How will the TSM roster change if both Doublelift and Bjergsen retire?
TSM mid-laner Bjergsen today announced his departure from the player roster of the League of Legends in his transition to the head coach role. Although the team is now attempting to fill the hole left by the Danish star, the roster would have seen a second player leave its ranks.
Following Bjergsen’s announcement, Doublelift said that after his teammate informed him of his decision, he also considered retiring. The AD carry said that “the team will never be the same without Bjergsen,” but he didn’t think it was right to retire after his Worlds 2020 performance.
This year, TSM has experienced one of the most disappointing performances. They became the first pool-one team not to win a single game in the history of World. While LCS’s first seed changes were expected after this performance, but no one expected the Danish mid laner or the superstar ADC to retire.
Doublelift later added that he feels it will be fine to retire as he might not be the best ADC, but he believes he is still the best AD carry of the LCS. “If I’m still the best ADC, I don’t really want to retire,” he said during his stream.
While Doublelift has been very successful nationally in the North American region, his international performances over the years leave a lot to be desired. Since 2015, he has continuously qualified for the World Championships, but never made it out of groups.
