DWG KIA parts ways with top laners Nuguri and Burdol

It's time for them to find a new home.

DWG KIA top laners Jang “Nuguri” Ha-gwon and Noh ‘Burdol’ Tae-yoon have left the League of Legends team and are looking for a new home ahead of the 2023 season.

The two players have been splitting games on DWG KIA’s roster this year, with Nuguri being the starting top laner for most of the season. That being said, Burdol participated in various crucial matches, such as the LCK Summer Playoffs against T1 and the Regional Finals versus Liiv SANDBOX.

Before joining DWG KIA, Burdol started his competitive career on T1’s academy teams in 2019 before becoming a substitute top laner for Gen.G in the 2021 season, where he got the chance to play at the World Championship. He was picked up at the end of the season by DWG KIA, playing the majority of the Spring Split before Nuguri’s return to the team.

Speaking of Nuguri, this is the second time Nuguri has left the team. He first joined DWG KIA in 2017, bringing the team to their first-ever World Championship in 2019. He later joined FPX for the 2021 season, finishing second in Spring and Summer, but had a terrible experience at Worlds, exiting in groups. The team’s collapse led to Nuguri taking a sabbatical, before rejoining DWG KIA in April.

Currently, there are no confirmations regarding Burdol or Nuguri’s next team. One thing is certain, however: DWG KIA will have to find a new top laner.

While the League offseason has started, players will be able to officially join new teams after the free agency period kicks off on Nov. 21.
