[UPDATED 6/3] 2021 midseason megapost: All transfer news and roster changes before the Summer Split

Source: Riot Games


The 2021 Mid-Season Invitational has concluded, but for several weeks prior, League of Legends teams around the world have been making moves before the start of their respective summer splits. Since MSI 2021 concluded only a few days ago, the number of moves announced by teams should increase exponentially leading up to the return of competitive play. Let's take look at every change that's occured in the mid-season break.

 

Most recently, Invictus Gaming signed Jeong "NoFe" No-chu as its new head coach. NoFe, a long-time head coach in South Korea and briefly in China with EDward Gaming, had made a career swap in the first half of 2021 as a caster, but has returned to a head coach position with IG. 

 

Confirmed player signings are in green. Confirmed player departures are in strikethrough red. Transfers reported by reputable sources are in purple
