FlyQuest have locked in their League of Legends roster after several big-shot signings, with former TSM jungler Mingyi “Spica” Lu the latest to join ahead of the 2023 LoL Championship Series (LCS) season.

Although the franchise has spent a significant amount of time as an underdog in the LCS, it will be entering the new season with a roster of top talent. The new roster will see the team field a couple of Korea’s fast-rising talents, a top LCS Academy prospect and a few LCS veterans.

Spica, a former league MVP, will be joining forces with the well-known Jeong “Impact” Eon-young to create a formidable top-side combination. The move comes after an indifferent year with TSM, finishing in the bottom five during the regular season in two consecutive splits. Despite this, Spica is still considered one of the top junglers in the league and will work to regain his position among the likes of Robert “Blaber” Huang, Kacper “Inspired” Słoma, Can “Closer” Çelik, and Hong “Pyosik” Chang-hyeon.

Impact, on the other hand, comes to the team after a successful 2022 season with Evil Geniuses. He won a championship, and achieved a top-four finish at the 2022 Mid-Season Invitational, as well as securing a top-three finish at the LoL World Championship.

Additionally, FlyQuest had earlier acquired the services of two rising stars from Korea — the 2022 Rookie of the Year, and the most recent Co-Player of the Split in the LoL Champions Korea (LCK). Former KT Rolster mid laner Lee “VicLa” Dae-kwang will be joining forces with star AD carry Lee “Prince” Chae-hwan as they strive to reach the summit in a new region.

VicLa, 19, has been widely regarded as a top-tier prospect in the LCK. Despite his young age, he has demonstrated a fearless and aggressive playstyle, making decisive moves to secure victory for his team.

Prince, 22, was one of the most effective marksmen in the LCK during the summer season. He led the league in kills and contributed 38.4% of his team’s total kills during the season.

One of the most significant unknowns may lie within the support position. Bill “Eyla” Nguyen, who has spent the past two years in the LCS Academy scene, was instrumental in guiding TLA to consecutive Proving Grounds victories, and now has his sights set on achieving success in the top flight.

Furthermore, FlyQuest have enlisted the expertise of former DRX coach Kim “Ssong” Sang-soo to provide strategic direction for the team.

The complete roster consists of the new signings jungler Spica, top laner Impact, mid laner VicLa, bot laner Prince and support Eyla joining Philip “Philip” Zeng, who has been with the team since the spring.
