LPL Suning Gaming announced two of their Korean coaches on December 14th. Their new coaches include Hye-Sung ‘Comet’ Lim and Ji-Hoon ‘Easyhoon’ Lee. They live under the same roof as Maple and SwordArt, who has transferred from Flash Wolves.
The head coach, Comet, made his debut in the League of Legends esports scene as a support for Xenics Storm. Afterward, he was an esports reporter for Inven KR before he joined Jin Air Green Wings and Afreeca Freecs as a coach. With coach Zefa, Comet has guided Afreeca Freecs to the League of Legends World Championship 2018.
Easyhoon has changed his path and became a coach in Suning Gaming. He was formerly a mid laner for SK Telecom T1, earning his reputation as, ‘Emperor Hoon.’ He later went to play in the LPL for Vici Gaming before becoming a coach for Suning.
Meanwhile, Maple and SwordArt also joined the team along with the coaches; Suning Gaming, which has been kept in the middle of the rankings, is expected to have made this choice to climb to the top.
