Official JDG’s announcement

After finishing third in the Spring Playoffs and missing out on the Mid Season Invitational 2024, JDG found Mafa’s replacement in WarHorse, the 2019 World Champion with FunPlus Phoenix and one of the league’s most prestigious coaches. WarHorse has previously been with teams like Flash Wolves and Top Esports, and his strength in defining stylistic traits in rosters has been one of his most attractive features.
