The 20-year-old Chinese mid laner was the main mid laner for TSM in the LCS but was later replaced by TSM Academy mid laner Takeover. If we take a deep look at TSM’s spring split run, it would be unfair to blame it all on Keaiduo as they were having clear issues on every lane.

To achieve this, the North American organization has decided to sign the 27-year-old Danish mid laner Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen.
