After a break of seven years from the League of Legends Championship Series, Dignitas QNTMPAY have signed Korean top laner Noh “Gamsu” Young-jin for the 2022 summer split. League of Legends insider Alejandro Gomis broke the news for blix.gg.

Gamsu formerly played for Dignitas from late 2014 to late 2015 before switching games and eventually competing in the Overwatch League. Now, after retiring from Overwatch, he has fought his way back to the LCS after a strong stint on 100 Thieves Academy.

Gamsu’s return to Dignitas

Gamsu initially impressed by helping 100 Thieves’ Next, the organization’s amateur team, qualify and compete in tournaments like Challengers Uprising Season 3. Most notably, he helped the team reach a third-place finish at EGL Summer Showdown 2021.

When he was promoted alongside Next teammate Maximilian “Chad” Lisitsa to 100 Thieves Academy, everything clicked. In his first tournament with the roster, they won the LCS Proving Grounds Summer 2021.

With the two new players, the roster made a mark as the best Academy team in the region.  Gamsu continued to show what he could do, finishing second in the NA Scouting Grounds in 2022. As the new year came around, he remained on 100 Thieves Academy despite many other changes.

Gamsu was the only returning player from that 2021 Academy roster, but the team continued to fight against the best Academy and amateur teams. In LCS Proving Grounds Spring 2022, Gamsu proved the title last summer was no fluke by finishing in second place with an entirely new cast around him. So, when 100 Thieves announced Gamsu was departing, the hint of a promotion to a major league seemed possible.

Dignitas’ future with Gamsu

If there is one thing Gamsu is known for in his League career, it is consistency. With this signing, he is one of the few players in esports history to have played at the top level in two different esports three separate times (Fnatic, Shanghai Dragons and now Dignitas).

His experience in esports at only 27 years old is immense. Now the oldest player on Dignitas, he can add another veteran presence to the rest of the Dignitas roster.
