As the year comes to a close, EnVyUs have announced their roster for the 2017 LCS season.

The North American side have made two new signings, adding jungler Tae-yoo “LirA” Nam and Apollo Price at AD carry. The pair will join the returning trio of top laner woo-yeong “Seraph” Shin, midlaner Geon-woo “Ninja” Noh, and support Nickolas “Hakuho” Surgent.

Apollo has a long career in the North American LCS, having played for Team Impulse, Team Coast, Team Dignitas and Apex Gaming. He joins EnVyUs from Team Dignitas as part of a trade deal.

LirA most recently placed for Afreeca Freecs in Korea, where he was part of the squad that finished fifth in both the Spring and Summer LCK Splits.

EnVyUs’ original AD carry, Benjamin “LOD” deMunck, joined Dignitas earlier this week as part of the Apollo trade. Dignitas also looked to Korea, signing Chan-ho “Ssumday” Kim formerly of KT Rolster and Jungler Sang-hyun “Chaser” Lee to play alongside returning midlaner Lae-Young “Keane” Jang and support Alex “Xpecial” Chu. 

The team has made no comment on the removal of Seyoung Proxcin Kim, who played in the jungle during EnVyUs’ first LCS Split.

EnVyUs finished sixth in their debut LCS Split, reaching the playoffs but falling in the first round.
