Beneath our roster swaps and bombshell signings lies a dedication to an efficient work environment and a foundation of success. At the core of this foundation is a world class support staff with the ability to facilitate the diverse needs of our players. As a Korean native, former professional support, veteran MOBA competitor, and most recently player manager, Dodo is a complete package a perfect fit for our 2018 roster.
Dodo holds a crucial role in the coming weeks as our team familiarizes themselves with their new environment and working conditions. His fluency in Korean and experience with several members of our roster offer an edge during this process and the continued development of synergy and communication amongst our players. We’re excited for Dodo’s active role in our League of Legends support staff and look forward the experience he brings to our organization.
