Sist helg kunne SK Telecom T1 sikre seieren i League of Legends' Mid-Season Invitational, og medfinalist G2 Esports kan nå fortelle at de har skaffet to erstatter til sommerens EU LCS. Dette gjør de for å gi Ki "Expect" Dae-han og Kim "Trick" Gang-yun en aldri så liten pause, sier de.
"This year we took the preparation for the international tournament very seriously and players invested their maximum. At G2 Esports our players' well-being is our number one priority. Therefore, our starting top laner Expect and jungler Trick were granted the opportunity to go home to Korea after MSI. We believe that the chance to go home, spend time with their families and recharge is essential for our players' ability to perform on the highest level throughout the year."
Trick ønsker pausen velkommen, og har reist hjem til Sør-Korea for sommeren:
"I am very happy to be home in Korea with my family. Thank you all for cheering for me and my team at MSI, I will be back in EU very soon with full energy for the Summer Split."
Dette betyr at reservene Rosendo 'Send0o' Fuentes og Jean-Victor 'loulex' Burgevin skal erstatte spillerne "inntil Expect og Trick er tilbake i Berlin."
