On Thursday, November 30, the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) team, FlyQuest, announced its 2024 LoL roster. The lineup will feature several big names from the scene, including Gabriël "Bwipo" Rau, Kacper "Inspired" Słoma, and Nicolaj "Jensen" Jensen.

For the 2023 LCS season, FlyQuest invested heavily into its League of Legends roster. The NA team signed some of the top players in the region and acquired two promising talents from Korea, including mid laner  Lee "VicLa" Dae-kwang and ADC Lee "Prince" Chae-hwan.

However, despite FlyQuest's heavy investments, the team failed to live up to the expectations. FlyQuest kicked off the season with a runner-up finish at the LCS 2023 Spring regular season and claimed a bronze medal from the LCS 2023 Spring Playoffs.

And while things looked good early into the year, FlyQuest completely fell apart in the summer split, ending the regular season in ninth place with a 6-12 record. With that, the team missed out on the LCS 2023 Summer Playoffs and ultimately lost their chance to qualify for LoL World Championship.

Following an abysmal season, FlyQuest decided to hit a reset button on its LoL division and released all of its players, except for Mingyi "Spica" Lu, who is still under contract with the team. However, he isn't expected to play in the 2024 season.

The new FlyQuest roster will feature several known names from the LoL esports scene, including top laner Gabriël "Bwipo" Rau, who last played professionally in the 2021 season with Team Liquid. Joining Bwipo is jungler Kacper "Inspired" Słoma, and mid laner Nicolaj "Jensen" Jensen, forming a strong and experienced top side.

For its bottom lane, FlyQuest decided to acquire support Alan "Busio" Cwalina from 100 Thieves, and promoted its academy ADC Fahad "Massu" Abdulmalek. The latter is an unproven talent at the LCS level, having started his esports career in May 2022.

He has since played for FlyQuest Academy and FlyQuest Challengers, helping the team place fourth at the NACL 2023 Summer Playoffs. However, despite his lack of experience competing at the top level, Massu will be surrounded by veterans, which will definitely help him improve as a player.

FlyQuest will showcase its new roster with the start of the LCS 2024 Spring Split, set to begin in January 2024.
