Apollo has been around the block in the NA LCS, but has never made it to a domestic final.

North America’s Team EnVyUs has announced their League of Legends lineup for the 2017 Season, acquiring former Team Dignitas AD carry Apollo “Apollo” Price and jungler Nam “LirA” Tae-yoo, the organization announced Sunday.

The pair will join the trio of top laner Shin “Seraph” Woo-yeong, mid laner Noh “Ninja” Geon-woo and support player Nickolas “Hakuho” Surgent, who led the team to a fifth-sixth place in the organization’s inaugural split this summer. These moves were first reported by ESPN’s Jacob Wolf, who in addition mentioned the team will be led by former Immortals’ head coach Dylan Falco.

Apollo, the artist formerly known as WizFujiiN, is a veteran of the North American LCS, with his most notable success being a pair of playoff appearances with Team Impulse in 2015. The journeyman AD carry has bounced around during most of his career, but has proven himself as a solid domestic option with TIP, Team Coast, Dignitas and Apex.

LirA, a native of Korean, spent 2016 with Afreeca Freecs of League of Legends Champions Korea, and helping the team to a pair of first round playoff exists. The 21-year-old jungler was originally linked to Team Vitality, but “reneged on the deal following an expression of discomfort in Europe and competing with that team, according to sources,” also per Wolf.

The pair will replace jungler Kim “Procxin” Se-young and Benjamin “LOD” deMunck. The latter was announced to have joined Team Dignitas earlier this week.

A native of St. Louis, Missouri, David has been an avid fan of the NFL since since the late 90’s, which led to his desire to become a local sportswriter throughout high school. Things would change when he finally gave League of Legends a chance at the end of Season 4, in which he instantly became fascinated with the professional scene watching the NA playoffs. Apart from League, he enjoys watching Counter Strike, Halo and Overwatch. He’s also written for GosuGamers, Denial eSports and Renegades.
