The LPL’s Royal Never Give Up has signed former Flash Wolves AD carry Lu “Betty” Yu-Hung and rookie jungler Li “xiaolongbao” Xiao-Long to its League of Legends roster for the 2020 season, the organization announced today.
Betty joins the squad after Flash Wolves disbanded its League team after failing to lock in a spot in the PCS. Betty is likely to be fighting for a starting spot on the roster with RNG’s own legendary AD carry Jian “Uzi” Zi-Hao, who re-signed for the organization alongside support Shi “Ming” Sen-Ming, and mid laner Li “Xiaohu” Yuan-Hao.
Xiaolongbao will replace the outgoing jungler Hung “Karse” Hao-Hsuan, who is leaving RNG to join Top Esports. The jungler is relatively new in the scene and will join RNG for his first time on the LPL stage. He played on Young Masters in the LDL last year and helped them to win the Spring playoffs after coming in second for the regular season.
RNG wraps up its League roster for next year with top laner Xie “Langz” Zhen-Ying, as well as Zhang “Wink” Rui, who is a substitute on the squad.
The Chinese team ended last season after falling to Fnatic and SK Telecom T1 and failing to make it out of the group stage at the 2019 World Championship.
