Mid laner, Lee “Crown” Min-ho, has left LCS team, Counter Logic Gaming, and joined OZ Gaming in Challengers Korea.
The former Samsung Galaxy 2017 World Champion moved to North America in 2019 to play for Optic Gaming before signing with CLG for Spring Split 2020.
However, with CLG at the bottom of the rankings with a 3-13 record, and out of the Spring Split playoffs, the organization has undergone a series of roster shuffles.
In early March, CLG announced that Crown will no longer be part of the organization. He later stated on Twitter that he would be returning to Korea after being “removed” from the team.
Under OZ Gaming, Crown joins bot laner Na “Pilot” Woo-hyung, support Cho “Motive” Se-hee and mid laner An “Ian” Jun-hyeong, all of whom are best known for being on team MVP in the 2018 LCK season.
At 1-6, OZ Gaming is currently ranked last out of eight teams after five weeks of play.
Like the LCK, Challengers Korea was postponed due to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. CK Spring 2020 will resume with online matches on March 26.
