Gamsu Joins Dignitas After Seven Years

Gamsu Joins Dignitas After Seven Years

Overwatch League veteran player, Noh "Gamsu" Yeong-jin, will return to play in the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS).

Overwatch League veteran player, Noh “Gamsu” Yeong-jin, will return to play in the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS). As revealed, the Korean multi-esports title pro player will join Dingintas as the starting top laner for the LoL 2022 Spring season.

Gamsu Returns

As announced on Wednesday, May 18, Dignitas have signed Gamsu as the team’s starting top laner for the 2022 LCS Summer. Gamsu will replace Aaron “FakeGod” Lee, who was cut from the roster in April and will return to the organization he has played for seven years ago.

Gamsu originally played under the Dignitas banner in the 2016 LCS season before enjoying a short stint in Europe and retiring from professional LoL.

The 27-year-old Korean esports star kicked off his LoL career in 2013 with a Korean squad Alienware Andromeda before joining Samsung Blue as a substitute top laner and moving overseas to compete in the LCS with Dignitas.

Over the one season he has spent with Dignitas, Gamsu hasn’t achieved much, albeit he helped the team place top-four at IEM Season 9 Cologne and place top-six in the NA LCS Summer Playoffs. Ahead of the 2016 season, Gamsu left to play for Fnatic, with who he finished top-three at IEM Season 10 Cologne and claimed a silver medal at IEM Season 10 World Championship.

Even domestically, Gamsu achieved a lot with the Black&Orange, finishing third in the EU LCS 2016 Spring Playoffs and fifth in the EU LCS 2016 Summer. But unfortunately, that wasn’t enough for the team to qualify for the LoL World Championship.

Ahead of the next season, Fnatic decided to make changes and parted ways with Gamsu, who announced his retirement from professional LoL shortly after. But even though Gamsu decided to move away from LoL, he continued his esports career elsewhere – in Overwatch.

A Multi-Esports Talent

Gamsu was one of the most notable esports players who successfully transitioned from one esports title to another and did so seamlessly. As a long-time League of Legends player, Gamsu did not need long to make a name for himself in the Overwatch League.

The Korean esports pro transitioned to Overwatch in 2016 and has spent three seasons in the Overwatch League, between 2018 and 2020, as a player for three different teams. Playing the role of the main tank, Gamsu represented Boston Uprising, Shanghai Dragons, and Dallas Fuel.

Although he did not win a single Overwatch League title, he has helped Shanghai Dragons win Overwatch League – 2019 Stage 3 Playoffs and led Boston Uprising to a top-six finish at Overwatch League – Inaugural Season Playoffs.

After an unsuccessful season with Dallas Fuel in 2020, Gamsu decided to step away from the game and take a break from the competition. His break lasted until last year when Gamsu revealed that he was ready to return to League of Legends.

At the time, he got picked up by 100 Thieves, who first added him to the 100T amateur squad, 100 Thieves next, and eventually promoted him to the academy team. With 100 Thieves Academy, Gamsu finished in second place during this split’s Proving Grounds, showing that he still can play LoL at a high level.

Now, Gamsu will take one step further as he joins Dignitas for the 2022 LCS Summer Split, marking Gamsu’s return to the LCS for the first time since 2015.

During his last stay at Dignitas, Gamsu has played alongside the likes of Shin “Helios” Dong-jin, Danny “Shiphtur” Le, Alan “KiWiKiD” Kieu, and Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in.

Of his former teammates, CoreJJ is the only still-active player in the LoL scene, currently playing for one of the top teams in the LCS, Team Liquid.
