ROX Tigers coach said he and the organization “put our heads together to figure out the new roster.”

The ROX Tigers announced Wednesday their 2017 season roster for League Champions Korea.

The new ROX will be primarily comprised of former Afreeca Freecs players with Heo “Lindarang” Man-heung in the top lane, Yoon “Seonghwan” Seong-hwan in the jungle, Son “Mickey” Young-min in the mid lane and Kwon “Sangyoon” Sang-yoon as the AD Carry.

Two of the six man roster weren’t part of Afreeca; Park “Shy” Sang-myun from CJ Entus, who will share the top lane with Lindarang, and Kim “Key” Han-gi will be the new support.

In a separate interview with Fomos’ Choi Min-suk, the new head coach of ROX Kang Hyun-jong said he and the organization “put our heads together to figure out the new roster,” and that they focused on the “synergy between ambitious new talent and more experienced players.”

ROX has been previously disqualified from competing in IEM Gyeonggi due to not having a roster ready, despite accepting the invitation.
