TSM is bringing a wild card in for next season.
Today, news broke that Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon will be joining TSM for the 2021 season. He'll be replacing Sergen “Broken Blade” Çelik as the starting top laner. Huni is a very recognizable name in LoL Esports and a beloved personality.
Huni has been on teams all around the world. He had monumental performances with EU's Fnatic as well as NA's Immortals before moving to SKT T1. After leaving the iconic Korean team, he returned to North America, where he had mixed results. Sometimes he was one of the best top laners in the league, while at other times he was a very “coin-flip” player. He was most recently on Evil Geniuses, where he and the team looked okay, but definitely not top-tier. Regardless, Huni has incredibly high highs and will be an interesting addition to TSM.
On the other side of things, TSM did quite well at the end of the 2020 Summer Split. They claimed the LCS title and also the first seed at Worlds. Unfortunately, they had a 0-6 run in Groups and an ultimately abysmal showing. Afterward, Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg moved from their mid lane position to coach, meaning there were a ton of changes TSM could make. This is just one of the multiple they're likely to make and, while unexpected, has a lot of potential behind it.
