Jacob Wolf has finally confirmed the fate of where star bot laner, Johnsun will be going. FlyQuest are finalizing the buyout of the young star from Dignitas. He will become the starting bot and will finalize a FlyQuest roster that should have NA fans very excited.

According to Wolf, Immortals were originally the frontrunner for Johnsun but FlyQuest were able to beat them out. This finalizes a roster with Licorice, Josedeodo, Palafox and Diamond, all of whom were acquired via a buyout.
This comes as a bit of a surprise to many, not just in terms of the buyout for Johnsun but the way that FlyQuest have constructed their roster. Not a single player from the two-time LCS runner-up roster is returning. This is mainly because players decided to leave or FlyQuest did not have an interest in bringing some of them back.
They will be going with and almost all NA roster outside of Josedeodo. Not only that but they are going with either young or unproven talent in most cases as well. Licorice will be the oldest player at 23, Palafox and Diamond’s ages are not exactly known, but either way, it is pulling from the talent of NA.
This should be a roster that makes NA fans happy as many have wanted to see the younger and unproven talent get their shot at the LCS. With Licorice and Johnsun as already relatively known commodities, it will be interesting to finally get a chance to see Palafox, Diamond and Josedeodo on the main stage.
