Peter Dun in new function with even more possibilities
The most significant point, is that Peter Dun has been promoted to the new Head of League of Legends Coaching Staff. Dun is to lead the Evil Geniuses coaching staff and enjoys all the freedom.
Peter Dun has earned all the respect as the LCS Head Coach of last year’s Evil Geniuses team, among the officials and the players. Dun is considered a vocal supporter of new, young talent.
