ROX Tigers Roster Changes: Entire Lineup Revamped for 2017

By   /   Dec 23, 2016

Thursday’s announcement of ROX Tigers roster changes sees the Korean squad undergo a complete revamp for the 2017 League of Legends competitive season.

An official spokesperson apologized to fans for the late announcement, pointing out that significant consideration had to be done during the pre-season to ensure a final roster that goes well with the “overwhelming reputation” of the organization.

As such, the concluded ROX Tigers roster changes see long-time veteran Park “Shy” Sang-myun and former Afreeca Freecs member Heo “Lindarang” Man-heung report for the top lane. It’s unknown as to which of the two will be part of the starting lineup.

More Afreeca Freecs members follow with Yoon “SeongHwan” Seong-hwan in the jungle, Son “Mickey” Young-min in mid-lane, and Kwon “Sangyoon” Sang-yoon on AD Carry. Support Kim “Key” Han-ki makes up for the six-man roster.

“In 2017 as well, we the ROX Tigers promise to do our best to reward the fans’ love with exciting and enjoyable games,” exclaimed the esports organization. “We ask for your continued interest and support.”

There’s considerable experience resting on the shoulders of the newly signed players. Shy was once considered one of the best top laners in the region. The former members of Afreeca Freecs made a commendable run for the 2016 League of Legends World Championship, falling to Samsung Galaxy in the LCK gauntlet. Key won the 2015 KeSPA Cup with ESC Ever squad, defeating SK Telecom T1 in the process.

The previous roster of ROX Tigers decided to not renew their contracts after representing the team in two world championship events. Song “Smeb” Kyung-ho joined KT Rolster, Han “Peanut” Wang-ho signed up with SK Telecom T1, Kim “PraY” Jong-in and Kang “GorillA” Beom-hyeon reported for Longzhu Gaming, and Lee “Kuro” Seo-haeng went with with Afreeca Freecs.

  • TOP: Park “Shy” Sang-myun / Heo “Lindarang” Man-heung
  • JUN: Yoon “SeongHwan” Seong-hwan
