Taiwanese League of Legends team, PSG Talon, unveiled its LoL roster for the 2022 season on Wednesday, December 8.

As revealed by the Pacific powerhouse, PSG Talon enter the new season with a new-look roster featuring some new and exciting faces.

New Faces Join PSG Talon

For the 2022 LoL esports season, PSG Talon decided to rebuild its roster. Unfortunately, that is despite their incredible success in 2021, having made some serious noise in international competitions.

As announced, PSG Talon’s LoL roster will welcome a new top laner, jungler, and a new mid laner. The news follows the departure of three key members, including jungler Kim “River” Dong-woo, top laner Wong “Kartis” Ka Lok, and mid laner Huang “Maple” Yi-Tang.

PSG Talon kept only three players from its previous roster for the next season. Top laner Su “Hanabi” Chia-Hsiang, ADC Wong “Unified” Chun Kit, and support Ling “Kaiwing” Kai Wing are all still contracted with the team and are expected to continue with PSG Talon.

Joining the trio are four new players. The list of arrivals includes top laner Huang “Azhi” Shang-Chih, jungler Lee “Juhan” Ju-han, and two mid laners in Park “Bay” Jun-byeong and Jason “Kanna” Ng.

PSG Talon LoL Roster For 2022

  • Su “Hanabi” Chia-Hsiang – Top Lane
  • Huang “Azhi” Shang-Chih – Top Lane
  • Lee “Juhan” Ju-han – Jungle
  • Park “Bay” Jun-byeong – Mid Lane
  • Jason “Kanna” Ng – Mid Lane
  • Ling “Kaiwing” Kai Wing – Support
  • Wong “Unified” Chun Kit – ADC

A Mixed Roster

As revealed by the team, PSG Talon will continue with two top laners and two junglers. It’s unclear which two will start for PSG Talon in 2022, but the organization will likely experiment to find the best fit for the team.

It is also interesting to see PSG Talon’s commitment to fielding a mixed LoL esports roster. As an organization that operates in several esports scenes, PSG Talon’s LoL division now fields players from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea.

The mixing of players from three countries could suggest that there could be communication issues. However, PSG Talon seems to have built its roster, so there will be some synergy from the start.

PSG Talon’s core in Hanabi, Unified, and Kaiwing have remained with the team, providing strong championship synergy in the crucial roles. The trio are expected to kick off the season besides the two new Korean arrivals in Juhan and Bay.

Juhan and Bay arrived at PSG Talon from Nongshim RedForce Challengers, with who they placed third in LCK CL Summer 2021. The duo were also a part of RedForce’s LCK roster and had been playing together since November 2020.

Although great additions, Juhan and Bay will have huge shoes to fill, replacing River and Maple, respectively.

PSG Talon Aiming High

PSG Talon enter the 2022 LoL esports season following a highly successful run in 2021. The team won the League of Legends Pacific Championship Series (PCS) Spring and Summer and made a splash in international competitions.

In May, PSG Talon reached the semi-finals of the Mid-Season Invitational but lost against the eventual champions, Royal Never Give Up. At the 2021 LoL World Championship, PSG Talon couldn’t replicate the same success and crashed out of the group stage.

Regardless, they made some noise, picking up wins against Hanwha Life Esports and Fnatic. Unfortunately, they came one win short of reaching the playoffs.

With a new roster, PSG Talon will look to build on that success, reclaim their PCS throne and build towards making a deeper run at the 2022 LoL Worlds. We will get to see PSG Talon’s new roster in action in the PCS 2022 Spring, set to start sometime in January.
