The last time Lee Sin was played in the support position was back in 2014, in the 2013 LCK Winter Season. He was played by Samsung Ozone Cho “Mata” Se-hyeong against Najin White Shield Kang “GorillA” Beom-hyeon’s Thresh and resulted in a win.
In other regions, support Lee Sin was last played in 2017, in the EU LCS. Team ROCCAT and Misfits Gaming each played Lee Sin support in the two games where Team ROCCAT won both. Team ROCCAT support was Kim “Wadid” Bae-in and Misfits Gaming support was Lee “IgNar” Dong-geun. In this match, Wadid also played Vayne support.
