“It’s been an absolute privilege working alongside so many talented and hard-working people, and to contribute my part in TSM’s growth over the past seven years,” said Parth. “Thank you for the incredible memories and friendships that I will cherish forever.”

Since joining the team as an analyst in 2014, Parth has held a variety of responsibilities within the org, including the role of head coach. During the various times Parth coached the team in 2016, 2017 and 2020, he lead TSM to four League of Legends Championship Series titles and one Rift Rivals victory in 2017. 

As the general manager of TSM’s League of Legends program, Parth placed an emphasis on player scouting and talent development. Parth was one of the driving forces behind the success of TSM’s talent development initiatives including the TSM Academy and TSM Junior programs, as well as the TSM Scouting Combine. On Jan. 6, Parth published a 52-page article detailing his thoughts and findings on player development. 

Parth is the second long-time TSM employee to announce their departure within the past few months. On Nov. 20, former TSM President of Esports Leena Xu announced on Twitch that she would be stepping down from her position and joining OfflineTV. On Jan. 24, former TSM Art Director, and creator of TSM: Legends Max Olivo announced that he would be leaving the organization after a seven-year run to take on a new role with OfflineTV as well. 

TSM has lost more than just veteran employees in recent months. On Nov. 24, former star TSM mid laner Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg announced his signing with Team Liquid after playing under the TSM banner for eight years. On Dec. 27, popular Twitch streamer and content creator Ali “Myth” Kabbani announced that he would not re-sign with TSM after three years of working with the org.
