Summit reportedly chose the LCS route over MAD Lions for 2023

Summit

A big wildcard for the 2023 season has reportedly decided to explore options in the LCS, as Park “Summit” Woo-tae chose the region over an offer from MAD Lions in the LEC. 

In a report on Instagram, Brieuc “LEC Wooloo” Seeger revealed that Summit would likely be in the LCS next year. Summit played under Cloud9 during the 2022 LCS Spring Split, followed by one split in the LPL with FunPlus Phoenix. 

After a turbulent 2022 season, it seems that MAD Lions got close to a deal with the Korean top laner, but it didn’t go that way. Instead, Summit “denied the LEC team as he decided to explore his options in the LCS,” according to Wooloo.

MAD Lions going with Chasy after missing Summit deal

If Summit had agreed on a deal with MAD Lions, the upcoming split would be his first in the LEC. It would be the fourth major region to his resume, as he has already played in the LCK, LCS, and LPL. 

It didn’t end like that, though, as MAD Lions is reportedly signing Kim “Chasy” Dong-hyeon to replace İrfan Berk “Armut” Tükek. Chasy played the 2021 season with DWG KIA Challengers before joining X7 Esports in May to compete in the NLC. 

It’s no surprise that Summit was the priority for MAD Lions, as he did well with C9 in the LCS before flopping in the spring playoffs. His showing on FPX was decent but not enough to qualify for the 2022 World Championship. Summit ended his season in the 2022 LPL Summer Playoffs, after losing to EDward Gaming 1-3. 

Now that Summit is seemingly heading back to the LCS for his redemption, it will be interesting to see where he ends up. Many teams are reportedly cutting their budgets for 2023, but Summit could still be a valuable addition for some teams. 

One thing is sure; Summit will be aggressive as he has always been and a complete joy to watch in the North American league if he secures a spot.
