This year’s MSI will feature 21 names from among the NA and EU LCS, LPL and LCK English broadcast teams.
Fans will be happy to see Chris “Papasmithy” Smith and Indiana “Froskurinn” Black will be a part of the team this year. From their performances at the 2016 world championship as well as the multiple IEM events they’ve attended, both Papasmithy and Froskurinn have garnered sizable fan followings among the Western audience. The two boast a wealth of knowledge about the LCK and LPL respectively.
Riot will also have “guest spots,” which will feature professional players, coaches, and analysts on the desk throughout MSI will start on 28 April in Brazil.
