The LEC, Europe’s top franchised professional League of Legends circuit, has announced its 2022 talent lineup for casters, hosts, and analysts. This year’s lineup includes the return of Marc “Caedrel” Lamont after an offseason where his return seemed uncertain, as well as Trevor “Quickshot” Henry’s return to regular appearances on the broadcast.
In a video published by the LEC, the full lineup of talent across the analyst desk, casting, and interviews was announced. Eefje “Sjokz” Depoortere, Daniel “Drakos” Drakos, Laure Valée, Aaron “Medic” Chamberlain, Andrew “Vedius” Day, Mikkel “Guldborg” Nielsen, Marc “Caedrel” Lamont, and Trevor “Quickshot” Henry make up the full cast of LEC talent.
It was unclear over the offseason if Caedrel would return to broadcast after a series of cryptic tweets and rumors surrounding him possibly coaching Vitality’s new super team project. Despite the uncertainty from November to now, Caedrel’s return to the LEC broadcast is a welcome one for many fans. Caedrel’s presence on the LEC broadcast was a smashing success, even netting him an award for best analyst of 2022.
Quickshot has made his return to the LEC after a notable hiatus from being a frequent on-screen presence during any given week of play. The South African-born caster recently opened up about the mental health difficulties of the past few years and his struggle with burnout. It appears that Quickshot has taken the time to care for himself and is ready to return to the LEC as one of its top casters.
Ongoing health concerns have made the operation of the LEC especially rocky, with broadcasts swapping between in-studio to remote throughout the year. The LEC continues to produce some of its content remotely, with weekly podcast The Dive being hosted away from the in-person set at the LEC studio in Berlin, Germany.
The LEC returns to play on January 14.
