League of Legends Worlds 2022 champion reportedly off to Team Liquid

A League of Legends Worlds 2022 champion is reportedly set to leave Korea behind for North America, and sign on with LCS side Team Liquid

League of Legends Worlds 2022 champion Team Liquid verbal agreement: Viego

The League of Legends offseason is in full-swing, and North America’s League Championship Series (LCS) is always one of the spicier regions for roster moves. According to a new report, this trend is set to continue as Team Liquid looks to add a Worlds 2022 champion to the team.

As per Blix’s Alejandro ‘anonimotum’ Gomis, star jungler and champion impersonator extraordinaire Hong ‘Pyosik’ Chang-hyeon has a verbal agreement in place with Team Liquid. Pyosik recently confirmed on stream that he would be leaving Korea due to being unable to find a team for the 2023 LCK season.

Pyosik to Team Liquid certainly checks out, considering the all-Korean roster the NA outfit is reportedly looking to field. The team has already confirmed the signing of Jang ‘MaRin’ Gyeong-hwan as its new head coach and, as per freelance reporter Brieuc ‘LEC Wooloo’ Seeger, Park ‘Summit’ Woo-tae is set to take up the other import slot.

With Jo ‘CoreJJ’ Yong-in set to stay, that leaves two spaces for NA residents to fill. Judging from a recent video discussing the team’s approach to roster building for 2023, Liquid will be looking to promote academy players Harry ‘Haeri’ Kang and Sean ‘Yeon’ Sung to complete a roster that blends veteran stars with exciting regional prospects.

Should the team materialise according to current reports, then Team Liquid looks to be a dark horse coming into the new season.
