The League of Legends transfer market period is now in full motion throughout the entire competitive scene, with all regions now a week into this change timeframe. Every newcomer to an esports competitive scene has trouble looking for consistency, especially in the early splits. Today we will take a look at the possible running roster for a familiar face with a new administration, and a brand newcomer to the LEC.
If we are picky about it, Team Heretics isn’t the only new organization coming into the LEC for 2023. The other one is the Spanish native organization KOI, however, they didn’t buy Rogue’s spot, and both organizations decided to merge.
The squad as usual went through the Summer playoffs, taking the 2022 LEC Summer Split trophy. Rogue exceeded expectations by being the only western team to qualify for the knockout stage with a 4-2 scoreline in the group stage. The team would later get demolished by LPL juggernauts JD Gaming, but still finished the year as the best western League team.
KOI has yet to announce any of their changes for the LEC, but the one departure is pretty big. Odoamne is the only player of the 2022 Rogue starting roster out of contract for next season. Losing Odoamne is a big deal, but KOI still has its core for 2023.
- Top: Mathias “Szygenda”Jensen (Rumored)
- Jungle: Kim “Malrang” Geun-seong (Under Contract)
- Mid: Emil “Larssen” Larsson (Under Contract)
- AD carry: Markos “Comp” Stamkopoulos (Under Contract)
- Support: Adrian “Trymbi” Trybus (Under Contract)
At the end of 2022, well-known European organization Misfits Gaming sold their LEC spot to Team Heretics.
Team Heretics started their rumored moves off with rather unexpected moves. LJL top lane fan favorite Evi will reportedly be the starting player for Team Heretics. Evi has been with DetonatioN FocusMe since way back in 2017, so this region switch was definitely surprising for the veteran.
The rumors didn’t stop there though, as Heretics are apparently looking to sign another veteran in former G2 jungler Jankos for the next split. Team Heretics would search to establish the organization as an international roster, with their mid lane main reportedly coming from South Korea via Unicorns of Love Sexy Edition’s. Despite the team Switch, it looks like ex Misfits Gaming support Mersa will still join Team Heretics and Jasckpektra would be his duo in the bot lane.
It’s certainly a roster and org with a lot of question marks going into 2023, but nobody can deny Heretics have made a splash in the LEC before even playing on stage.
- Top: Shunsuke “Evi” Murase (Rumored)
- Jungle: Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski (Rumored)
- Mid: Lee “Ruby” Sol-min (Rumored)
- AD carry: Jakob “Jackspektra” Gullvag Kepple (Confirmed)
- Support: Mertai “Mersa” Sari (Rumored)
