ROX Gaming signs pro Tekken player Jaemin “Knee” Bae, making their entry into the FGC
Knee joins major League of Legends imprint, ROX Gaming.
Jaemin “Knee” Bae has finally been signed, and it has been a long time coming. He joins gaming organization ROX Gaming, known for their League of Legends team ROX Tigers. This makes the organizations first entry into the FGC, and with a Tekken player at that.
Knee is considered by many to be the best Tekken player to ever grace the game. He is celebrated as a legend in the Tekken world. He recently placed 3rd at EVO 2017, 2nd at Thaigger Uppercut, and is currently 2nd on the Asia-Pacific leaderboard of the Tekken World Tour.
“We were impressed with Knee’s consistent level of play and his ability to perform at the highest level for over a decade now. With the Tekken World Tour being announced this year, it was a no brainer to pick him up to represent our organization. His personality, skill level, and class all align with the ideals that ROX instills in its players and teams,” says Eliot Namgung, director of esports for ROX Gaming.
“We look forward to having Knee in our organization as he will be an influential player for us but also in the future of our organization. We are looking to start an academy where young players will be able to hone their skills in their respective game but also learn other skills in physical therapy, English fluency, and social skills where they can prepare for a professional eSport career. Knee’s massive experience as a professional eSports player will be a huge asset for our organization moving forward.”
This is great for Knee and for Tekken, showing that the future is very bright.
