Philippine organization Liyab Esports has announced their Wild Rift new roster for 2022.
The Wild Rift lineup will comprise former League of Legends professionals like Edrian “DoeDoii” Brancia and Ren “Kanji” Motomitsu, while Gerald “Tgee” Gelacio will be the team’s head coach.

Four of the players last played together in the League of Legends Pacific Championship Series (PCS) in 2021, where they finished 8th in the Summer Split with a 4-14 record.
The new additions include mid laner Gabriel “Sho” Sebastian Umali and Klyde Perfection “Klyde” Abello from Fennel University and Oasis Gaming.
Joining Tgee as the assistant coach will be Reggie Dominik “Cheesto” Paat, who’s been with the team since last year.
