EU LCS 2017 teams: Updating midseason roster changes

Updated rosters and all the changes, right here.

Riot Games

The EU LCS 2017 Spring Split ended with a third straight title for G2 Esports, but it was an eventful split on the way. Origen completely collapsed (and was relegated, as was Giants Gaming), while Unicorns of Love put in a surprising performance to make it to the final. Misfits became the latest EU LCS newcomer with a strong first split, while Fnatic’s new all-EU roster recovered from a slow start for a torrid finish.

With MSI over, the spring season is officially in the books -- but summer is just around the corner. How close is it? The season starts June 1, which is close enough that G2 is giving two of its starters the first few weeks off and operating with a pair of substitutes.

We’re going to keep this page updated with every EU LCS midseason move, be it a trade, a signing, a retirement — you name it. This page will also include updated rosters for every EU LCS team.

All the way back until the start of the midseason, here’s every move that has been made so far, in reverse chronological order.
