Kim “Reignover” Yeu-jin got promoted to the head coach role for Cloud9’s League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) team.
Reignover began his League of Legends esports career back in 2013 when he played for team Incredible Miracle 2. Later, he played for teams such as Fnatic, Immortals, and Team Liquid before becoming the head coach for the Cloud9 Academy roster.
While he was part of the Incredible Miracle 2 team in Korea, it was in 2015 when Reignover moved over to the EU region and joined team Fnatic. With Fnatic, he and his teammates achieved a 13-5 record during the Riot 2015 Season Championship Series. Reignover then helped the team qualify for the 2015 League of Legends World Championship. Fnatic had a great run in the tournament and advanced to the semifinals.
In 2016, Reignover made the move to the NA region and joined the Immortals. He was able to be part of a 17-1 record in a spring regular season for the Riot 2016 Season Championship Series. That same summer, he helped achieve a score of 16-2.
Since his move to coaching League of Legends players, he was able to help Cloud9 Academy accomplish multiple first place standings. This included the NA Academy League 2020 Spring Season and the subsequent summer tournaments.
“Reignover has proven himself as an incredibly capable head coach on our Academy team during the 2020 season by developing the players and bringing home back-to-back titles,” Jonathan Tran, Cloud9’s League of Legends general manager, said in a statement.
Tran added that Reignover’s player-focused approach allowed him to create an open environment. This was especially important in terms of discussing and addressing any problems and improving upon them. Combined with his previous experience as a League of Legends player, his promotion to the head coach for the LCS team would be exciting for the upcoming season.
