalista)
Support: Philippe ‘Vulcan” Laflamme- (Tahm Kench, Nautilus, Leona)
The time of TSM is coming to an end. TSM announced they would be moving to another tier 1 region in 2024. For now, however, the current LCS Roster will do their best to make the slot look juicy for any potential buyers. Can the boys give NA one last good run? It’s up to this last version of the TSM LCS Roster to make it happen.
Top: Kevin “Hauntzer” Yarnell- (Gnar, Renekton, Maokai)
Jungle: Lee “Bugi” Seong-yeop- (Xin Zhao, Lee Sin, Jarvan IV)
Mid: David “Insanity” Challe- (Azir, Corki, LeBlanc)
Bot: Jason “WildTurtle” Tran- (Ashe, Lucian, Caitlyn)
Support: Jonathan “Chime” Pomponio- (Thresh, Rell, Rakan)
