Chinese League of Legends Secondary Pro League team T Bear Gaming announced on Friday that they signed former Longzhu Gaming AD Carry Lee “Fury” Jin-yong and former Najin e-mFire coach Shim Sung-soo as a head coach through their Weibo, writes Fomos’ Kim Yong-woo.
Fury was also the AD Carry for Samsung Galaxy before his move to Longzhu, and was known for favoring strong lane matchups and an aggressive play style. He also played a part in Samsung’s shot calling for his ability to read the map, but failed to show good performances in Longzhu and parted ways with the team on the first of December.
Coach Shim has been part of the coaching staff of Najin e-mFire as well as Taiwan’s J Team.
TBG has been active in the secondary league since 2015, and recorded 14 wins and 12 losses, placing seventh in the League and failing to qualify for promotions.
