NRG Esports will start Cristian "Cris" Rosales and Lee "Shrimp" Byeong Hoon for their first game in the North American LCS, Riot announced Thursday via their fantasy LCS page.
Shrimp and Cris are signed to NRG as substitutes and will be replacing Jung "Impact" Eon-yong and Galen "Moon" Holgate for NRG's game against Team Dignitas. According to Riot's announcement, Moon and Impact are probable to start in NRG's game against Renegades the next day.
As per rule 3.2, NRG must retain three-fifths of Team Coast's qualifying roster for their first game. Cris, Shrimp, and Kevin "KonKwon" Kwon all played for Coast previously.
NRG purchased Team Coast's spot in the North American LCS in November. Impact previously played for Team Impulse and SKT Telecom T1, while Moon comes to the team from Team Imagine.
