Afreeca Freecs add Spirit, Mowgli and TusiN

MaRin injured his hand while riding a bicycle and said he's "taking solo queue slowly" while recovering.
The Afreeca Freecs top laner MaRin (Jang Gyeong-hwan) injured his hand while riding a bicycle and said he's "taking solo queue slowly" while recovering.

The Afreeca Freecs announced the signing of three players and a coach on Friday, finishing their rebuilding process.

Their announcement on Facebook reads that junglers Lee “Spirit” Da-yoon and Lee “Mowgli” Jae-ha, and support player Park “TusiN” Jong-ik to their roster, as well as Cho Gye-hyun as a coach.

Spirit has made a name for himself in Korea as a mechanically-skilled jungler for Samsung Galaxy Blue in 2014 season, showing off his skills in the that year’s world championship. He moved to China’s World Elite for the 2015 season and to Fnatic last year.

TusiN was formerly the support of Longzhu Gaming and was known for his aggressive laning style as well as some off meta picks in 2015’s spring split such as Mao Kai and Irelia. He had a brief stint as a jungler in the summer split until he announced his departure from the team in September 2015.

Mowgli is a rookie player who debuted on the stage of the 2016 KeSPA Cup as part of the KeG Choongnam team. Afreeca’s Facebook post also revealed that Mogli is an amateur of note as he has multiple accounts in the Challenger tier in Korean ranked play.

Cho was previously on League Champions Korea team ESC Ever.

With Jang “MaRin” Hyeong-seok in the top lane and Lee “Kuro” Seo-Haeng in the mid lane, Afreeca has finished its rebuilding process in preparation of the 2017 season under the leadership of Choi “iloveoov” Yeon-seong as the head coach.
