Seoul Dynasty has named ‘Ana God’, Je-hong “ryujehong” Ryu as team captain during their sendoff ceremony in Seoul yesterday. This official announcement follows the absence of of former Lunatic-Hai team captain Esca from final Seoul Dynasty roster for the Overwatch League. Known for his spectacular plays as Ana which brought him the nickname ‘Ana God’, Je-Hong is also well known to be a very astute reader of he game and in theory should be the next shotcaller for the highly-favored Koreans.
