KT Rolster announced Thursday the addition of support player Lee Chan-dong.
The Korean League of Legends power made the announcement on Facebook. KT now has six players on the roster with a potential flex pick between Cho “Mata” Se-hyeung and Lee.
Lee has almost no experience but played for KeG Choongnam during the KeSPA cup over the winter and is a high ranking player. He’s ranked No. 26 in the Korean solo queue ladder with 768 League Points.
KT went through some growing pains during the 2017 spring split, as expectations were high for Korea’s new “super team” after the additions of Mata, Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu, Heo “PawN” Won-seok and Song “Smeb Kyung-ho. But the team fell short of the lofty title of SK Telecom T1 killers after losing twice to SKT in the regular season and getting swept 3-0 in the League Champions Korea finals.
Mata, the starting support for KT, has confessed to some communication issues, even saying that he needed to change the way he did shot-calling, a trait that many fans attribute as his greatest strength. With his consistent weakness being in the laning phase, perhaps Lee might be an answer to KT’s problems in the early game, as he has high mechanical skill.
