"Time for Change" - Reshuffles in League of Legends Teams

Dramatic changes in Fnatic

Not surprising for the British organization: Adam joins the team, Bwipo is now playing in the jungle, and Selfmade is leaving the team. Will this be a boost, or will Fnatic be even more mired in defeat? Find out in the summer split!

Fnatic's roster for summer split 2021:

  • Adam
  • Bwipo
  • Nisqy
  • Upset
  • Hylissang

Team Vitality go hunting

The French organization decided to focus on young talents, so two EU Masters players joined Vitality: LIDER from mousesports replaced Milica in the mid lane, and SLT from BIG will play instead of Szygenda.

A significant boost for the roster is Selfmade's transition from Fnatic to the team. Oscar will have another chance to show his power.

xiye and Mark strengthen LGD Gaming

The former JD Gaming midlane will now play for LGD. As a reminder, JDG finished 5th-6th in the spring split, losing to FunPlus Phoenix in the playoffs, while LGD finished in 14th place with 4-12 in the group stage.

Mark, at the same time, moved from Bilibili Gaming. Whether he will completely replace Chance as a support or sit in the reserve is still unknown.

Current LGD Gaming roster:

  • Cult
  • Garvey
  • Kui
  • Xiye
  • Kramer
  • Chance
  • Mark

The organization has not yet announced the final roster, so we are waiting for changes.

SANDBOX Gaming gives young talent a chance

Howling and KingKong join the main roster

Howling and KingKong join the main roster

Howling and KingKong were transferred to the main SANDBOX Gaming roster from the academic. In the spring split, they, together with the team in the second division, managed to win 5-6 place. It will be interesting to watch young players at the highest level.

Current SANDBOX Gaming roster:

  • Summit
  • Howling
  • OnFleek
  • Croco
  • FATE
  • Prince
  • KingKong
  • Effort

Kirei will replace Gilius in FC Schalke 04

A jungler from the Netherlands added the S04 lineup. Gilius is inactive. You can read more about the replacement situation on the team's twitter.

It is sad to see one of the most experienced players sit around idle. We hope to see Gilius in Summoner's Rift again!

Current S04 squad:

  • BrokenBlade
  • Kirei
  • Nuclearint
  • Neon
  • LIMIT

Conclusion

These were all reshuffles in recent times. There is less time left before the start of the summer split, so there are not many opportunities for teams to change their rosters.
