Free Agency Day: latest announcements, changes, swaps and rumours

With the 2020 season quickly approaching, Free Agency Day didn't disappoint as the LoL community saw a plethora of changes, free agency and rumours about future destinations.
The offseason for League of Legends is guaranteed to see pros will vie for coveted starter spots on various teams; some new, some old. Free Agency day has seen some deals began as rumors, and others are in the process of becoming finalized. A lot of players have taken to Twitter, announcing that they are now free agents and today is the first official day where those players will hope to acquire new teams and those same teams will be looking for top talent to pad their rosters.

Below is a breakdown of the teams, players, and possibly coaches that will be making their moves today for both the LCS and the LEC as well as already-confirmed free agents for 2020. Updated information will also be added for the following few days:

 

LEC:

 

FNATIC

Alfonso “Mithy” Aguirre Rodriguez, formerly support on Origen, as well as previous history on TSM and G2 Esports, will be finalizing terms to move to coach. Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek from SK Gaming will be moving to the team as their new jungler.

 

G2 ESPORTS

 

EXCEL

Tore “Norskeren” Hoel Eilertsen, formerly of Splyce and FC Schalke 04, will become their new support. Patrik “Patrik” Jírů from Origen will be their AD Carry.

 

ROGUE

Oskar “VandeR” Bogdan will be continuing his stay with a two-year extension. Steven “Hans Sama” Liv has moved over from Misfits.

 

MISFITS

Iván “Razork” Martin and Petr “denyk” Haramach will be coming over from Vodafone Giants.Spain as jungler and support, respectively.

 

ORIGEN

Acquired three new team members in Elias “Upset” Lipp from FC Schalke 04, Andrei “Xerxe” Dragomir from Splyce, and Mitchell “Destiny” Shaw from Mammoth.

 

LCS:

 

EVIL GENIUSES

 

GOLDEN GUARDIANS

Greyson “Goldenglue” Gilmer will be moving from Cloud9 Academy to a starting spot with his new team, replacing Henrik “Froggen” Hansen. From this, GGS has moved their Academy player Cristian “Palafox” Palafox to Cloud 9 Academy.

 

CLOUD9

The team has paid $1.5 million to acquire Phillippe “Vulcan” Laflamme from Dignitas. They are currently finalizing negotiations with TSM to move Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen to their ADC spot. Zachary “Sneaky” Scuderi has since spoken out on stream saying he didn't want to fight for his spot if he was not wanted on the team.

 

TSM

The team has made a trade of supports with Counter Logic Gaming, moving Andy “Smoothie” Ta to CLG while taking back previous support Vincent “Biofrost” Wang. They have also gotten Kasper “Kobbe” Kobberup from Splyce.

 

100 THIEVES

Tommy “ry0ma” Le will be coming over from Bombers in the OCE. There is no word yet on if he will be on the starting roster.

Former OpTic Gaming/Immortals jungler Williams "Meteos" Hartman has also signed for the starting roster.

FLYQUEST

Latest: Lee “IgNar” Dong-geun will be moving across the pond from FC Schalke 04 to the NA team, with both teams finalizing negotiations.

 

DIGNITAS

Johnson “Johnsun” Nguyen, formerly on TSM Academy, will now be on Dignitas’ Academy roster. Johnsun was bought out by Cloud9 to finalize the deal with Vulcan. The team also agreed to keep Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon for a two-year extension for 2.3 million.

 

TEAM LIQUID

Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen is moving over from Fnatic to be the team’s starting Jungler.

 

IMMORTALS

The returning NA team is finalizing agreements to grab Jake “Xmithie” Puchero from Team Liquid. The team has declined to comment.

 

This marks the end of first day of Free Agency, it is certainly not the last as more updates and roster changes will be coming through as the year winds down.

With certain roster changes such as the Broxah and Xmithie switch or Zven replacing Sneaky, the rest of this off season is definitely news to look out for.
