Radiance GG, a brand new esports organisation led by former North American (NA) League of Legends pro Hai “Hai” Lam, has announced its plans to enter the League of Legends competitive scene.
It’s officially unveiled its first roster on all of its social media channels and we’ve linked the announcement just below:
Introducing Radiance’s first official team, League of Legends! Formerly members of the amateur LoL team Buff Katarina, these players are hungry to play professionally. Its important to us to help them grow as players and individuals as they move towards the next big thing. pic.twitter.com/eQj5VK5XuKRadiance (@RadianceGG) March 18, 2019
Here’s a rundown of the squad:
- Top: Aetheres
- Jungle: OddOrange
- Mid: KatEvolved
- ADC: Jurassiq
- Support: Winter
Radiance’s roster is largely comprised of former amateur LoL team “Buff Katarina” and they are all currently highly ranked in NA’s solo queue. Many of them have also competed in the LCS before under different organisations - as subs or within Academy squads - so they’re certainly not new to the scene.
The only player to come straight from solo queue is “KatEvolved” who’s been able to maintain his Challenger status for a staggering four years as a Katarina one-trick. Oh, and he first reached Challenger at just 15 years old, so he’s certainly one to watch.
The squad has performed well in previous amateur tournaments, and now that they're all together under a proper esports organisation there's no reason why they can't develop into serious LCS contenders in the future.
