Lee "Duke" Ho-Seong (이호성) is the Top Laner for Invictus Gaming.
League of Legends
Duke (formerly known as Leopard) was originally a player on KT Rolster Bullets. He would win IEM Season VIII - World Championship with them, defeating Fnatic 3-0 in the finals. He left the team in May of 2014 and joined NaJin Black Sword. NaJin finished 2nd in ITENJOY NLB Summer 2014 during August. Duke would leave the team near the end of 2014 and played for NaJin e-mFire in the 2015 season. NaJin's Spring Split ended poorly with them finishing 6th in the regular season, barely not making the playoffs. Summer was slightly better for them as they finished in 5th place during the regular season. But in the playoffs they would lose 1-2 to KOO Tigers in the first round. In the Regional Qualifiers, NaJin was unable to qualify for Worlds after losing 0-3 to the Jin Air Green Wings.Duke would then join SK Telecom T1 in December of 2015 after he was praised as one of the bright spots on NaJin.
Season 6 went great for Duke and SKT. The team started off hot after winning IEM X World Championship with a 3-0 victory over Fnatic. They would then win the LCK Spring Playoffs, defeating their rivals ROX Tigers 3-1 in the finals. The one thing that they hadn't won yet was the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational but even there, they would defeat Counter Logic Gaming 3-0 in the finals to win the event. The LCK Summer Split didn't go that great for SKT as they finished 3rd in the playoffs after a rough 2-3 defeat to KT Rolster. At the 2016 World Championship, SKT was placed in a group with Flash Wolves, IMay and Cloud9. The team went 5-1, only dropping one game to the Flash Wolves. In the quarterfinals they would defeat Royal Never Give Up 3-1. In the semifinals they would face their biggest rivals ROX Tigers in an incredible series. Although both teams put up a huge fight, SKT was able to win the series 3-2. Facing off against former World Champions Samsung Galaxy, SKT was able to win their third world championship with a 3-2 victory. The 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup ended in disappointing fashion for SKT as they were defeated 0-2 by the ROX Tigers in the semifinals and finished in 3rd-4th place.
Duke left the team in November and in December he would move to China to join Invictus Gaming as their new top laner.
