Lava   Mid    ROX Tigers

After Mickey left ROX unexpectedly, the team needed some new blood in the mid lane. While Crow will be starting for now, Lava was also picked up to back up the mid lane. Not much is known about Lava, but we did get some information on him from LCK caster Chris "PapaSmithy" Smith. He said on Twitter that Lava previously played for SKT as a support under the name TaeHoon. He's now switched roles to mid laner, so it will be interesting to see how he does in the new role if given a chance to get in by ROX.
