SK Gaming's League of Legends European Championship roster:Jorge 'Werlyb' Casanovas - Top lane
Werlyb is no stranger to the highest League of Legends competition in Europe, having played in the EU LCS for Giants and Fnatic. For the past year and then some he's been honing his skills in probably the strongest European national league, the Spanish one, where together with his former team MAD Lions he won multiple competitions including the 2018 European Masters Summer tournament. We're ecstatic to be bringing him back to the LEC as he's more than eager to prove he belongs there. You can follow him on social media on his Facebook, Twitter and Twitch accounts.
Really happy to announce that I'm the new @SKGaming toplaner. Can't wait for being in the LEC stage again.— Jorge 'Werlyb' (@werlyb_) December 20, 2018
He trabajado mucho estos últimos años para volver, espero representaros como os merecéis. pic.twitter.com/hAmZTLaMDd
Oskar 'Selfmade' Boderek - Jungle
Selfmade has played together with Werlyb for over a year and a half in the Spanish league and boasts the same amount of trophies as him. They are coming into our roster with an already established synergy which should surely ease his transition into the top echelon of League of Legends.

Junsik 'Pirean' Choi - Mid lane
Pirean is another veteran of the LCS, having played in the North American teams Team Impulse, Phoenix1 and Team Envy throughout 2016 and 2017. He spent 2018 in the Korean giants SK Telekom, splitting starting time in the mid lane with none other than Faker during the Summer Split. Now he is replacing the T for a G and looking to also leave his mark in Europe. You can find him on social media on Twitter, Instagram and Twitch.
Juš 'Crownshot' Marušič - ADC
Crownshot has played in the French and Spanish national leagues. He is the third member of the 2018 MAD Lions roster we've acquired and he will continue his collaboration with Werlyb and Selfmade, this time on a much larger stage. Settling in with a new bot lane partner might be a challenge at first but it's one he's eager to overcome and show his strengths in the LEC. Follow him on Twitter.
Min Kook 'Dreams' Han - Support
Dreams is no stranger to the European League of Legends competitions as he previously played in the Challenger scene for Misfits and Vitality Academy, as well as for Mysterious Monkeys in the 2017 EU LCS Summer Split. He's made his mark here and we're happy to give him the opportunity to continue his journey in Europe. Look forward to him forming a formidable partnership with Crownshot and follow him on Twitter.
