Vici Gaming has announced the signing of mid laner Chu “FoFo” Chun-Lan, with the 21-year-old having previously represented BiliBili Gaming. Many had already put Vici Gaming down as the team to watch ahead of the 2021 LPL season, with the organization having clearly been working hard on rebuilding.
FoFo will be joined by two new coaches at Vici Gaming, with Head Coach Zhu “Loong” Xiao-Long set to be in charge next year, who will be supported by Assistant Coach Xu “Endless” Hao. Meanwhile, in what has been a busy week of movement for Vici Gaming, substitute mid laner Deng “Forge” Jie has been released by the organization.
Why Vici Gaming Made Their Move for FoFo
The signing of FoFo appears to be a good one for Vici Gaming, despite the Taiwanese player having developed a reputation as being difficult to work with. The mid laner almost single handedly led BiliBili Gaming to a host of wins last season, with many believing that his skills could well be a major benefit to Hu “iBoy” Xian-Zhao, Vici’s star man.
Vici ran out winners at last month’s LPL-organized tournament, NEST, an event which saw many of the best young talents from the Chinese League compete. As a result, confidence should be high in their ranks, with something special potentially happening in 2021 if they can find a way to get the best out of their star names. The partnership between FoFo and iBoy has already got many fans excited.
How FoFo Made His Name in League of Legends
FoFo began his professional League of Legends career with the Taipei Assassins back in November 2015, before he moved to the J Team in April 2016. He spent three years with the team, before he was snapped up by BiliBili Gaming 12 months ago. He will now take time to get to grips with his new teammates and the style of play at Vici Gaming. However, if he can pick up where he left off with BiliBili, then Vici could well be a force to be reckoned with in 2021.
