LirA to Make Belated LCS Debut with EnVyUs

North America’s Team EnVyUs stumbled their way to a 0-2 start during the opening weekend of the League of Legends Championship Series, due to visa issues that forced them to compete without starting jungler Nam “LirA” Tae-yoo.

Their team’s fortunes have quickly been reversed, as EnVy announced late Wednesday night that LirA had his P1 Visa “in hand” and will be set to make his debut this weekend.

Without LirA’s visa approval, the team was forced to rotate starting mid laner Noh “Ninja” Geon-woo into the jungle position while having substitute Alexey “Alex Ich” Ichetovkin slide into mid lane. Though able to competently take the Rift, their results were unfavorable, losing matches to both Counter Logic Gaming and FlyQuest.

LirA, a native of South Korea, jungled the previous season for Afreeca Freecs, leading them to an appearance in the 2016 LCK Spring Playoffs. After reportedly reversing course on a deal with Team Vitality, LirA signed on with Envy to replace Kim “Procxin” Se-young.

The now-complete Envy roster will have some work to do to climb out of their 0-2 deficit, beginning with Phoenix1 and Immortals this Saturday.

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.
