Duke Departs Invictus Gaming League of Legends Lineup

Duke announced his departure from Invictus Gaming on Thursday

Lee "Duke" Ho-seong announced plans to leave Invictus Gaming on Thursday, ending a three-year stretch with the Chinese team. His statement, published on Weibo, did not reveal which team he planned to join.

Duke made his name playing in League of Legends Champions Korea. The top laner began his career on KT Rolster Bullets in 2013 before moving to NaJin Black Sword in May 2014. Later that year Duke moved to NaJin e-mFire, but Duke's profile increased substantially when he moved to SK Telecom T1 ahead of its 2016 League of Legends World Championship victory.

Following that Worlds win, Duke moved to the League of Legends Pro League in China and joined Invictus Gaming, where he's remained since. With Invictus, Duke picked up his second Worlds win in 2018. The team has struggled more in 2019, finishing at seventh-eighth place in the LPL 2019 summer playoffs.
