As for Ablazeolive, he returned to the Golden Guardians after his participation in the Golden Guardians Academy and LCS teams. Like Licorice and Ablazeolive, Olleh rejoined the League of Legends team as well.
Meanwhile, Lost joined the Golden Guardians after competing for TSM. Lost helped his former team win fourth place in the LCS 2021 Championship.
“The final piece of our roster, Lost joins us from TSM,” the Golden Guardians revealed on Twitter. “As a consistent force in the bottom lane, we are excited to see what he accomplishes here as he continues to grow and develop.”
TSM bid farewell to Lost, thanking him for dedication and time. The team added that they cannot wait to see Lost grow with the Golden Guardians.
“Really thankful for my 2 years spent at TSM, I’ve been able to meet so many amazing people during my time here and have grown a lot both as a player and a person,” Lost posted on Twitter. He then thanked those who supported him over the past year.
