Invictus Gaming Roster Changes: Duke Joins for the New Season

By   /   Dec 19, 2016

A new round of Invictus Gaming roster changes reveal Lee “Duke” Ho-seong as the new top laner for the Chinese multi-platform esports organization.

Duke, who had been part of SK Telecom T1 for the past two years, exited the dominant Korean powerhouse shortly after the conclusion of the 2016 League of Legends World Championship. Despite being an essential cog in the team’s victory, the organization couldn’t reach an agreement to renew his contract.

In the days to follow, SKT surprised everyone by signing Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon as its new starting top laner. Since then, analysts have been comparing the former Fnatic star against the might of Duke and debating over how this move will end for the reigning world championship winner.

Alongside his formidable presence in the top-lane, Duke has also taken on a nasty habit of procuring MVP awards every time he sets foot on the Rift. His most recent accolade, besides the crown of reigning world champion, is the 2015 LCK Spring Split MVP award. During the LCK 2016 Summer Split, Duke registered a 62 percent kill participation on SKT.

Duke arrives to replace Liu “Zzitai” Zhihao who joined Snake Esports Club after a five-year run on Invictus Gaming. Him being part of Invictus Gaming roster changes is a great boost for the Chinese squad.

IG finished fourth in the LPL regular summer season and failed to move past the quarterfinals in the playoffs. During the recent Demacia Cup, it was knocked out of the competition early on in the group stage. As a silver lining, IG found momentary success in the off-season by winning the National Electronic Sports Tournament.

The starting League of Legends lineup for Invictus Gaming in the upcoming new season will be as follows:

  • TOP: Lee “Duke” Hoseong
  • JUN: Ge “Kid” Yan
  • MID: Song “Rookie” Euijin
  • ADC: Yu “JackeyLove” Wenbo
  • SUP: Wang “Baolan” Liuyi
