In an already difficult off-season, not just for TSM fans but for the entire LCS, Doublelift has now announced that it is stepping away from the competitive League of Legends. This doesn’t happen too long after Bjergsen announced his resignation and the subsequent move to the role of Head Coaching for TSM. While he hasn’t said exactly what he’s up to next, it seems like full-time streaming may be in sight for the former LCS MVP.
Doublelift had previously hinted on the stream that he had considered retiring with Bjergsen. This led many to believe that he would stay with TSM for the 2021 season. Then, as the off-season continued, it was reported that SwordArt might join TSM.
When it looked like this deal was in jeopardy, more reports came out that Doublelift was about to retire. This was due to his desire that TSM should create a team that could compete at Worlds, and in his view this might not be possible without top international support.
This unsettled deal with SwordArt had an impact not only on TSM, but also on Evil Geniuses. Originally there was a deal to include Huni with TSM in a trade for Lost to EG. Now that DL is stepping down, Lost will likely take over the new TSM bot lane.
That means TSM are still without a confirmed top or sup. It will be interesting to see how not only does TSM handle the rest of this off-season, but the LCS as a whole too.
