The LCS broadcast will lose its biggest face in 2023

After quickly becoming one of the most popular faces on the LCS broadcast and competitive League of Legends, desk host and analyst James “Dash” Patterson will not be returning to the LCS this coming year, he announced today.

The 31-year-old said that “the new direction of the LCS doesn’t have a need for a consistent host,” which means that he will be exploring multiple different options of work for the next chapter of his life. He is, however, still in active discussions with Riot Games to see where he and the company can work together in 2023.
