kkOma joins DAMWON Gaming with the very recent news of Daeny and Zefa both heading to T1. Meanwhile, Joker re-signs as SANDBOX Gaming’s coach

Within an hour after the move of Zefa and Daeny was announced, DAMWON Gaming makes an announcement of their hiring for the open positions. Also, SandBox retains one of their own to move forward.

Kim “kkOma” Jeong-gyun now joins DAMWON Gaming as the coach of DAMWON Gaming. After losing their head coach and another coach to T1, they had to make the move to refill one of those positions. kkOma is the coach that was part of the T1 dynasty and now he joins another team which is coming off a Worlds trophy.

T1 had shown interest in bringing back kkOma but reportedly kkOma refused to join back to T1.


On another side of the LCK, SANDBOX Gaming extend Cho “Joker” Jae-eup as a coach of the team. SANDBOX Gaming had a good showing in the middle to later parts of the last season and he was a big part of that. Hence, Sandbox Gaming decided to extend him to a new contract.
