With a record number of on-camera talent, the LEC Summer Split will be narrated more diversely than ever before.

LEC announces its Summer Split talent lineup

The League of Legends European Championship (LEC) returns this weekend for its Summer Split, and it will boast a larger talent lineup than ever before. The league will have a core roster of seven faces familiar to the viewer, with a bunch of other on-air talent rotating in and out to complement the broadcast.

The core roster is comprised of:

  • Trevor "Quickshot" Henry
  • Eefje "sjokz" Depoortere
  • Daniel Drakos
  • Aaron "Medic" Chamberlain
  • Andrew "Vedius" Day
  • Laure "Bulii" Valée
  • Marc "Caedrel" Lamont

The LEC is also giving a lot of opportunities to a bunch of people who either have appeared before a handful of times, or have been casting European Regional Leagues before and now make their debut on the big stage. The guest talent includes:

  • Dan "Foxdrop" Wyatt
  • Alex "Machine" Richardson
  • Ashley Kang
  • Ceirnan "Excoundrel" Lowe
  • Mikkel "Guldborg" Nielsen
  • Jake "Hiprain" Matthews
  • Adrian "Jamada" Wharlton-Thorne
  • Georgia "Troubleinc" Paras

Though Christy "Ender" Frierson announced he had parted ways with the LEC earlier this year in pursuit of success in North America, he will be making a guest appearance in the opening weekend of the LEC. Riot Games has hinted at even more talent joining the action later on in the Split, saying: "Don't think this is the final roster or the end of our plans for the upcoming eight weeks – we have even more wild ideas planned throughout Summer 2021!"

Hullbreaker item to replace Sanguine Blade in League of Legends

The new item will bring split pushing possibilities to a range of Champions, as the stats are more generic than that of Sanguine Blade. This is the first of at least three new items which are planned to be added to League of Legends.
