Immortals (IMT) have reorganized their entire roster in huge ways to gear up for the 2017 season. These changes also include everyone’s favorite top laner, Seong “Huni” Hoon Heo, as it has been announced he’ll be leaving IMT and replacing Lee “Duke” Ho-seong as the new SK Telecom (SKT) top laner.

This will mark the first time Huni and Kim “Reignover” Ui-jin haven’t been together to tear up the Rift with their amazing synergy. They played together on Fnatic in 2015, going 18-0 in the summer split before eventually falling to SKT in the LCS Semifinals. They then moved to Immortals where they continued to dominate, going 17-1 and 16-2 in the Spring and Summer Splits, but got cut short at 3rd place–barely missing their chance at the LCS stage this year.
Keep an eye on Huni and the rest of the Korean League Champion series as the rosters have been flipped on their head and hints that 2017 will be an exciting year.
