For many long-time League of Legends fans in North America, the end of an era has come. TSM has officially started the process to leave the LCS and join another tier-one region, according to CEO Andy 'Reginald' Dinh, who made the announcement on May 20. After allegedly "pausing" its esports efforts due to financial difficulties, the organisation has been the subject of rumours. Now, following several unsuccessful seasons, it is taking the difficult decision to start again in a new league.
TSM has been associated with the League and the overall esports ecosystem for the past ten years, paving the stage for an illustrious stint as the face of the LCS. It attracted viewers from all around the world with legendary rosters, humorous material, and events that will live on in the annals of this league.
