LPL Spring 2023: Full roster of every team competing

Updated on February 9, 7:55 p.m. (GMT+8): Ming has rejoined Royal Never Give Up.

Updated on January 16, 8:47 p.m. (GMT+8): Added more information on Top Esports.

The LPL region had a relatively successful year in 2022 when Royal Never Give Up won MSI for the second time in a row. At Worlds, JD Gaming finished in 3rd-4th place after bowing out in the semifinals.

After another turbulent offseason, LPL Spring 2023 resets the board. Neither RNG nor JDG has retained the same roster, so expect new organizations to rise.

The first match will kick off on January 14, 2023. The season will officially end on March 26.

Here’s the full roster of every team competing in LPL Spring 2023.

The Worlds 2020 finalist went to TSM in 2021, and spent a year with Weibo Gaming in 2022 before moving over to join Betty to lead this relatively inexperienced roster.

Competing with JD Gaming since 2018, mid laner Zeng “Yagao” Qi left the nest to join Bilibili Gaming for LPL Spring 2023. He won two domestic titles with JDG and competed at Worlds twice in 2020 and 2022 during his four-year tenure.

Jungler Peng “Xun” Li-Xun was groomed on Invictus Gaming, succeeding on its academy team before earning a starter spot.

Top laner Chen “Bin” Ze-Bin needs no introduction. Clinching second place at Worlds 2020 with Suning, he went on to win MSI 2022 with Royal Never Give Up before trading places with Chen “Breathe” Chen before the start of LPL Summer 2022.

LPL fans will also recognize bot laner Zhao “Elk” Jia-Hao and Support Luo “ON” Wen-Jun. Elk made a name for himself on Team WE. He played for Ultra Prime in 2022 before moving over to Bilibili Gaming, while ON had previously filled SwordArt’s shoes on Weibo Gaming.

If there’s one player you should look out for this season, it’s 18-year-old top laner Chau “YSKM” Shu Tak — which stands for “You Should Know Me” — whom some fans have already dubbed “The second coming of TheShy.” He is most fond of playing Fiora, Camille, Irelia, and Jax. Sound familiar?

From iG Young, the organization’s academy team, he joined Frank Esports in the PCS for half a year in 2022 and is now back in the LPL.

Former bot laner Zhang “Wink” Rui role swapped to support since LPL Summer 2022, while Zhao “neny” Zhi-Hao and An “Ahn” Shan-Ye continue in the top lane and bot lane respectively.

Former KT Rolster substitute jungler Kim “GIDEON” Min-seong, a 19-year-old from South Korea, joined with mid laner Kim “Dove” Jae-yeon, who competed with Liiv SANDBOX, KT Rolster, and ⁠SANDBOX Gaming in previous years.
