Sergen ‘BrokenBlade’ Çelik joined TSM in the preseason leading up to Season 9 of the NA LCS to be the team’s starting top laner. Broken Blade was signed to the team after a year of complete domination within the Turkish Championship League, taking 1st or 2nd place in every major competition within the region and finishing the season with four accounts in challenger on the EUW servers. With this success at his young age, mechanically gifted top laner is coming into the NA LCS hungry for more, hoping to prove to the world that he can carry over his same level of dominance into a major region.
Matthew ‘Akaadian’ Higginbotham is one of TSM’s LCS junglers, having been promoted after his performance on the big stage in Spring 2019. Although he originally joined TSM in December 2018 to play in the NACS, he was brought up to the main squad to sub in for Grig, who had sustained serious injuries. Akaadian is a veteran player, having made his first LCS appearance in 2017 for Echo Fox and playing for Optic Gaming in 2018. His trademark early aggression and gank heavy playstyle led to many standout games within the LCS – especially during his rookie season. His performance in the league has led many to regard him as one of the League’s stronger individual junglers, especially amongst the homegrown North American talent.

Despite the team’s struggles during his inaugural split, Grig’s ability to smite major objectives has been one of the driving factors behind many of their victories. He is returning to the main squad for the upcoming 2019 Summer Split after sustaining a serious wrist injury.

Andy ‘Smoothie’ Ta signed with TSM at the end of 2018 to be the team’s starting support.
