According to sources, TSM are signing SwordArt to be their newest support. He would take over the position from Biofrost. According to Launcher, this will be a two-year, $6 million deal and is believed to be one of if not the biggest contracts in LCS history.

Coming off arguably his biggest year to date, SwordArt comes over to TSM as the Worlds 2020 runnerup. He brings with him a history of success at multiple levels and will be heading overseas for the first time ever. With Doublelift retiring, it will be interesting to see how SwordArt and Lost, who is likely to be the next TSM ADC, will fare compared to the other bot lane duos.
The reason being that this roster is not built to take its time coming together. They will be expected to compete right away and with the moves many other LCS teams have made, this will not be an easy task. The best part about adding SwordArt for TSM is that he might instantly be the second-best support purely talent-wise and could push CoreJJ for the top spot.
