The 2019 League of Legends season has officially come to an end,  and the race to secure the best talent is on for all teams across the world.

In the LCS and LEC, franchising means no relegation, but that doesn’t mean  teams aren’t looking to bring entirely new rosters into the next season.

Some old faces are changing, with new organizations joining both the North American and European leagues. Clutch Gaming are rebranding to Dignitas, OpTic Gaming has been acquired by Immortals, Evil Geniuses picked up Echo Fox’s slot, and Splyce are also rebranding to Mad Lions over in Europe.

For the coming season, LCS teams will be required to have a minimum of 10 players on their roster – enough to cover both the LCS and Academy teams – with a maximum total roster size of 15. LEC teams will be required to have 5, as their academy system is different.

Riot Games

The following rosters are based on those officially listed on the global contract database maintained by Riot, and include all players currently signed by each team. The rosters will be updated as teams make official announcements about changes, however, which may not be immediately reflected in Riot’s database.

The fact that a team currently has certain players under contract does not necessarily guarantee that those players will be on the active line-up for the following season. This article will be updated as and when new information about team rosters becomes available, including when teams confirm which players will be part of their starting squads.

Fnatic finally reveal Upset as Rekkles replacement in ADC for LEC 2021

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

Fnatic sign Astralis ADC Upset

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
