While so many people are waiting to see what moves the main LCS teams will make, it is their Academy teams that make moves that determine the LCS’ future. Some of the next jojopyuns, Dannys, Spicas and more have to make their way through Academy to be the next LCS stars. Who will be these potentially next great stars? Well here is the likely 2023 100 Thieves Academy Roster with players who they believe could help them now and in the future.
The path to the LCS has gone through significant changes heading into the 2023 season. The new North American Challengers League will look very similar to the new VALORANT Franchising format. There are the 10 LCS Academy teams and then six Provisional Teams or more specifically, former Amateur teams. The 10 Academy teams will be permanent while the six Provisional Teams have to fight to keep their spots.
Listed below is how the season will go with a Promotional Tournament twice a year.
Below is the team that 100 Thieves will be sending through that gauntlet.
Top: Sniper (Formerly General Sniper)
The 2023 season will see some very interesting talent on these Academy teams. Sniper, the brother of Viper, has long been heralded as one of the best prospects in LCS history. He has been lighting it up and has to go through one year of Academy, due to his age, until he will finally be able to make an LCS roster. Another under-the-radar pickup will be Yukino, who is another strong LCS prospect that was on EG Prodigies in 2022. Pretty will be that stabilizing force in the mid lane after spending all of 2021 and 2022 on Immortals Academy. Unforgiven will be the backup for the rumored Doublelift but a very strong pickup on his own. Lastly, Destiny will be back and helping to teach Unforgiven the ways of NA.
