On Nov 22, Hanwha Life Esports announced the return of their former bot laner/world champion, Park “Viper” Do-hyeon.
Viper is a legendary bot laner who first gained recognition on the legendary Griffin roster. After the team disbanded, he joined Hanwha Life Esports in the middle of the 2020 season. He then earned much success in the LPL, when he joined EDG's roster in 2021, where he led the team to their first Worlds victory in 2021 and quickly rose to become one of the top bot laners in the LPL. This year, he led EDG to quarterfinals at Worlds, but got reverse swept by DRX 3-2 in that match.
Hanwha Life Esports commented,
"We are happy to announce that 'Viper' has joined HLE once again. We warmly welcome bot laner ‘Viper’, who has won the world championship and has excellent aggression. Please look forward to the new story of HLE that will unfold together with HLE ‘Viper’ in the following season."
Striving for perfection to achieve excellence in esports
