TSM still in negotiations for tier-one LoL return with org now aiming for late 2024 revival

The wait for TSM’s return to League of Legends goes on, with the iconic Los Angeles organization this week admitting there are no plans locked in place for its long-heralded region shift just yet, though things are still in the works, org officials say.

Last year was a tough season for League esports, especially in North America, where there was a player walkout to protest Riot scrapping the requirement for teams to field a second division roster and the departure of three teams, including Evil Geniuses, Golden Guardians, and TSM. The last was perhaps the most shocking, with TSM unveiling plans to join another tier-one region as soon as possible—a shift that is still in the works as we head into 2024.
