Unicorns of Love only recently became champions at IEM Oakland, but now they've parted way with the jungler in their League of Legends team, Kang "Move" Min-su.
Move only came to the NA LCS earlier this year, being with Gravity Gaming prior, and experienced success with Unicorns of Love, grabbing the IEM Oakland championship as well as reaching the semifinals of the EU summer playoffs. What makes the move even more surprising is that UoL announced all five players were contracted into 2017.
A Facebook post revealed Move's departure, saying: "Our jungler, Min-su "Move" Kang, is now a free agent and actively looking for a new team. This difficult decision is well considered and was heavily discussed by the whole team altogether and is the result of a long thought process ongoing for months. Despite Move being a skilled and smart player able to constantly deliver a solid performance and an excellent teammate, we believe it can be possible for the team to play even better with another jungler. It is always a complicated situation to part ways with a friend for business reasons, and even if our brains are clear, our hearts are heavy."
"We wish Move the best and good luck in his League of Legends career, hoping to face him soon enough on the Rift. His successor is already selected and will be announced as soon as he is Riot-approved."
Who could this successor be? Well, one report online claims that it is Andrei "Xerxe" Dragomir, formerly of Dark Passage. After all, in a recent interview UoL manager Romain "Khagneur" Bigeard said the replacement had just turned 17, which is how old Xerxe is. Coincidence? We'll let you decide.
