After announcing the new top laner and ADC, Team Liquid has found themselves a new mid laner.
The rumors are true. Soren “Bjergsen” Bjerg, the Danish king of American mid laners, transferred to a different team after seven years. After spending most of his career with TSM, even becoming a co-owner of the team, Bjergsen will continue his journey with Team Liquid.
Bjergsen started playing back in 2012, where his first major team was the Copenhagen Wolves. Then he played for Ninjas in Pyjamas before going to North America to play for TSM in the LCS. Throughout the years, his name fused with the organizations. Bjergsen lead TSM to six domestic titles and participated in five World Championships wearing the black and white jersey. He became a co-owner of TSM back in 2019, and in 2020, when he retired, he still didn’t turn his back on the organization. Instead, he became the new head coach, helping the team to a third-place finish in the Spring Playoffs and a second place in the Summer Regular Season, but ultimately missing this year's Worlds.
A fabled return
After Edward Gaming lifted the Summoner’s Cup in the air and the offseason began, Bjergsen came forward to announce that he was returning to pro play in 2022, but not with TSM. The news came as a shock to many fans, but with some controversies revealed about the organization, Bjergsen’s decision was more understandable.
Team Liquid took the opportunity to sign the veteran player, and Bjergsen seems happy about this fact. “They really care about winning. Winning is their number one priority, and I think they show a lot of respect to the craft of esports and League of Legends, which is something that really resonates with me,” said Bjerg in the video announcing his signing.
Team Liquid signed Gabriel “Bwipo” Rau and Steven “Hans Sama” Liv in the previous days, and now they finished their Infinity Gauntlet with the mightiest Stone of all: Bjergsen, whose Zilean mid is feared across the region will finish their superteam. With these players, who can even hope to stand in their way in the 2022 season?
