Star Horn Royal Club, the current League of Legends Secondary Pro League sister team to League of Legends Pro League team Royal Never Give Up, has announced their full roster for the 2016 LSPL split. The roster contains three players with LPL experience and two who previously played in the LSPL for other teams.

The Royal Club weibo listed the following roster:

Top: Guo "lies" Haotian
Jungle: Lei "hu1" Huiguo
Mid: Lei "corn" Wen
ADC: Wang "Wei" Huanwei
Support: Su "SouthWind" Zhilin

hu1 and corn both played on Team King during the LPL Summer split. Jungler hu1 previously played for Gamtee and is known as a Jarvan IV main. Mid laner corn played for Star Horn Royal Club during the 2014 World Championship final, but his career has been plagued by inconsistencies. Wei briefly played AD carry for Star Horn Royal Club in the 2015 LPL Spring Split before Zhu "NaMei" Jiawen joined the team. He only showed proficiency on Kalista.

Top laner lies played for ShowTime in the previous LSPL season before the team was relegated. SouthWind played support for Positive Energy's LSPL team in 2014, but later joined Legend Dragon to play during their 2015 LSPL splits. SouthWind played support for Legend Dragon in the 2015 LPL Summer promotion, but the team failed to qualify for the LPL.

Star Horn Royal Club will aim to qualify for the LPL by participating in the LSPL this coming spring.
