NA LCS 2019 season: Roster changes, free agents and more

Where is everyone going? Who’s moving where?

Riot Games

You already know that it’s the offseason, which means players are moving from their teams to find new homes. While a lot of players may have long contracts and they’ll be with their orgs for years to come, that is certainly not the case for everyone.

To keep things organized, we’re putting all of the North American roster changes in one post. We’re only including things that have been officially announced by the organizations or players, which means we’re not talking about leaks or vague hinting emoji tweets that some players might make.

We have all the teams organized, though if the position on the team isn’t filled, we’ll leave it blank. This might make some teams look overstuffed and some teams look really barren, but rest assured, it’ll all flesh out before the season starts. A list at the bottom will also show all the players who were starters for NA LCS teams in 2018 who are currently free agents. We’ll also include any information about where these players came from or if their contract was extended further.
