As mentioned in a previous announcement, Dennis ‘Svenskeren’ Johnsen will be departing from TSM in the 2018 NA LCS season. Despite the heavy criticism from the community over his more recent play, we would like to take this opportunity to thank him for all his hard work and effort during his time with us. There is no denying the integral part Svenskeren has played on TSM over the past two years, having countless standout performances in many important games or having the willingness to take a more supportive role when necessary. He has been an outstanding teammate and friend to those in the organization throughout his tenure on the team, and the decision to replace him has not been an easy one. He will be moving to a new team for the next season where he will be given the right tools find success with. Thank you Svenskeren for all that you have done for us, and we wish you the best in all your future endeavors.
After being on TSM for two years, I’ve grown a lot as a person and I will always be indebted to Andy for picking me up and for the incredible experiences I’ve had on the team. I’m sad that I was not able to live up to the expectations of the team and the fans in the end as I lost a lot of confidence in myself. I hope to stay friends with everyone I met through TSM in the long future and I’m looking confident to return to my old form as I join my new team!
