Changing Tides — The Oceanic stars headed overseas in 2020

The landscape of the Oceanic Pro League is changing forever in 2020, as new import rules in North America’s League of Legends Championship Series, as well as a dominant showing from Mammoth at the 2019 World Championship, has turned the eyes of the world to OCE.

This year, more Oceanic representatives than ever will be trading their star roles in the Land Down Under with fledgling careers in North America and Europe, and gunning to make their international dreams come true in new frontiers.

Snowball Esports have taken a look at all moves from Australia to the LCS and LEC systems, including their time in the Pro League, and what’s next for our Oceanic stars.
