Every year, the competition to be in the starting lineup of a League of Legends team becomes much more complicated. The organizations have their player academies, and the level increases exponentially as the years go by.

Now, after a busy offseason 2022-23, full of player transfers and some promotions, there is a large handful of superstars in free agency. Unfortunately, whether in the LCS, LCK, LEC, or LPL, these superb players are stuck in free agency and have not secured a new home as of yet.

Three good picks for any LoL team

While we see new faces on the stages of the top competitive level of League of Legends, fans very rarely realize that some players will not be part of the spring season. Here are three League of Legends players who are currently without a team.

Gabriel “Bwipo” Rau

Bwipo had an excellent start to 2022, so much so that he was ranked as Team Liquid’s best player. Along with LCS veterans Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in and Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg, Bwipo helped the team take the LCS Lock-In title in January.

Team Liquid managed to advance to the playoffs in both the Spring and Summer Split. But both runs ended in third place. This caused them to lose the MSI and Worlds 2022.

Finally, in December, Bwipo announced that he would be moving into the role of Liquid’s content creator and that he is open to pursuing another LCS bid for Summer 2023.

Zaqueri “aphromoo” Black

Considered one of the best Supports in NA history, aphromoo was one of the cornerstones of FlyQuest’s 2022 lineup.

Aphromoo is a two-time LCS champion and led FlyQuest to two playoff appearances, finishing in the top eight. But, unfortunately, the team fell short against LCS giants like Team Liquid and TSM in the best-of-five series.

The experienced LCS player has not yet announced his plans for the 2023 season. However, lately, he has been streaming his VALORANT and League of Legends games on his Twitch channel.

Barney “Alphari” Morris

After an entire season with Team Liquid, Alphari returned to the LEC to be part of the formidable and super team, Vitality.

The Frenchman joined Vitality alongside Luka “Perkz” Perković and Matyáš “Carzzy” Orság, two stars of the professional League of Legends scene in EMEA.

With Alphari on the roster, Vitality qualified for the spring playoffs in the LEC 2022 after posting a 9-9 record. Although they managed to win the first playoff game against EXCEL Esports, Vitality was subsequently eliminated by G2 Esports.

The rest of the year was uneventful for Vitality, as the team missed the summer playoffs after losing the playoff game. Finally, on November 24, Vitality announced it was parting ways with Top Laner.

There is no doubt that these three players can be a luxury addition to any team. We will see what the future holds for these great players.
