KT Rolsters’ veteran jungler had a larger impact on the newest addition to the team than some may have anticipated.
After the addition of Heo “Pawn” Won-seok in the mid lane and Song “Smeb” Kyung-ho in the top lane for KT’s 2017 roster, KT’s head coach Lee Ji-hoon revealed in an interview with OSEN’s Ko yong-jun that the only member of KT that re-signed, Go “Score” Dong-bin, was crucial in the recruitment efforts of KT.
“We are looking to make a team that can win the 2017 world championship,” he told OSEN. “We’ve currently recruited players like Pawn and Smeb who have a strong will to make that happen. Score was in the center of the rebuilding. His decision to stay with the team has also impacted the signing of both Pawn and Smeb.”
With fans around the world already talking about the new KT Rolster as a Korean power house, Lee also shared his thoughts on a bot lane that could match up the current roster.
“Because we haven’t confirmed our bottom lane yet, we are still carefully considering who we sign, but we do wish to make the decision as soon as we can in order to prepare for the coming 2017 spring split,” he said.
The final roster choices for KT has yet to be confirmed, but needless to say, they have the world’s attention.
