We previously reported that mid laner Lee "GBM" Chang-seok and jungler Choi "DanDy" In-kyu were set to join eUnited. At the time of the first report, there was no agreement set in stone.
As of May 10, 2017 - GBM and DanDy are both members of eUnited.
We are very proud to announce that we have signed GBM and DanDy to the League of Legends roster!— eUnited (@eUnitedgg) May 10, 2017

Hello everyone :D https://t.co/ebO24BGkkH— 최인규 (@driveng1) May 10, 2017
GBM and DanDy will replace Erberk "Gilius" Demir and mid laner Hampus "Fox" Myhre. Both Gilius and Fox are still currently unsigned.
GBM most recently was a member of Team Vitality where he was their substitute mid laner as well as jungler. Historically, GBM acted as a mid laner but decided to learn the jungle in order to diversify himself and open more opportunities. Prior to that, GBM was a member of NRG Esports from 2015-2016.
For DanDy, this will be his return to professional play. DanDy has not played since 2016 while he was a member of Vici Gaming. A fan favorite and seen as a legend in the jungle to some, before Vici, DanDy was a member of Samsung Galaxy White where he won the 2014 League of Legends World Championship.
eUnited will welcome their recent reinforcements with open arms. After going 3-2-0 during the 2017 NA CS, eUnited were pegged as a favorite in the promotion tournament. Unfortunately, the team struggled mightily and dropped games to both Team Liquid and Team EnVyUs who ended up reclaiming their spots within the NA LCS.
As it stands, eUnited is comprised of the following:
- Top - Eric "Licorice" Ritchie
- Jungle - Choi "DanDy" In-kyu
- Mid - Lee "GBM" Chang-suk
- ADC - Tristan "Zeyzal"
- Support - Matthew "Deftly" Chen
