CoreJJ Will Remain with Team Liquid

Team Liquid did not have the season they hoped for this summer with the LCS "superteam." After the disappointing results, it looked like Team Liquid wanted to go for a complete redo at first. However, with the recent news, one of the core players from last year will remain with the team. 

At the beginning of the year, things looked promising for Team Liquid. The team had just signed a complete roster of well-known players from the LCS and LEC and was looking to, not only dominate the LCS, but also be NA's hope on the international stage. The 2022 roster consisted of:

  • Top: Gabriël "Bwipo" Rau
  • Jungle: Lucas "Santorin" Tao Kilmer Larsen
  • Mid: Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg
  • Bot: Steven "Hans sama" Liv
  • Support: Jo "CoreJJ" Yong-in

Now, as we know, things did not go as planned for the team, and TL failed to even qualify for Worlds 2022 after finishing fourth place in the LCS Summer Split 2022. Now, with the disappointing results, Team Liquid will make some drastic changes.

Team Liquid Rebuild for 2023 - CoreJJ in the Front

After not living up to the fans' expectations, the organization will try a new approach going into 2023. 

Similar to Evil Geniuses, who successfully built a big part of their roster from rookies, we expect to see TL having faith in LCS' upcoming young talent and having CoreJJ as a front figure.

CoreJJ has quite an impressive resume. In 2017, the Korean Support won the League of Legends World Championship with Samsung Galaxy. He is also a two-time LCS champion and was LCS' Most Valuable Player in the 2019 Spring and 2020 Summer Split.

This year, CoreJJ will have to find another duo in the bot lane, as it is already confirmed that AD Carry Hans Sama will join forces with his past teammate Mikyx and play for G2 Esports in 2023. 

When announcing the departure of the French bot laner, Team Liquid mentioned they were looking to do things differently, and we, therefore, expect most of Team Liquid's roster to be replaced. Additionally, Bjergsen might not only be leaving TL but also the LCS next year.
