EG star Danny in doubt for LoL Worlds 2022 as Kaori joins roster

Danny, the player who brought glory to Evil Geniuses as the “Prince of Pentakills”, may not be playing at Worlds 2022. Kaori has been confirmed to be on the EG roster after he subbed in for the Playoffs Finals.

Kyle ‘Danny’ Sakamaki has quickly become one of the biggest names in the LCS. During a time when import players are the norm in the LCS, both Danny and Joseph ‘jojopyun‘ Joon Pyun have been leading names for the next generation of North American talent.

His hard carry playstyle was a huge factor in Evil Geniuses’ back-to-back 3-0 wins at the Spring Finals in Houston, and he continued to be a boon for this team through the Summer Split.

However, after EG’s narrow 3-2 win against TSM, Danny stepped away from EG. Muhammed ‘Kaori’ Hasan Şentürk filled Danny’s spot as ADC during EG’s final set in Playoffs, and he’ll be staying on EG through Worlds 2022.
