With the transfer window ending very soon, the final announcements are rolling in. With this come announcements from several of the most popular teams in China. The announcements include Top Esports, Rogue Warriors, and Royal Never Give Up (RNG).
Top Esports roster changes
Zhang “QiuQiu” Ming, formerly known as Ming, has announced he will be remaining with the Top Esports roster for another year. QiuQiu joined the organization back in December 2017. The support player has been a vital part of the Top Esports roster throughout the years, alongside marksman Lee “LokeN” Dong-wook. However, on Dec. 14, Top Esports promoted the bot lane of their academy roster to the main squad. It is expected that Ying “Photic” Qi-Shen and Liang “Yuyanjia” Jia-Yuan will substitute for the main bot lane of Top Esports throughout the season.
This was not the only roster change announced by the team today. The support player Nam “Ben” Dong-hyun was also announced to be leaving the roster. This only comes hours after their jungle player Xiong “Xx” Yu-Long left the organization to join LNG Esports.
RNG promotes from the Development league
The Chinese Development League (LDL) plays a major part in the ecosystem of the Chinese League of Legends scene. Earlier today, it was announced that RNG will be promoting Zhang “Yuekai” Yue-Kai and Wang “S1xu” Kang-Can to the main RNG roster. Yuekai will become the substitute player for the mid lane role, and S1xu will be the substitute jungle player for the team.
JiangQiao leaves Rogue Warriors
After a disappointing season, Jiang “JiangQiao” Jia-Feng leaves the Rogue Warriors (RW) LPL team. JiangQiao was with the team throughout the 2019 season, but with limited opportunity to play and an overall very poor performance. During the Spring Split of the LPL, JiangQiao went a combined 2 wins, 11 losses in the regular season. He did not get the opportunity to compete during the Spring Split of the LPL. With this in mind, it comes as no surprise his contract has not been renewed.
