Bengi, who was formerly a jungler for SK Telecom T1 has joined the organisation as a coach. According to a tweet published by the organisation on Monday, this also means that PoohManDu will reprise his coaching role.

The tweet does not get into the specific duties, however, it does state that the two coaches will assist the head coach, kkOma, with the development of strategies.

Bengi is a three time world champion, and will be reunited with former teammates Bang, Wolf, Faker and Blank. Bengi had departed the SKT roster in November 2016 to sign with ViCi Gaming as a jungler in the LPL. He played there until May 2017. PoohManDu had a similar experience, moving to ViCi as a coach until May 2017.

As it stands, SKT retain a player in each position on the Summoner’s Rift, but it is not yet clear as to whether or not the Korean side will make any signings before the spring split.

My first video game was Tonka Construction for the PC. I played that in 2000, at 3 years of age, and have been hooked by video games ever since. I like to dabble in as many games as I possibly can, but nothing can come close to a captivating story, an intense multiplayer experience or a well made RTS game. In 2015, I found what can only be described as passion and love for esports. Now I convey that passion, love and knowledge through articles about esports titles, most notably Counter Strike.
