  • Top lane: Colin “Solo” Earnest
  • Jungle: Lucas “Santorin” Larsen
  • Mid lane: Yongjun “Fly” Song
  • Bot lane: Richard “Rikara” Oh
  • Support: Mingi “Madlife” Hong

eUnited NA CS Team Logo LoLeUnited is North American multi-gaming organization with teams in League of Legends, Call of Duty and other online games and tournaments. What makes this team stand out is the fact their players are talented and strong in their positions individually.

Members of this team are:

  • Top lane: Eric “Licorice” Ritchie
