League of Legends transfer window is without a doubt one of the most intense periods of the year for all LoL esports fans out there — not to mention the degree of stress that it's probably representing for players and organizations.
From our side, it's pretty easy to watch the news and be entertained by the players' announcement, but from a professional perspective, this might be harder and more stressful than Worlds.
Especially when you learn that two teams are complete.
Owned by the Golden State Warriors, an NBA team, Golden Guardians made a spectacular recovery. After a terrible entrance into the LCS in 2018, they somehow managed to climb some places during the last year, but their performance was far from being terrific. With the replacement of their veteran midlaner Henrik 'Froggen' Hansen by the rookie prodigy Greyson 'Goldenglue' Gilmer, will they manage to prove that they can be more than a team from the bottom of the table?
The same question applies to 100 Thieves. In 2018, they proved to be a team that should be feared, but the last year was surely catastrophic. However, the Thieves invested into incredible players: William 'Meteos' Hartman is back with the team that made him famous, while Sun 'CodySun' Li-Yu and William 'Stunt' Chen will replace Zaqueri 'aphromoo' Black and Bae 'Bang' Jun-sik in the bot lane. Their new roster seems absolutely terrific — on the paper. WiIl it be enough to overcome the domination of Team Liquid and Cloud9?
Two out of ten teams announced their roster for the upcoming LCS Spring Split, but the transfer window adventure continues.
It seems that we already know the whole roster of Immortals, but nothing was clearly announced since most players are probably pending for Riot's approval. For now, the team coached by Zaboutine should include:
- Top: sOAZ
- Jungle: Xmithie
- Mid: Eika
- ADC: Altec
- Support: Hakuho
CLG, Dignitas, Evil Geniuses — these teams are still covering their recruitments with mystery, while it seems unlikely to see more major changes affecting Cloud9, or Team Liquid.
