LCO World Championship representatives PEACE have signed free agent top laner Kiss “Vizicsacsi” Tamas as an emergency substitute for the 2021 tournament. The team announced the news on social media ahead of the Worlds group draw set to take place Sept. 22 at 14:00 CET.

The news follows PEACE’s announcement that they were travelling to Worlds without their starting top laner and jungler, Apii and LeeSA. The team has yet to announce its emergency substitute in the jungle.
With the emergency signing, Vizicsacsi will return to competitive League of Legends for the first time since Oct. 2019, when he reached the Quarterfinals as Splyce’s starting top laner.
The event allows him to showcase his current skill ahead of the 2021 free agency, and a solid showing would net him widespread interest among LEC teams.
