100 Thieves announced the last addition to their League Of Legends 2020 roster in former Bombers player Tommy “ry0ma” Le, who will be joining as a mid-laner.  

Ry0ma is an Australian player who will be making his LCS debut with 100 Thieves, making him a surprising choice considering he has no experience competing in a major region. 

Posting on Twitter, manager Chris Smith explained the reasoning behind signing Ry0ma, writing: “We selected @Ryoma100T to be the mid laner for @100Thieves because he ticked all boxes. 

“High baseline of skill (assessed by panel of four coaches/staff) with clear upside. English first language for communication. Performance exceeded expectations in NA tryout. Good references. 

“Imported players come to LCS for many different reasons – For an OCE player, it represents a higher level of competition where they can truly compete on a big stage. This is exactly the kind of player I want in my org – someone who understands the opportunity he’s been given.” 

He added: “No player who we talked to and scouted this offseason better represented themselves than Ryoma and it was a unanimous decision to bring him on as our mid laner. He’s got a lot of growing to do, but I’m excited to watch the journey up close!” 

This completes their starting roster for LCS, with ry0ma joining Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho, William “Meteos” Hartman, Cody Sun and William “Stunt” Chen. Tony Gray will be head coach.  

100 Thieves will be hoping to turn their fortunes around in the scene, after failing to qualify for Worlds 2019 and placing 9-12th the previous year.
