It has been revealed by certain sources that Cloud 9 has made an offer to NRG Esports to poach their top laner Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong. NRG has not yet confirmed these claims officially, but sources have confirmed that they had to inform Impact of the offer as part of their contract.
Impact is most commonly known as a world champion top-laner for SK Telecom T1 in the 2013 World championships.
Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong has been unable to find success since he moved to the North American scene, even while still performing at an extremely high standard.
In regards to the League Championship Series that just recently wrapped up, his current team NRG Esports finished equal 5th -6th place, tied along with Cloud 9! Even though NRG did have a fairly disappointing placement, the fault certainly did not lie within Impact’s performance.
Impact has scored one of the highest kill participation and damage output throughout all the top laners in the recent NA LCS. This shows that Impact certainly still has what it takes to join another top tier team, and yet again, become a second world time champion.
