100 Thieves posted a video announcement earlier today they have signed former CLG support Aphromoo for the 2018 season.
Zaqueri “Aphromoo” Black joins veterans Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho in top lane, William “Meteos” Hartman in the jungle, and Yoo “Ryu” Sang-wook in mid in one of the newest teams in the North American LCS. There is no announcement currently on who will join the lineup in the AD Carry role.
Aphromoo previously played support on CLG for almost four years, attending two World Championships as well as winning back to back NA LCS Championship titles in summer 2015 and Spring 2016. He was dropped by CLG during the off season when the decided to pick up former TSM support “Biofrost“.
Although 100 Thieves are one of the newest teams in the NA LCS, their focus is on signing veteran players. Rather than seek out new talent, 100 Thieves are banking on the combined experience of this veteran lineup to challenge their former team mates in the more established organizations, as well as the other newcomers of Clutch Gaming and Golden Guardians.
