In an exciting announcement that will shake up the NA competitive scene, Halcyon Hammers’ most recent team, Kinetic, will be revised with the following starting roster:

  • Lane: ttigers
  • Jungle: gabevizzle
  • Roam: SuiJeneris

If you’re not already familiar with any of these players, here’s a quick introduction.
