Sjokz returns to LEC Desk in Week 5 of the LEC Spring Split
The LEC queen has returned in time for studio games.
Renowned LEC Desk host Sjokz will be returning to the broadcast team after sitting out the first four weeks of the 2022 LEC Spring Split due to contract negotiations with Riot Games.
Sjokz, who has been a staple LEC broadcast talent alongside Quickshot, since 2013 announced on Twitter last week that she would not be with LEC for the remainder of the spring split shocking fans.
In their place, we saw an onslaught of new talent take the helms in week 4 as Sjokz took a step back from her usual duties. Now, she is back in line with the LEC's return to the studio.

Sjokz will return to the LEC with a number of cool things to look out for, namely Rogue’s nine-game winning streak. The 2021 summer 3rd place team has made gargantuan strides in 2022 after arguably downgrading their lineup in talent. Yet, they continue to defy expectations as they are one game away from having beaten every team in the LEC.
The LEC last week felt a noticeable change without not only Sjokz but Laure Valee, who was doing work with the LFL last week.
The marquee matchup to look out for in week 5 has to be the final game of day two between Fnatic and Vitality. In the match of the week, vitality will look to exact revenge on Fnatic, as both teams have been headed in different directions.
Fnatic who started the split strong has since faltered in their past two weeks, going 1-3. Meanwhile, since their 0-3 start Vitality has bounced back to end the first half 5-4 with an opportunity to jump back in the race for 2nd in the 2022 LEC spring split.
With the 2022 LEC spring split at its boiling point in the quest for playoff seeding, every team, aside from rogue, have something to compete for at the start of the halfway point of spring.
Week 5 of the 2022 LEC spring split will begin with BDS vs Misfits at 12 pm est as the LEC slowly begins to return to the studio again.
