He also led Bacon Time as the team’s coach in the Road to Glory 2020 where they secured first place in the qualifiers.

Mobile MOBA pro players transitioning to Wild Rift

A lot of mobile MOBA pro players have started to shift to playing Wild Rift. Aside from JJak, two of his former Talon Esports AoV teammates Kim ”HAK” Do-Yeop and Lee”Rush” Ho-Yeon have also shifted to Riot Games’ new mobile MOBA title and are playing under the Japanese Wild Rift esports team, Sengoku Gaming.

A former Mobile Legends pro player and content creator, SeongHun “Gosu Hoon” Jang, also announced his transition to Wild Rift and has joined the North American Wild Rift team, Immortals.

It will be interesting to see how these pro players can make use of the skills they acquired from other mobile MOBA titles to compete in future Wild Rift esports tournaments.
