Team News & Roster Changes

  • [SEA] Winds leaves TPS and joins TPA. DinTer moves to a substitute position within TPA. Source

  • [NA] Nientonsoh announced his departure from CLG. Citing personal reasons combined with not feeling he is up to par with other top laners as the reason, he has benched himself with no team pressure. Check out the official announcement here.

"Xpecial was benched because of his attitude. After hearing feedback from the entire team, I made the decision to bench him. In this period of time, I hope that he will refocus and review his actions. League of legends is a team game; just because you have the best players on a team does not mean you have the best team.

I have always made my roster decisions based on the entire team's feedback and would never make a business decision because of personal reasons. I truly believe that everything I do is to benefit TSM.

  • [EU] SK Gaming Prime (SK Gaming's challenger team) has disbanded. Source
