The details

Kim Gang-yun, (김강윤) better known as Trick, is a South Korean League of Legends player who is the jungler for G2 Esports of the European League of Legends Championship Series (EU LCS). He won the 2016 Spring EU LCS and 2016 Summer EU LCS with G2. In the latter he earned the split MVP award.


Kim "Trick" Gang-yun joined CJ Entus as a jungle substitute in December 2014. He played his first game in July 2015 against SBENU Sonicboom during SBENU Champions Summer 2015. He is currently a substitute for Ambition. CJ Entus placed third in the regular season but lost 3-0 to the KOO Tigers in the second round of playoffs. CJ had enough circuit points to qualify for the 2015 Season Korea Regional Finals but they lost 3-2 to the Jin Air Green Wings. Trick did not play in playoffs or the regionals. Trick left the team in November.

In late December, Trick moved to Europe to and joined G2 Esports of the EU LCS, as their new starting jungler, G2 also signed Emperor and YoungBuck as coach. The team quickly rose to prominence and recognition in the LCS, consistently tied for first place after each week, sometimes with H2k and sometimes also with Team Vitality, until the end of the split when they held first place with sole possession. With a quarterfinal bye, the playoffs also saw them strong, as they defeated both Fnatic and Origen 3-1 to win the season and secure an invitation to the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational.

Going into MSI, G2 Esports were seen as a favorite not to win, but to come in second place to the Korean representatives SK Telecom T1. However, the team lost their first four games of the round robin and ultimately finished in fifth place, ahead of only SuperMassive eSports, and out of playoff contention - importantly, this placement meant that Europe would forfeit their Pool 1 seed at Worlds. In a statement published partway through the second day of play, G2 stated that their players had taken vacation time after a "rigorous Spring Split." AD carry Emperor later stated that there had been an internal conflict within the team one day prior to the start of the event.
