As the 2018 NA LCS approaches with the new franchising / league model, more teams are looking to build an academy team to roster new talent. Team SoloMid is no exception, this year, they have decided to launch a completely new TSM line up for their academy team.
Top Lane: Brandon “Brandini” Chen
Jungle: Jonathan “Grig” Armao
Mid Lane: Nicholas “Ablazeolive” Abbott
AD Carry: Rasmus “MrRallez” Skinneholm
Support: Jordan “Shady” Robison
While it is unlikely TSM will replace any of their existing roster with the new academy members, considering each individual player on TSM’s primary starting roster are all stars, the academy team all are able to serve as substitutes.
