LEC Roster Tracker and Rumours
Astralis Confirmed Changes
The only confirmed change for Astralis at the moment is that Turkish jungler, 113 has left the organization on October 23rd, leaving the team without a jungler. This leaves Finn. LIDER, Kobbe and JeongHoon in the active roster, meaning that we could see them play again.
- Finn “Finn” Wiestál
- Adam “LIDER” Ilyasov
- Kasper “Kobbe” Kobberup
- Lee “JeongHoon” Jeong-hoon
There have been no rumours about the team’s roster, but the Danish esports organization might sell their LEC spot after 2 seasons. They seem to have found a buyer in one of the most popular EMEA orgs, Karmine Corp, who were looking to buy into the LEC’s franchise system last year, but were unable to do so. If Karmine Corp joins the league, they would need a completely new roster – and due to the LEC changing the minimum age to compete to 18, they couldn’t promote their star player, Caliste.
November 9th: German ADC Upset is supposed to play for Karmine Corp for 2024.
November 10th: Chinese jungler Bo is supposedly leaving Team Vitality to play for Karmine Corp. On the same day, YamatoCannon supposedly reached a verbal agreement to be the team’s coach.
November 23rd: Karmine Corps supposed team is Cabochard, Bo, Saken, Upset and Targamas
Excel Esports Confirmed Changes
Excel Esports haven’t changed anything in their roster as of now, but on October 27th, they extended their ADC’s contrant, meaning that Patrik should be playing for them until 2025. LIMIT’s and Abbedagge’s contracts will expire at the end of this year, while Peach and Odoamne should be staying until 2024.

- Patrik “Patrik” Jírú
- Dino “LIMIT” Tot
Excel Esports Rumours
The one rumour about Excel Esports so far is that a new ERL midlaner, Jackies could join the team. He previously played in Hitpoint Masters for Entropiq, winning both the Summer Playoffs and the Winter Main Event.
November 12th: Ignar reached a verbal agreement with Excel Esports, should be their support for 2024
November 13th: Peach is supposed to remain with the team in the next season.
November 23rd: Excel Esports should field the team of Odoamne, Peach, Jackies, Patrik and IgNar in 2024
Fnatic Confirmed Changes
Outside of Wunder’s temporary substitute status ending on September 27th and a roleswapped Rekkles leaving the team officially on October 12th, Fnatic haven’t made any changes to their team. Even though they didn’t have an outstanding performance at Worlds, the same roster could very well be fielded in 2024.
- Óscar “Oscarinin” Munóz Jiménez
- Iván “Razork” Martín Díaz
- Marek “Humanoid” Brázda

KOI Confirmed Changes
While the roster of the team didn’t change yet, the structure of KOI has been drastically altered. Ibai Llanos, the streamer and founder of the organization decided to part ways with Infinite Reality, former owners of Rogue and current owners of KOI. This means that KOI is now in the hands of Infinite Reality, but there’s no reports of Rogue returning or a new partnership.
- Mathias “Szygenda” Jensen
- Kim “Malrang” Geun-seong
- Emil “Larssen” Larsson
- Markos “Comp” Stamkopoulos
- Henk “Advienne” Reijenga
According to LEC Woolo, midlaner Larssen might not play for KOI next year. The Swedish midlaner reportedly had a verbal agreement with KOI to extend his contract for the 2024 season, but has been exploring his options since the end of the LEC. KOI had an underwhelming year, which could mean that some changes are inbound for the organization in their LoL Roster as well as their structure.
November 23rd: KOI will return to the Rogue brand, should field the Szygenda, Markoon, Larssen, Comp, Zoelys roster
MAD Lions Confirmed Changes
There’s only one change confirmed for MAD Lions so far: Pad, the team’s Strategic Coach who helped the squad at Worlds as a Head Coach due to Mac not being able to attend the event has left the team on October 28th.

- Javier “Elyoya” Prades Batalla
- Yasin “Nisqy” Dincer
- Matyás “Carzzy” Orság
- Zdravets “Hylissang” Iliev Galabov
MAD Lions Rumours
MAD Lions had their fair share of leaks and reports in the past few weeks. First, there have been reports that MAD could join forces with Spanish organization Movistar Riders in a joint venture for 2024. Due to this, all the staff of the org has been allowed to explore their options.
In terms of players, two ERL players, Supa and Alvaro has been reported to reach verbal agreements with the team to be their new botlane. The Spanish players played for Movistar, which seems to confirm the merger between the teams. They reached the Grand Final of the 2023 Summer EMEA Masters earlier this year.
From the current roster, Elyoya seems to be the only one who is all but confirmed to stay. The Spanish jungler has been the centrepiece for the team for a few seasons now, and with the Spanish players joining, he could lead the charge to the top.
November 9th: Polish Midlaner Fresskowy is set to join MAD Lions alongside the other ERL prospects, continuing to sign more Movistar Riders players.
November 23rd: Myrwn, Elyoya, Fresskowy, Supa and Alvaro should be the Team of Lions next year
SK Gaming Confirmed Changes
So far, no changes have been confirmed for the German organization, but Sertuss’ and Doss’ contracts are expiring at the end of the season.
SK Gaming Roster
- Joel “Irrelevant” Miro Scharoll

- Daniel “Sertuss” Gamani
- Thomas “Exakick” Foucou
- Mads “Doss” Schwartz
SK Gaming Rumours
Movistar Riders’ 2023 jungler, Isma is reportedly joining SK Gaming, which would mean that Markoon is getting benched. Isma made it to the EMEA Masters Summer Final, and was expected in the LEC even last year, so it’s high time he joined the League.
November 10th: MAD Lions midlaner Nisqy is set out to be the new mid for SK Gaming, swapping out Sertuss.
November 23rd: Irrelevant, Isma, Nisqy, Exakick and Doss should be teaming up next year to play for SK Gaming

November 23rd: Zero Tenacity ADC Ice should join Adam, Sheo, Nuc and Labrov for the next season.
