Evil Geniuses could star in one of the great movements of this transfer market in north America and incorporated into its ranks the south Korean Heo ‘Huni’ Seung-hoonalready at the beginning of April he had publicly announced that Dignitas allowed him to listen to offers from other clubs.
The news has been advanced by Jacob Wolf on ESPN Esports, who has cited sources of the league and is especially prominent because Huni is considered as one of the great players of the LCS and is among the best paid: before split spring is made public 2 300 000 dollars for two seasons.
The past split it started very well for his team, which was in positions of playoffs during the first half of the season, but a bad streak in the central section in the that chained five consecutive defeats were condemned to play a desemptate by the last square playoffs in that were left out.
His signing is not official yet, but his departure from Dignitas was already public to the disappearance of its contract in the database of Riot Games. If that is not enough, Dignitas announced yesterday the addition of the syrian-canadian Omran ‘V1per’ Shoura for your upper street from FlyQuest.
This signing creates a problem for the Evil Geniuses if there is no output, because you can only align two players non-residents, and the club has three among their ranks telling Huni. Your midlaner owner is Italian Daniele ‘Jiizuke’ di Mauro, who arrived from Europe in December, and its handle is the south Korean Bae ‘Bang’ Jun-sik, who until 2019 did not come to north America.
The two south koreans from Evil Geniuses —always confirm the signing— have a past in common, since both passed through the ranks of the SK Telecom T1. In the case of the Bang was half a decade at the club, while the step of Huni was brief and was limited to a single year.
That year, 2017, both agreed and the season started well for them, since they failed to win the LCK in the spring and take out the Mid-Season Invitational. Despite this, in summer they lost the final of the competition home and also were beaten in the final of the World cup, which ended a streak of three world cups in four years.
