Former ROX Tigers support Kang “GorillA” Beom-hyun says that a tweet from Immortals’ twitter account showing a jersey with his name on it affected his negotiations with other teams, and that the team has since apologized to him. The since-deleted tweet was seemingly meant as a joke, as it included an image of two Immortals jerseys, one with GorillA’s name on it and another with former KT Rolster support Lee “Piccaboo” Jong-beom’s name. In a TwitLonger posted Sunday, GorillA said that he’s since spoken to Immortals CEO Noah Whinston and general manager Kang “Dodo” Jun-hyeok and that they’ve both apologized to him for the situation.Read More →

Never count Virtus.pro out of a fight. Newbee had a 15k net worth lead over Virtus.pro in the second game of the Group B Winners' Match, with Newbee winning most of the fights between the two teams. It looked like Newbee would take another fight near Roshan, but No[o]ne's Outworld Devourer held on long enough to secure an Ultra Kill and turn the tide of battle. That Ultra Kill was the start of a VP comeback, as the CIS team held on to defeat Newbee and become the first seed from Group B. Preston Dozsa is a news editor for theScore esports.

Han “Peanut” Wang-ho stands awkwardly in his introduction photograph, the SK Telecom T1 logo slightly off-center on the wall behind him. His team varsity jacket is too big for his small frame, almost comically so as the seams fall off of his shoulders, landing on his upper arm, and the jacket cuffs extend well past his wrists. With a somewhat strained smile, Peanut clenches his fist — a not-so-subtle promise of future success. Above this photo of Peanut, a short message reads: “Hello! We would like to introduce the new jungler for SKT T1! We signed a contract with Wang Ho ‘Peanut’ Han. Let’s welcomeRead More →
