Team Liquid fans can breathe easy. Finally, the Team LEC roster is coming together as everyone had planned, all thanks to their support player, Yo “CoreJJ” Yong-In finally getting his residency. So, how powerful is the Team Liquid lineup really?

The LEC has boasted much better results in comparison to the LCS throughout the last few years, which is why having some of the biggest LEC talents from 2021 and 2020 join a team in the LCS has got fans pretty hyped. Until now, we haven’t gotten to see the full potential of this roster though… thanks bureaucracy.

CoreJJ Has Gained NA Residency

On February 17, 2022 Team Liquid announced that their long time support player, and Korean native, Yo “CoreJJ” Yong-In received his green card, making him an NA resident. Thanks to this, the team is able to finally compete with its full roster.

Ahead of the 2022 season Team Liquid picked up top laner Gabriël "Bwipo" Rau, as well as jungler Steven "Hans sama" Liv. They also scored the lottery with former TSM mid laner and coach Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg. 

The only remaining members of the 2021 squad are jungler Lucas Tao Kilmer “Santorin” Larsen and CoreJJ.

Why is CoreJJ So Important?

CoreJJ has been an integral part in improving North American League of Legends by sponsoring multiple in-house events, as well as, giving insights for Riot to kickstart the Champions Queue which should also improve North American League.

CoreJJ is a main shot caller for the team and has even won the League of Legends World Championship back in 2017 when he played on Samsung Galaxy. He is a veteran in the esport and has a way to bring out the best in his team.

The combination of CoreJJ and Hans Sama is a scary one, and other LCS teams should watch out. Team Liquid managed to beat a strong Cloud9 in the second week of the LCS even without their star-studded roster.

How scary is the combination of Hans Sama and CoreJJ in the bot lane, while Bwipo gets wider and wider as the game goes on? We will have to wait until the next LCS weekend to find out.

When is Team Liquid playing their next match?

Team Liquid is going to face off against Evil Genius early Saturday morning. The game is scheduled for 0:30 AM CET. So, for any Europeans who want to watch their former stars play, you’ll have to stay up pretty late.
