As the landscape of the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) for the 2024 Spring Split takes shape, the newest entrant, Shopify Rebellion, has unveiled its roster for the upcoming season.
This revelation comes on the heels of TSM’s departure from the league after more than a decade of competition, and Shopify Rebellion aims to make a mark with a line-up that blends familiar faces with fresh talent.
Returning from TSM are Lee “Bugi” Seong-yeop and David “Insanity” Challe, who will assume the roles of starting jungler and mid laner, respectively, for Shopify Rebellion.
Coach Seong “Reven” Sang-hyeon, a seasoned figure in the LCS, is set to guide the team from the helm.
League of Legends veteran Kevin “WildTurtle” Yarnell makes a return as part of the roster, but in a different capacity—serving as a streamer and a substitute for the bot lane.
Joining Shopify Rebellion from their successful stint with Disguised during the NACL Summer Playoffs are Aaron “FakeGod” Lee, Tristan “Zeyzal” Stidam, and Tomio “Tomio” Chan.
This marks the comeback of FakeGod and Zeyzal to the main stage after a period of absence.
Tomio, listed as a substitute for Bugi, adds depth to the roster, and the team’s plans for integrating both players into the upcoming season are yet to be clarified.
The roster is completed by Ju “Bvoy” Yeong-hoon, a new face in the North American scene but with extensive international experience.
Although this marks Bvoy’s first professional collaboration with his new teammates, he has prior experience being coached by Reven.
The 2024 LCS Spring Split is awaiting an official start date, and recent announcements from Riot Games indicate a structural change, reducing the participating teams from 10 to 8.
Golden Guardians and Evil Geniuses have been removed from the line up, and while the impact on the schedule remains unclear, more details are anticipated after the conclusion of the holiday season.
