SK Gaming has finished its League of Legends roster after signing former FC Schalke 04 jungler Kim “Trick” Gang-yun and former Ad Hoc Gaming support player Dino “LIMIT” Tot. With this roster change, the German esports organization hopes to make it out of the LEC bottom half bracket.

SK Gaming sign LIMIT, Trick
“We are a team full of rookies and untapped potential. There is a lot to learn but when the split starts we are going to challenge every team with aggression from level one until the end,” commented Peter “Unlimited” Georgiev, Head Coach of SK Gaming, in a statement.
The two players will join top laner Toni “Sacre” Sabalic, mid laner Janik “Jenax” Bartels in the mid lane, and bot laner Juš “Crownshot” Marušič. SK Gaming will also be bolstered by assistant coach Paul “Kanani” Khouani as it heads into the 2020 League of Legends European Championship (LEC) season.
SK Gaming entered the LEC with a brand new roster after placing 3 – 4th in the 2018 ESL Meisterschaft Winter Playoffs. However, the team didn’t do well in the 2019 LEC Spring Split with a 6th place finish and didn’t recover in the Summer Split either. With these poor results, the organization parted ways with Choi “Pirean” Jun-sik, Selfmade, and Dreams who left to Sengoku Gaming, Fnatic, and FC Schalke 04 respectively.
2020 LEC Season
“After many talks in the offseason, we are very happy that we put together a team with huge potential. We wanted to find the right balance between experience and talent to build a team around Jenax, Sacre and Crownshot which reaches playoffs and tries their hardest to surprise our fans,” said René Spanier, the League of Legends General Manager of SK Gaming.
Even though SK Gaming has signed new players for the 2020 LEC Spring Split, it may not have a chance this next split either. Teams like G2 Esports, Fnatic, Splyce, and FC Schalke 04 have done the same, and there are only three spots to the world championships every year from the LEC.
