Team Solo Mid! TSM! Finally, the org has revealed their roster for the 2022 season. Has it just been me, or did this off-season move extremely slow? Maybe I just never cared enough before… but that is beside the point, because finally, we know who will be part of the org post-Bjergsen.
So let’s not ramble too much and get into the details of who will be part of this historical org’s roster for the 2022 LCS season.
Huni and Spica Stay
Two familiar faces will stay on the TSM roster for the 2022 season. Huni, who is still looking for his LCS title will continue to be the top laner for TSM FTX in 2022, while jungler Spica will also be a part of the roster.
Both have experience in the LCS and will be the veteran driving force of the team ahead of the 2022 season.
Tactical, the former Team Liquid bot laner, will be the starter for TSM in 2022 as well. He also has experience going into LCS playoffs and even playing on the Worlds stage which is going to be key going forward in 2022.

Now, this is where the roster reveal gets juicy. Two new players from China will be joining TSM FTX in 2022. Instead of looking to Korea for imports, like most other teams usually do, TSM looked elsewhere – China.
DoinB had predicted this, stating that LCS teams are also looking to China to find import players and well, who needs any type of leakers when you’ve got DoinB in your region, eh? The guy spoils anything and everything on stream.
But who exactly are the two players joining TSM FTX? Their new mid laner is 20-year-old Zhu "Keaiduo" Xiong, the former mid laner of TT Young, the LDL team of ThunderTalk Gaming. He is a young player and will surely bring a unique outlook on the game to the LCS.
The other new player is 19-year-old Wei "Shenyi" Zi-Jie, who was the substitute support player for FunPlus Phoenix in 2021. He also played for the LDL team of FunPlus Phoenix before being called up to the main roster.
So the complete roster for TSM FTX ahead of the 2022 season is:
|Heo "Huni" Seung-hoon||Top Lane|
|Mingyi "Spica" Lu||Jungle|
|Zhu "Keaiduo" Xiong||Mid Lane|
|Edward "Tactical" Ra||ADC|
|Wei "Shenyi" Zi-Jie||Support|
Do you guys think that this is the roster that’s going to win the LCS spring split and make it to MSI this year? Will they be able to defeat Cloud9 and Team Liquid? So many questions and soon we will have answers.
