Tactical joins TSM as starting bot laner
TSM would like Edward “Tactical” Ra to return to the organization as the starting bot laner, according to an announcement today. In the confirmation tweet, TSM said this will be the âfirst changeâ to the roster ahead of the 2022 season.
November 18, Team Liquid revealed Tactical and Barney “Alphari” Morris were leaving the list. During his time with the organization, Tactical completed two consecutive races at the world championships in 2020 and 2019, won the LCS Lock-In Championship and made two appearances in the LCS Finals.
Just days after being freed from his previous team, Tactical has already found a familiar home in TSM. Here he will find former teammates and the organization, but this time as a starter.
TSM is on the cusp of making several other changes to its coaching staff and start list. Earlier this week, Pablo Suarez of Dot Esports announced that the team had reached a deal to bring Hong Kong Attitude head coach Wong “Chawy” Xing Lei on board.
TSM still has vacancies in the middle lane and support positions. The void in the middle lane is opened after TSM failed to secure former mid laner and former head coach SÃ¸ren “Bjergsen” Bjerg. Former G2 backer Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle could also strike a deal with TSM, according to SuÃ¡rez, but âNothing is concrete yetâ.
After failing to qualify for the World Championships and failing to make an appearance in the LCS Finals in 2021, the organization is turning to old faces to re-emphasize the historic organization of the LCS.
