TSM drop Tactical and Mia from LCS starting roster after Huni steps down due to wrist injuries

TSM have made three changes to their LCS starting roster following the decision of their top laner, Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon to step down due to persisting wrist injuries.

These changes include:

S0ul and Instinct are from the TSM Academy and will replace Huni and Tactical respectively. S0ul joined the TSM Academy last two months while Instinct has been on the roster since November 2021. The two players have no LCS stage experience and will make their debuts in Week 4 against Cloud9.

Meanwhile, Chime who just left Golden Guardians will take Mia’s place in the LCS. The support player spent the last two years in Golden Guardians rotating between their Academy and LCS rosters.

Furthermore, TSM have signed Andy “AnDa” Hoang and Colin “Solo” Earnest to fill the jungle and top lane roles in their Academy. Both players are no stranger to the LCS and the Academy as they’ve played with teams like FlyQuest, Team Liquid, Evil Geniuses, and Golden Guardians. They will join Mia and Tactical to help lift TSM out of the bottom of the standings in the Academy.

TSM also dropped Shenyi from their Academy team stating that the player “is becoming a liability” to the team’s development.

TSM’s changes may not come as a shock to many fans as the team has struggled to maintain consistency in the summer split. The team have only won two of the seven games played and ranks second to last in the LCS standings. Their win against TL brought back hope but they’ve not won any games since then. With almost half of the split gone, TSM must find wins if they are to avoid another split without playoffs qualification.

Additionally, even though Huni is out of the LCS roster, he will remain on TSM while he explores his future. He will also assist the coaching staff for the remainder of the split.
