Diamondprox, Edward to headline Team Spirit’s new LoL squad in the LCL

Russian organization Team Spirit have entered the League of Legends scene as they bought out RoX’s spot in the CIS’ League of Legends Continental League (LCL).

The move represents Team Spirit’s first foray into League of Legends, and their second in MOBAs. The organization is famous in Dota 2, where they have recently won The International 2021.

Headlining their lineup are former Moscow Five and Gambit Gaming jungler and support, Danil “Diamondprox” Reshetnikov and Edward “Edward” Abgaryan. The two players recently featured on Brazilian organization FURIA Esports, where they were unable to qualify to the CBLoL playoffs.

The full roster is as follows:

Like their Dota 2 lineup, the League of Legends squad features talent from the CIS region. Alongside CIS legends Diamondprox and Edward, two former CrowCrowd players have joined: mid laner Griffon and AD carry Mytant.
