Gen.G loses most of its roster in big shake-up
Gen.G Esports has cleaned house, parting ways with most of its active roster.
Kang "Ambition" Chan-yong, Lee "Crown" Min-ho Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in, Kang “Haru” Min-seung, and Moon “MONG” Chang-min were released from Gen.G roster, the organization announced through Twitter. The former world champions finished their contracts with the organization and decided to explore free agency.
CoreJJ started as an AD carry but in 2016 swapped roles to support to make space for rookie player Ruler.
Ruler and CoreJJ became one of the most popular bottom duos in Korea. Both players were part of the Korean team in the Asian Games 2018 where Korea won the silver medal in League of Legends.
Ambition acted as the team’s captain for the past three years The mid laner turned jungler became one of the emblematic players in the LCK. He was featured in the music video “RISE,” the official song for the World Championship 2018.
Crown is another iconic player in the LCK. Considered once the star of the team, Crown’s 2018 performance was inconsistent. Gen.G signed Fly, and Crown became a sub for most of the summer split.
Haru joined the team in 2016 when he was still a rookie and attended the World Championship 2017 as a sub. The jungler shared his playing time with Ambition, often starting a best-of-three series only to be replaced later.
Mong is the newest member of the squad, as he joined Gen.G in May 2018. The young top laner didn’t see much action during the summer while playing behind CuVee, one of the best top laners in the LCK.
