Unicorns of Love has finally revealed its new support for the upcoming EU LCS Spring Split.
Former bbq Olivers support Eun “Totoro” Jong-seop has joined Unicorns of Love’s starting roster, replacing former support player Zdravets “Hylissang” Galabov, who moved to Fnatic a few days ago.
Unicorns of Love originally teased the announcement on Dec. 21, showcasing a darkened image of the character Totoro, who originates from the movie My Neighbor Totoro.
Totoro was originally a part of LCK team bbq Olivers, but was replaced in the offseason by former Misfits support Lee “IgNar” Dong-geun. This left Totoro with two options—remain on bbq Olivers as a potential substitute for the team, or look elsewhere for a starting role.
Totoro was part of the bbq Olivers roster that had a horrid start in the LCK. After rebranding from ESC Ever in January 2017, the team finished eighth and ninth in the LCK Spring and Summer Splits respectively. In the Summer Split, the team managed to win promotion back to the LCK by beating CJ Entus in the LCK Spring Promotion tournament.
The Unicorns of Love have put together this roster to try and become a top contender for the EU LCS playoffs at the end of the season. The team were unable to qualify for Worlds last year despite a second-place finish in the Spring Split.
The EU LCS Spring Split begins on Jan. 19.
