Liquid Summit: ‘Last time I was in the LCS, my team didn’t even go to the finals. That’s why I wanted to come back’

After missing the World Championship for the first time in four years last fall, Team Liquid reconfigured its entire approach to League of Legends esports.

Opting to go with a 2023 LCS roster that would prioritize communication in Korean over English, Liquid doubled the number of world champions on its roster by pairing star support Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in with newly acquired jungler Hong “Pyosik” Chang-hyeon, the latter of whom had just won Worlds 2022 with DRX. A pair of talents from Team Liquid Academy, mid laner Harry “Haeri” Kang and AD carry Sean “Yeon” Sung, were promoted to the LCS roster as well.
