NA LCS team, Clutch Gaming recently announced their full roster for the 2018 season.
One of the latest teams to join the North American League of Legends Championship Series, Clutch Gaming has announced their complete roster. The roster consists of top laner Colin “Solo” Earnest, jungler Nam “LirA” Tae-yoo, mid laner Fabian “Febiven” Diepstraten, AD Carry Apollo “Apollo” Price, and support Nickolas “Hakuho” Surgent; veterans from North America, South Korea, and Europe.

Top laner Solo has some experience in the NA LCS after playing for Echo Fox during the 2016 Spring Split after their starting laner was unable to play due to visa issues. Aside from a brief taste of playing in the NA LCS, Solo has played in a variety of Challenger Series teams including Cloud9 Challenger, Team Liquid Academy, and Gold Coin United.
LirA on the other hand has played in a variety of League of Legends Champions Korea teams including KT Rolster Arrows and Afreeca Freecs. After leaving Afreeca Freecs, the jungler found his way to North American shores after he joined Team EnVyUs. Most known for his early junglers like Elise and Lee Sin, LirA will surely look to assist his laners and give them an early advantage.
Their Dutch midlaner, Febiven makes his debut in an North American team after playing in the European LCS teams, Fnatic and H2k-Gaming. His mechanical skill on assassins and control mages while requiring minimal resources has proven to be one of his biggest strengths.
Their bottom lane duo, Apollo and Hakuho are no stranger to each other having played the 2017 season together in Team EnVyUs along with jungler LirA. Apollo has shown to prefer utility AD Carries but have also played a wide variety of champions while Hakuho has played a variety of support champions but seems to lean more towards casters.
The team will surely look to make a good impression in their first NA LCS season. Along with this, the veterans will look to impress especially after some of them struggled through the 2017 season.
