This particular LEC split will be rather interesting since we have a new team joining the battle, after the exit of Schalke 04 and the acquisition by Team BDS. More so, since the team has signed one of the best coaches in the LEC, G2 Esports’ former coach Grabbz. In addition, we have major roster changes in some of the league’s best teams like G2 Esports, which changes its 3 out of 5 members, keeping only Jankos and Caps. Fnatic and Vitality are also making huge roster changes while we still have to see what the rosters for MAD Lions and Rogue will be like at the start of the split.
