After the LCS teased earlier this week that it would be hosting a showmatch between “iconic” former rosters of Team SoloMid and Cloud9, the full lineup of players has been revealed.
The nostalgia-packed showmatch will see nine of the ten players that battled it out in the 2013 LCS Summer Split Finals return for an epic rematch on Friday. This sees the likes of retired former pros Zachary ‘Sneaky’ Scuderi and Marcus ‘Dyrus’ Hill come back for some LCS action, as well as current LCS players like FlyQuest’s Jason ‘WildTurtle’ Tran returning to their former teams for one game only.
Cloud9 will be looking to defend its historical honour and defeat TSM in a similar fashion to that 2013 Summer Split final. The lineups see just one change from the original ten players that played in the original match, with Andy ‘Reginald’ Dinh – now the CEO of TSM – being swapped out with Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani.
Here’s the full rosters for the TSM versus Cloud9 showmatch:
