Afreeca Blue will be signing Mano and Amy in place of Jin and yesman. This move comes in wake of the teamś decision to be more flexible with their roster picks. The current meta of triple tanks with an Ana is pretty stale. With blizzard actively working to changing the current meta and making sure there is more flexibility in the picks, Afreeca Blue is looking to be more flexible with their picks.
It’s a big challenge and a tough time for Mano and AMY, but I hope that this IEM gives them inspiration on their road to becoming a top tier player.
The addition of Mano into the mix could solve a lot of the problems for this team if he can take the weight of any tanks that the others lack ability on. In the short term, in this heavily tank-focused patch, AF.Blue will need to quickly develop a proficient system with Mano in it.
The current roster for Afreeca Blue :
- Park “Dayfly” Jeong-hwan (support)
- Ahn “AMY” Min-yeong (flex support)
- Kim “adam” Yoon-hik (tank)
- Kim “Mano” Dong-gyu (tank)
- Jeong “ArHaN” Weon-hyeop (flex dps)
- Jeong “recry” Taek-hyun (dps)
- Kim ”TaiRong” Tae-yeong (coach)
