Driving the ship: Huhi is the linchpin to Golden Guardians’ LCS success

Golden Guardians’ spring has been the best story of the 2023 LCS season thus far. After an up-and-down Spring Split, Golden Guardians have guaranteed themselves a top-three finish in the LCS Spring Playoffs and are one series away from qualifying for the 2023 Mid-Season Invitational as one of North America’s two representatives.

Golden Guardians’ triumph is a textbook group effort: The org’s staff has managed to build and maintain a roster that exceeded expectations and has continued to grow throughout the season. At some point in 2023, every Golden Guardians player has been in the spotlight. Jungler Kim “River” Dong-woo and mid laner Kim “Gori” Tae-woo formed a fearsome one-two punch for the squad, with Gori receiving first team All-Pro honors for his performance in his first LCS split. AD carry Trevor “Stixxay” Hayes is playing better than he has in six years. And Eric “Licorice” Ritchie has resurfaced as a carry top lane threat in the postseason.
