ex- ROX Tigers substitute mid laner Hae “Cry” Sungmin (renamed Zet) and Coach Jeong “NoFe” Nochu have joined the LPL’s EDward Gaming for the next split. You can read the announcement on their weibo here.
This means that the full EDward gaming roster is as follows;
- Coach: Jeong “NoFe” Nochul
- Top: Tong “Koro1” Yang
- Top: Chen “Mouse” Yuhao
- Jungle: Ming “Clearlove” Kai
- Jungle: Zhen “Mitty” Zhiming
- Mid: Lee “Scout” Yechan
- ADC: Hae “Zet” Sungmin
- Support: Tian “meiko” Ye
The acquisition of ROX Tigers’ former sub mid lane and coach is seen as a statement of intent for not only the LP, but the Worlds’ stage after has EDG fallen out of the quarterfinals twice in 2 years.
It will be interesting to see how this new roster fairs in the future to come with many LPL teams gaining considerable LCK talent over the current roster changes.
