Free Agent
Enters free agency
November 14, 2018
Mata is a free agent, KT Rolster confirmed on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Mata played with KT Rolster for two years, beginning his tenure with the organization in December of 2016. Mata's 2018 season was particularly impressive as KT Rolster took third place in the LCK Spring Playoffs before earning a second place finish at Rift Rivals. To top it off, Mata and company claimed a first place finish both in the regular season and Summer Split playoffs, but the roster faltered at the 2018 World Championships, losing to eventual world champions, Invictus Gaming, in the quarterfinals, 3-2.
Joins Hanwha Life Esports
November 14, 2018
Bono will team with Hanwha Life Esports for the 2019 Spring Split, Ruri Web confirmed on Monday.
ANALYSIS
Bono was a part of the bbq Olivers roster that failed to re-qualify for the LCK Summer Split, losing three contests in the promotion round. It's not entirely certain whether Bono will start over SeongHwan, the team's starting jungler last season, but more information will likely be availabe after the latter's contract runs out November 19.
Teaming with Hanwha Life Esports
November 14, 2018
Tempt will join Hanwha Life Esports, Ruri Web reported on Monday.
ANALYSIS
Tempt played with bbq Olivers this past season, but the organization failed to advance out of the LCK Promotion round and as a result, will join a different team this season. It's unclear whether he'll start automatically for Hanwha Life Esports, but more information should surface as we creep closer to the start of the 2019 Spring Split.
Enters free agency
November 14, 2018
Ghost will enter free agency, the player reported on Monday.
ANALYSIS
The bottom laner played in four games throughout the LCK 2019 Spring Promotion as bbq Olivers won just one of the three contests. He'll enter free agency with few options to join a well known organization.
Free Agent
No longer listed under UoL
November 8, 2018
Neon is no longer listed as a support for Unicorns of Love.
ANALYSIS
Multiple supports have been released in the EU LCS including Neon, but at least the UoL player finished with a higher kill percentage (67.5) than most of his free agent colleagues at the position. A 16/19/32 KDA across eight games probably allowed him to post a "better" kill percentage, but across a full season it remains to be seen whether Neon could be a positive asset at the position.
Free Agent
Not listed on Giants Gaming
November 8, 2018
Ruin is not listed on the Giants Gaming roster heading into the 2019 Spring Split.
ANALYSIS
Ruin posted a 31/65/65 KDA through 18 games as the top laner for Giants Gaming, but a 57.5 kill percentage reflects just how poorly the team played throughout the 2018 Summer Split. He'll have an opportunity to join a new team heading into the next Spring Split.
Free Agent
Not listed on Giants Gaming
November 8, 2018
SirNukesAlot is not listed on Giants Gaming's roster.
ANALYSIS
It shouldn't come as much of a surprise given Giants Gaming was one of many European teams to struggle, and as a result at least three members are moving on from the team, including SirNukesAlot. The support registered a 5/62/98 KDA across 18 games and posted a 61.7 percent kill percentage, both figures that would situate SirNukesAlot near the bottom of the position rankings.
Free Agent
Not listed on H2k
November 8, 2018
Smittyj is not listed on H2k's roster following the 2018 Summer Split.
ANALYSIS
Smittyj's season ended with a 28/66/49 KDA across 18 games, but the team struggled to even sniff a win throughout the 2018 Summer Split. The team's lack of success suggests Smittyj was never likely to return to H2k, but it'll be interesting to watch whether he can catch on with any European team, particularly with the changes expected to come to the EU LCS model.
Free Agent
No longer on H2k
November 8, 2018
PromisQ is no longer listed on the H2k roster.
ANALYSIS
PromisQ finished the 2018 Summer Split with a 7/61/77 KDA across 18 games, posting a paltry 61 percent kill participation percentage which would place him among the bottom third among the EU LCS. With changes likely coming to the entire region, it'll be interesting to see whether PromisQ can slot in on another lineup.
Free agent heading into 2019 Spring Split
November 8, 2018
Mickey announced he is a free agent and looking for a new roster heading into the 2019 Spring Split.
ANALYSIS
Mickey and the rest of Golden Guardians struggled throughout the 2018 Summer Split, as the middle laner finished with a 47/35/81 KDA, but that also included two starts at ADC. The former Afreeca Freecs and ROX Tigers player could make a return to Korea depending on an attractive offer, but he'll more than likely stick in the North American region with a financial boon coming thanks to franchising.
Free Agent
Not listed on TSM Academy
November 8, 2018
MikeYeung is not listed on Team SoloMid's Academy team.
ANALYSIS
MikeYeung joined TSM's Academy in the middle of June as Grig moved up to the main roster. The former Rookie of the Year hasn't followed the same type of success during his award-winning year with Phoenix1, but it'll be interesting to see whether he can parlay some name recognition into a starting spot next season.
Free Agent
Leaves Vici after three years
November 2, 2018
Easyhoon will not return to Vici Gaming in 2019 after his contract with the team expired.
ANALYSIS
Easyhoon made a name for himself as Faker's backup on SKT, but never translated the hype into much success after moving to China with Vici. The mid-laner struggled in China and Vici will move in a new direction in the mid lane as a result.
Stuck on tank duty
October 17, 2018
Ssumday ended Wednesday's loss to iG with a 1/4/5 KDA as Sion.
ANALYSIS
Ssumday was put on tank duty yet again during Wednesday's loss to iG. He was involved in 50 percent of 100 Thieves' kills, ending with the lowest kill participation on the team. His one kill was tied for the team low, while his five assists were tied for the second-lowest total in the loss.
Over half his team's kills
October 17, 2018
Anda finished Wednesday's loss to iG with a 7/4/3 KDA as Nocturne.
ANALYSIS
Anda tried to carry 100 Thieves to an upset win over iG, but fell short despite a solid effort. He was involved in 10 of 12 kills, leading 100 Thieves in kill participation. His three assists were the team low, but he had seven assists to finish with over half of his team's kills in the losing effort.
Struggles yet again
October 17, 2018
Ryu ended Wednesday's loss to iG with a 2/5/5 KDA as Lissandra.
ANALYSIS
Ryu struggled in yet another game during the group stages, hurting 100 Thieves' chances against iG. He was involved in seven of 12 kills, tying for the second-lowest kill participation in the loss. His two kills were the second highest on the team, while his five assists tied him with Ssumday for the third-highest total. Ryu also tied for the team-high death total, giving away five of his team's 21 deaths.
