KSV has announced two new additions to its PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds team, filling out four of their planned initial eight-man team.

Shim “Simsn” Young Hoon and Cho “Aloha” Kyung Hoon will join Kim “EscA” In Jae and Lee “Leetaejun” Tae Jun to make up the first four players on the team. All four players recently held the top four ranks in the Korea and Japan PUBG servers simultaneously.

“My aim trained through the past career in FPS games will be put to good use in PUBG,” said Aloha. “PUBG is a shooting game like what I had played but with unique geographical features and tools to use. This could be fun to play with, so I’m looking forward to joining KSV’s team.”

KSV still plans to unveil four more players at a later date. The team is also currently looking to fill out multiple positions in coaching and management for PUBG.

“I joined the team with a special responsibility, because I now have a family of my own,” said Simsn. “As a proud father of my two children, and a dedicated husband, I will do my best at home and the game.”

KSV originally announced its intentions to move into PUBG last week with the reveal of former Overwatch pros EscA and Leetaejun heading up the team. Recently, the new four man roster had been playing under the pseudonym “AseL” and performing well on the leaderboards.
