Liquid announced recently that Santorin would not make it to the start of the LCS Lock In tournament, which ended up in Liquid having to start instead with former Team SoloMid jungler Jonathan ‘Armao’ Armao. 

Fortunately, Santorin has officially arrived now and will soon be able to play and practice with his new team. Liquid has played only a single game in the tournament so far.

Liquid started the LCS Lock In tournament in style, despite that he travelled to North America late. Liquid started out as one of the favorites to win the entire tournament by beating CLG in a convincing way in just 25 minutes. 

As both jungler Mads ‘Broxah’ Brock-Pedersen and top laner Finn’Finn’ Wiestål couldn’t make it in time, CLG was also hit by visa issues for the match.

Liquid’s new top laner, Barney ‘Alphari’ Morris, who got off to a great start in his first LCS game, is a player who made it to North America in time. Alphari was put on Camille, and he managed to roll over CLG with a 7/1/2 scoreline, giving fans early hope he was the right pickup.

The young bot laner, Edward “Tactical” Ra, who had a great end to the 2020 season with Liquid, was another player who impressed. Tactical is currently one of the team’s older members and is already beginning to show signs of improvement in 2021. Liquid is looking like a scary candidate to make it far in the LCS Lock In with Santorin making it to the roster soon.

When will Santorin play for Team Liquid?

He won’t join Summoner’s Rift with his team until Friday, January 22, when they clash with TSM, while he is finally in Los Angeles with the Team Liquid squad. Armao will play the next two games in the LCS Lock In, according to head coach Josh “Jatt” Leesman, while Santorin gets adjusted to jet-lag and practice.

2021 LCS Team Liquid roster: 

– Top – Barney “Alphari” Morris

– Jungle – Lucas “Santorin” Larsen

– Mid – Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen

– Bot – Edward “Tactical” Ra

– Support – Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in
