Gen.G fans have reason to be excited for the 2022 season. A jungle pick up, support reveal and mid lane announcement have made their fans quite excited for what is to come in the next season.
Gen.G has been built around Ruler for the longest time now. He’s been part of the org since they took over Samsung and has even won a World Championship in 2017. The team has done well domestically but struggler on an international level. This roster could change things.

Experience in the Jungle and Support
Gen.G have picked up Han “Peanut” Wang-ho who will be replacing Kim “Clid” Tae-min in the jungle. Peanut has never won a World Championship, but he’s gotten darn close quite a few times. He’s also a favorite of the League of Legends community.
His experience is going to be a key role for Gen.G as they try to finally have an impact on an international level after so many attempts. Will 2022 be their year?

They’ve also picked up Son “Lehends” Si-woo who is known to be a great support player. He’s also had his share of experience both in the LCK and internationally. He’s also someone who has played together with the star mid laner Gen.G have picked up on November 24, 2021.
Welcome, Chovy— Gen.G Esports (@GenG) November 24, 2021
It is our pleasure to announce that midlaner Jihoon 'Chovy' Jeong will be joining the Gen.G LoL team for the 2022 season. Join us in giving him a warm welcome to the team!#WeAreGenG #GenG #Chovy pic.twitter.com/zOWXk41ic1
Chovy Signed with Gen.G
Chovy was one of the most sought-after mid laners in the off-season. No one can beat him in a 1-vs-1 and throughout the 2020 season, he carried Hanwha Life on his back. Will that be the case in Gen.G? Probably not. With Ruler in the bot lane, the team is always dangerous as well.
This is the chance Chovy has of showing just why there is so much hype around him. He’s a great individual player who has had bad luck in the past few years. With the Gen.G roster of the 2022 season, this could be a team that can contend with DAMWON KIA.
Doran in the Top Lane
Another ex-Griffin player has also joined Gen.G in Choi “Doran” Hyeon-joon. He has shown great skill in the top lane and is one of the best top lane pick-ups this off-season. He is going to be an important part of this Gen.G roster.
Three players of the 2019 Griffin squad have returned, so will they also be able to emulate the same results as back then? The team was one of the best to come out of Korea but imploded due to internal drama between coaching, players and management.
With a decent org, will Lehends, Chovy and Doran be able to showcase greatness?
