Team Heretics has confirmed significant changes to their League of Legends EMEA Championship (LEC) roster, sparking mixed reactions from fans and pundits alike.

In a detailed video announcement, the Spanish organization revealed the adjustments to their line-up for the upcoming Spring Season.

The team’s moves include signing Adrian ‘Trymbi’ Trybus as the new support, replacing Norman ‘Kaiser’ Kaiser, and promoting Artur ‘Zwyroo’ Trojan from the academy team to take the place of the veteran mid laner Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković.

The decision to overhaul the roster stems from reported leadership and communication issues within the team, although previous speculation hinted at tensions between players and Heretics management.

Fans expressed dissatisfaction with the changes and criticized the organization’s reasoning behind them.

Notably, former pro League of Legends player and current streamer Marc Robert ‘Caedrel’ Lamont questioned the management’s explanation, particularly regarding the replacement of Perkz with an academy player and the assertion of communication improvement.

Heretics’ leadership, including Chief Gaming Officer Arnau Vidal and League of Legends GM Alvar ‘Araneae’ Martín Aleñar, attempted to justify the moves in the video announcement.

However, fans found the explanations peculiar and raised doubts about the foresight and decision-making process.

Despite the backlash, Heretics remains determined to improve their performance, aiming for international play at the Mid-Season Invitational and seeking to surpass their previous seventh-place finish in the Winter Split.

Following a disappointing Winter Split, Heretics is embarking on a new chapter with significant roster changes.

The coaching staff announced Perkz’s benching in favor of Zwyroo, citing a lack of improvement in team dynamics during scrims.

Additionally, Trymbi joins the team as the new support, bringing leadership and experience from his tenure with Rogue and Fnatic.

Zwyroo faces high expectations as he steps into Perkz’s shoes, tasked with not only filling a legendary player’s role but also elevating the team’s performance.

Despite his relative inexperience at the LEC level, Zwyroo is already making strides in motivating his teammates during practice sessions, according to coach Araneae.

With a blend of veteran presence and fresh talent, Heretics aims to revitalize their LEC campaign and regain momentum for the upcoming Spring Split.

Only time will tell if these changes will lead to the desired improvements and a resurgence for the Spanish organization on the competitive stage.
