Star of a large LoL team ends his career in the middle of the LCS season - after the conversion, they almost only rely on newcomers

Things are just not going well at Team SoloMid (TSM for short). After the former League of Legends champions only finished 9th in the Spring Split, top laner Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon is now out through injury. MeinMMO tells you which changes are still to come for the team.

This is the situation:

  • With a score of 5 – 13 and second to last place, the Spring Split already ended pretty badly for TSM
  • The summer split also started rather meagerly with 2 – 5
  • Now top lane star Huni surprisingly ended his career
  • TSM reacts to this by rebuilding the whole team at once
  • They mainly focus on newcomers

Huni resigns from the LCS squad

Who is the person you are talking about? Top lane star Huni started his official career with Fnatic in 2015 and has been part of Team SoloMid since 2021.

He is best known for his aggressive style and his sometimes unusual choice of champs and spells. He also became the first player at 22 to represent three different regions in Worlds: Europe, Korea and North America.

Huni is considered to be very versatile and also enjoys playing non-meta champions. The situation is completely different with this streamer, which despite the nerf cannot part with its darling.

Due to recurring wrist injuries, the 24-year-old has now had to end his active career. TSM thanked Huni for the memories and announced that he will initially remain part of Team SoloMid while he considers his future. They also want to support him, whichever way he chooses.

Resignation will result in further changes

Let the rookies do it: The void that Huni leaves behind will be difficult to fill. His place is set to be taken by top laner Alex “Soul” Luo from TSM Academy, but he’s not the only climber to the main roster.

If you’re already there, you can change the whole team right away, thought TSM. In addition to the change in the top lane, the position of attack damage carry will also be reassigned. Instead of Edward “Tactical” Ra, Tony “Instinct” Ng will soon deal attack damage for TSM.

Jonathan “Chime” Pomponio from the Golden Guardians Academy is to compete in support in the black and white jersey.

Actually, such changes in the middle of the LCS are rather unusual. It remains to be seen whether the newcomers can save what has been a rather weak season so far.

There is also a lot going on in the Korean League of Legends Liga LCK. Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok just clinched his 500th win and is finally becoming a legend.
