"Gamsu" returning to League of Legends scene

Retired Overwatch League star Young-jin "Gamsu" Noh has made a return to League of Legends by signing for 100 Thieves' amateur team.

The announcement of "Gamsu" moving Esports comes in the midst of the LOL Mid-Season Invitational, in which PSG Talon are 2.20 to beat MAD Lions, who are 1.61 to win, on Sunday.

As part of a number of summer roster changes, "Gamsu" has joined the amateur side named 100 Thieves Next as top laner - a position he formerly had during his time with Fnatic.

Fnatic were the last LOL outfit the player represented professionally but despite playing with big names such as "Spirit", "Febiven", "Rekkles" and "YellOwStaR", he could only help them to sixth place in the spring and fifth place in the summer.

"Gamsu" then decided to switch LOL for the Overwatch League, turning out for the likes of Boston Uprising, Shanghai Dragons, and the Dallas Fuel between 2017 and 2020.

Last year, though, he announced his intention to return to the LOL Pro League and it is thought he will be taking up a mentor-type role in the amateur side, who will be playing in the Challengers Uprising event of the 2021 Proving Grounds Circuit this month.

Speaking about the move, the 100 Thieves general manager Chris "PapaSmithy" Smith said: "The amount of hard work Gamsu has had to put in to reach his current level after five years away from pro League is insane, both in terms of play and what he can teach our four young stars about becoming a professional esports player."
