He is famous for his Rumble and his Lissandra, but also for being the only player in League of Legends history to have attended Worlds on behalf of three different regions. According to ESPN, toplaner Heo 'Huni' Seung-hoon has apparently renewed his contract with Clutch Gaming.
His contract with the NA org was due to end following the 2019 season, but negotiations are reportedly being finalized which will see him sign a two-year contract extension worth roughly $2.3 million.
Clutch Gaming are soon to rebrand into Team Dignitas. The famous name is returning to the LCS stage for the first time since the end of 2017, after not having been initially selected when franchising came to the North American circuit. Now, they will be expecting Huni to lead their return.
Clutch Gaming had a pretty rough season, ending this season's splits in ninth and fifth place respectively. However, their journey didn't stop there — it was actually just the beginning. They finished fourth in the LCS Summer Playoffs, meaning they qualified for the LCS Regional Finals. There, they gave a good showing — firstly by beating FlyQuest, then Counter Logic Gaming.
They eventually booked their tickets for the Worlds Play-In Stage by defeating Team SoloMid.
After a week, they managed to qualify for the Group Stage and were placed in the 'group of death' alongside Fnatic, SKT T1 and Royal Never Give Up — and their journey ended there. Clutch Gaming didn't achieve a single victory during this phase, and their season concluded with their elimination from Worlds.
After a pretty bad season, 100 Thieves just announced the recruitment of Zikz as Head Coach for the upcoming LCS season.
