The 2019 season of League of Legends is over, and we’re now into the off-season. Free agency kicked off with a bang this week, as LCS powerhouse Team Liquid has decided to go a new direction at the Jungle position. They’ve chosen not to re-sign Xmithie, and will instead enlist help out of the LEC region. They’ve agreed to terms with Fnatic’s Broxah, who will be joining Team Liquid for the 2020 season.

To replace Broxah, Fnatic has signed Selfmade from SK Gaming. And don’t worry about Xmithie, he’s reportedly found a new home with Immortals Gaming. Immortals are rejoining the LCS this year after purchasing Optic Gaming’s franchise slot for a reported 35-45 million dollars.

Our thoughts: I wouldn’t say this is a major signing for Team Liquid. This isn’t a case of them taking out the trash and finding gold. Xmithie was a very good jungler for Team Liquid, and in my opinion was every bit as good as Svenskeren was over the summer split. Broxah will be a very strong replacement, and does have the potential to be better than Xmithie in the long run. But this isn’t a guaranteed home-run.
