Is this the second coming of the Korean exodus? On 23th of November, Misfits Gaming officially announced that the team has signed Kang “GorillA” Beom-hyun, finalizing the team’s main roster.
IT'S HAPPENING ?
Welcome to EU, @lolGorillA!

GorillA joins the roster of Soaz, Maxlore, Feviben and Hans Sama, completing an “EU Super Team”. Misfits Gaming announced that GorillA has signed a one-year deal.
With this move, the PraY and GorillA duo, who have been together since 2015 will part ways. The duo has been renowned both within the LCK and internationally, praised for their individual talents and their synergy with one another.
With LCK supports such as GorillA and CoreJJ leaving the region, Mata, a veteran player renowned for his shot-calling, has risen in priority. With teams like KT and Gen.G severely lacking in power in the bot lane, GorillA’s presence will be sorely missed.
