After spending the 2020 League of Legends Spring Split in the LEC, Ju “Bvoy” Yeong-hoon will continue his travels by heading to the CBLOL to join Flamengo Esports.

Bvoy served as Misfits Gaming’s replacement for Steven “Hans Sama” Liv back in 2019. That year was the team’s worst performance yet, having finished eighth in the Spring Split and ninth in the summer. As a result, the management opted for a complete roster rebuild around veteran mid laner, Febiven.

The following season, Misfits saw great improvement in roster synergy and playstyle. The various rookies brought fire that other veterans lacked, while Febiven was able to rise back up to form as well. Their efforts had them end the regular season in fifth place and even qualified them for the playoffs.

During that run, Bvoy had the fifth most kills of any LEC AD carry. His numbers weren’t eye-popping, but his efforts were enough to help propel his team to their first postseason appearance since 2018. After they were eliminated, Misfits was given a chance to pick up Kobbe from North America, and the org seized the opportunity.

Meanwhile, Bvoy will now try to help Flamengo win the CBLOL championship after the team ended just short last season against KABUM Esports. His experience playing against Europe’s best should be invaluable for his team this split.

Meanwhile, Bvoy will be replaced who Kobbe will be joining a young Misfits squad that showed plenty of promise last spring. His experience should provide plenty to a roster that’s hungry for success after coming up short against Rogue in the first round of the postseason. Along with veteran mid laner Febiven, Kobbe will try to lead this fiery group to a deeper playoff run this summer.

While Kobbe was not the main reason TSM had a poor showing this split, it’s interesting to see how he will perform back on home soil. He was one of the best ADCs before he left and many people expected him to get onto a top tier team once Splyce disbanded. Hopefully, he doesn’t get demoralized by this situation and returns to his previous form to become one of the best ADCS Europe has to offer once again.

Going forward, more European players will be wary before joining TSM considering the latest roster changes. There are signs of nepotism in the team based on the analysis by the community’s respected members and experts, which shows TSM preference of certain players regardless of the situation in the league.

The CBLOL will return on June 6 for its second stage of the year.
