After weeks of rumors, LNG officially confirmed the arrival of star jungler Tarzan and the rest of its League of Legends roster for 2021 today.

The 21-year-old joins the list of players who have chosen the LPL over the LCK for next season. This move also marks Tarzan’s first adventure out of Korea in his professional career.

Tarzan has been active since 2017 when he made his debut with Griffin in the Korean second division. In addition, he was with Griffin when he got promoted to the LCK in 2018.

The Korean jungler has been a finalist of the LCK on three occasions and went to Worlds once. He also won the KeSPA Cup in 2018.

Apart from Tarzan, LNG also announced four other new players earlier today. Both Plex and Icon joined LNG as mid laners. M1kuya has been added to the squad as the starting top laner and Light rejoined the team as the starting ADC for 2021.

M1kuya joins LNG from the LDL, the LPL’s second division, while Plex is making his comeback to LNG after some time at Team WE. Icon, on the other hand, is leaving Oh My God after five years to join the LNG squad for 2021.

The LPL offseason isn’t over yet, though. In addition to the signing of Tarzan, League fans have also seen other big signings over the last couple of hours, such as Nuguri moving to FPX.
