Unfortunately, disaster struck as team players tested positive for COVID one after the other, leaving only xNova eligible to play against Entity during their best-of-1 elimination match – twoGD previewed a scene wherein only xNova took to the stage against Entity while four teddy bears stood in for his teammates during an extended 102 minute fight wherein xNova scored multiple Roshans and amassed 131,000 gold leads throughout.
Rekkles has long been one of the premier AD Carry players in League history. While with Fnatic he won multiple LEC splits and placed second at Worlds 2018, but in 2021 left to join G2 Esports’ super roster.
Later he joined Karmine Corp to compete in the local league LFL; however, their season wasn’t particularly fruitful: during a winner’s bracket loss to LDLC OL 0-3, and finishing 2nd overall.
He recently posted a video discussing his struggles with his team. He attributes their troubles to poor synergy, with their confidence plummeting quickly. Furthermore, he spoke about teamwork’s significance within League and believes that they’ll become even stronger over time.
Royal Never Give Up have strengthened their roster by recruiting Kang “TRY” Tae-wook as coach, who previously led Alter Ego. TRY brings an exceptional combination of refined strategies and flawless mechanical execution skills that he brings with him from coaching Alter Ego.
Choi “inSec” In-seok is an experienced League of Legends esports player who most recently served as jungler for Winners. He made his debut at NLB Spring 2012 and helped his team defeat Light in the finals to earn a place in Azubu The Champions Summer 2012.
InSec is best-known for popularizing the Insec Kick technique, which involves ward-jumping behind an opponent during their second cast of Q and using Dragon’s Rage to kick them back towards your team with Dragon’s Rage. This became a mainstay in Lee Sin’s repertoire and is still considered an insane mechanical outplay by many casters today.
RNG entered MSI 2023 as one of the favourites, and they certainly delivered. Their playoff run went flawlessly without dropping a series despite dominating all opponents ranked lower than them; however, RNG struggled when up against lesser ranked teams that they faced off against more often.

In order to solve this, they recruited Dale “signed” Tang and Ali “SWERL” Kobraee from Oceania as players with great characters like Dale’signed” Tang from Oceania who allowed for team growth and individual player’s roles they desired – key ingredients in their success!
