100 Thieves announce a stacked 2023 LCS roster

#News

100Thieves LCS 2023 Roster is stacked, and you should be scared to see them hit the rift.

The LCS is already looking pretty hectic for the 2023 season, and 100 Thieves haven't helped the situation by announced their roster. The Rift is about to get a whole lot wilder, as the team announces Yiliang "Doublelift" Peng and Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg will join the team in 2023.

Who is on the new 100 Thieves roster?

The 2023 100T roster features some familiar names, and some changes too. But for fans of the NA region, this might just be your season.
  • Top – Milan "Tenacity" Oleksij
  • Jungle – Can "Closer" Çelik
  • Mid – Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg
  • Bot – Yiliang "Doublelift" Peng
  • Support – Alan "Busio" Cwalina
Yes LCS fans, you read that correctly: Bjergsen and Doublelift on the same team again. Are y'all hyped for the 2023 season?
Fans will be relieved to hear that Bjergsen will be remaining the League after leaving Team Liquid following a less than expected split when the "super roster" did not live up to its name. This roster announcement also sees the return of Doublelift to pro play after taking a break during the 2022 season; having been seen last playing on TSM in 2021.
Busio and Tenacity are being promoted to the main 100 Thieves roster from the academy team. This demonstrates 100 Thieves, like many other teams in 2023, are looking to develop talent rather than buy it in.

What can we expect from this roster?

The NA 2023 season is heating up with the announcement of Team Liquid signing Worlds 2022 champion Pyosik to the team. But the announcement from 100T shows that Team Liquid won’t be able to make it to the top of the LCS without a fight.
The return of two LCS legends - Doublelift and Bjergsen at 100Thieves for 2023

Especially since 100T is bringing back two legends of the LCS for the 2023 season in Bjergsen and Doublelift. These two legends of the LCS are perhaps two of the best known players internationally. And as veterans have a ton of experience to push 100T to claim the top spot that they came close to last year.
