Expect the League of Legends (LoL) roster for Cloud9 to look drastically different for the Summer Split portion for the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) a little more than a month away. Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong, regarded as one of the best top laners in the North American scene, will be donning blue and white. Sources report Impact agreeing to a deal with the Cloud9 organization. Negotiations began more than a week ago when Cloud9 contacted Impact’s previous team, NRG, about acquiring the former world champion.
Impact’s recruitment comes just in time. Cloud9 hopes to start an LCS boot camp in Korea with its completely restructured roster in the next few weeks to prepare for the summer split.
