In 2023, TSM exited the competitive League of Legends scene in North America, leaving dedicated fans hopeful for a resurgence in a new region. However, recent cuts and a lack of communication led to dwindling support. Disheartened followers expressed their disappointment on various platforms, describing TSM's situation as a slow and painful demise. Calls for a statement from owner Andy "Reginald" Dinh intensified after promises of an announcement in March went unfulfilled.
Hope persisted when Reginald hinted at TSM moving to another tier-one region, but reports of a diminishing workforce, coupled with the dismissal of social media manager Duncan "Dunc" Cox, crushed remaining faith. TSM, renowned for a decade-long legacy across multiple esports, particularly in the North American League scene, faced a somber fall from grace after winning seven regional championships and making notable World Championship appearances.
