Bjergsen Replacement Found: 100 Thieves Looking To Pick Up Young Korean Mid Lane
It came as a surprise for many when Bjergsen announced his retirement from the professional League of Legends. Now 100 Thieves has found a player worthy of taking his place in the mid-lane.
On April 7, Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg announced he would be retiring from League of Legends Esports after 11 years on the main stage. The Danish mid-laner joined TSM at 17 years old and has since then won a total of six LCS splits and two MVP titles.
For his former team, 100 Thieves, the news came as quite a shock as Bjergsen only told the team about his retirement plans one hour before it was made public.
Despite it being no hard feelings between 100 Thieves and Bjergsen, the team had to start looking for someone who could take Bjergsen's place in the mid-lane before the next split began. Finally, it seems like 100 Thieves has found someone worthy of the challenge.
Sources: LCK Player Quid to Replace Bjergsen
It must be challenging to find someone to replace Bjergsen, a player with lots of talent and experience gained through being a part of the scene for so long as both a player and a coach. However, 100 Thieves look to have found someone they believe is worthy.

According to Alejandro Gomis from Blix.gg Lim "Quid" Hyeon-seung has reached a verbal agreement with 100 Thieves and will be the starting mid-laner in the LCS Summer Split 2023.
Quid is an LCK player who has been the mid laner for Gen.G's academy team. He has also been a substitute for Gen.G's main roster on different occasions.
According to Blix.gg, several LCS teams have shown interest in Quid, but eventually, 100 Thieves came out on top and has now reached a verbal agreement with the LCK mid-laner.
100 Thieves finished 5-6th place in the LCS Spring Split Playoffs 2023. It will be exciting to see if the addition of Quid is just what the team needs to get further up on the standings.
