From superstars coming out of retirement to title-winning teams undergoing major rebuilding, the 2021 offseason will surely turn out to be a wild one for League of Legends. With the World Championship reaching its breathtaking conclusion earlier this month, we now turn our attention to roster changes in the offseason. Here’s all the latest updates—confirmed signings, departures, trades and rumors—in the League pro scene, arranged according to region and team.

Several teams had disappointing 2021 campaigns in their local leagues. The West’s representatives from the LCS and LEC also crashed out of Worlds early. As organizations look to stay competitive and put up a better showing in 2022, fans can expect many lineups to get shaken up in the coming weeks. Not to mention, this year more than ever, League has an absolutely stacked free agency pool. Many veteran names and promising stars are joining the market as the roster shuffle unfolds.
