The League of Legends regular season is over, and Rostermania begins!

The 2021 World Championship may be just around the corner for two dozen elite rosters, but for most orgs, the long offseason has begun. That means team owners, general managers, and ambitious players are already setting their eyes on lineup changes and new teams for 2022 and beyond.


In particular, many are watching western heavyweights G2 Esports and TSM, both of whom missed Worlds this year despite star-studded rosters. They’re expected to splash big cash in the open market, and shake up the status quo.

Dexerto is expecting it to be, as always, a riveting League offseason. Here’s all the latest LCS and LEC rostermania news, to keep you up to date.
