Sandbox Gaming announced on 21st of November KST the signing of Yoo “FATE” Su-hyeok as their new mid laner.
FATE had previously played for Brion Blades in Challengers Korea this season. A young and upcoming mid laner, FATE displayed great potential during his time in CK, which Sandbox had evidently noticed.
It is likely that FATE will be competing for the starting role against SB’s current mid laner Kim “Dove” Jae-yeon. With this signing, it’s evident that Sandbox will once again be relying on the signing and nurturing of young talents in order to find success in the LCK.
Sandbox Gaming had made it to playoffs in both splits in their first season. A team made up of young talents, they have opted to stick to their identity, recruiting former Jin Air AD carry Moon “Route” Geom-su during the offseason to make up for the loss of their bot laner Jang “Ghost” Yong-jun.
