League of Legends Indiana color broadcaster and analyst “Froskurinn” Black has decided to step down from the LEC broadcast team before spring 2021.
Froskurinn previously announced that she the contract with Riot Games had ended. It looks like she won’t be renewing the contract for Season 11.
While LEC fans were hoping Froskurinn would return to the professional League of Legends cast for one more season, a recent announcement from him has solidified the matter. Froskurinn will not return in 2021.
In a recent tweet, Froskurinn wrote:
“I have decided not to re-sign with LEC for the 2021 season. I cannot reveal the next steps yet, but I have always wanted to move on to management and development positions. I wish the LEC broadcast, teams and fans the best. I absolutely loved this place.
Froskurinn’s departure is a great loss for the LEC broadcast team
The LEC broadcast team boasts one of the most original and innovative cast and analyst groups on the League of Legends professional circuit.
Froskurinn has been instrumental in making the European League of Legends incredibly exciting. Its cast of colors gave the matches a unique flavor that kept fans coming back for more.
His synergy with fellow game pitcher Daniel “Drakos” Drakos is something to see. LEC fans will miss the duo as Spring Split 2021 approaches.
Froskurinn started her casting career in the Chinese LPL where she made a name for herself before moving to Europe in 2019.
His plan to leave the broadcast team is pretty much a reminder of Chris “PapaSmithy” Smith’s decision to quit the cast of LCK and join 100Thieves as coach and manager.
Froskurinn may be considering something similar. But nothing has yet been formalized.
