Yet another sub Mid Laner for the defending World Champions SKT T1 makes the move over to China's LPL.
Seemingly following in the footsteps of Lee "Easyhoon" Ji-hun, SKT T1 announced the transfer of their sub Mid Laner Lee "Scout" Ye-chan to the LPL team EDward Gaming. The move comes off the back of the top-ranked Korean solo-queue player being nowhere to be seen this whole LCK season, only playing one game for SKT T1 on Lulu in a loss to Jin Air Green Wings back in January.
Perhaps wanting to get a better chance to show off his skills and get out from under of the shadow of Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok, Scout now finds himself in under the shadow of former World Champion Mid Laner Heo "PawN" Won-seok. He will also compete with Kang "Athena" Ha-woon, who bested Scout in the 2015 KeSPA Cup while on ESC Ever, for playing time.
