Leaves Echo Fox for OpTic Gaming
November 21, 2017
ESPN announced Tuesday morning that Akaadian has taken his leave of Echo Fox and is now the first confirmed member to join OpTic Gaming.
ANALYSIS
Echo Fox was dealt a mighty blow Tuesday, as their first roster transaction of the offseason was announced, and it isn't a good one. Akaadian was one of the biggest surprises of the 2017 season, and he quickly rose to prominence as one of the region's top domestic junglers over the course of the Spring of 2017. His loss to OpTic Gaming will be keenly felt by all fans of Echo Fox, who found in him the secondary carry threat they'd been looking for since the team's inception, and they'll be hard-pressed to find a domestic jungler with anywhere near the same level of skill. The Green Wall, on the other hand, is sure to celebrate their first acquisition, as Akaadian is one of the foremost domestic talents in the scene, and his acquisition may open the door to some high profile imports in the team's carry roles, which may give OpTic the leg up it needs to be a real competitor come the start of the 2018 season.
Released by Jin Air
November 21, 2017
SnowFlower has been released by Jin Air Green Wings, the team announced Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
SnowFlower wasn't fortunate enough to stick around with the team going into 2018 after a rough end to the Summer Split. They finished with a 7-11 record, which was good for just 7th place in the LCK. While his contract was terminated, he will be sticking around with the team until the end of the KeSPA Cup. After that, he will be free to move onto greener pastures.
Leaves SK Telecom T1
November 21, 2017
SK Telecom T1 announced via Facebook Tuesday that Peanut's contract has not been renewed for the 2018 season.
ANALYSIS
Peanut's arrival on SKT T1 was one of the most hyped roster movements in the history of League of Legends, and would have been the news of the 2017 preseason were it not for the formation of KT Rolster's ill-fated super team. Unfortunately, what was supposed to be a match made in heaven soon proved to be anything but, as Peanut struggled to adapt to his new team. The free-spirited aggression that made Peanut such a hit on the ROX Tigers during 2016 proved a poor match for SKT T1's more controlled style, and the team started splitting their games between both Peanut and Blank, their substitute jungler. Over time, Peanut transformed into more of a decoy than a serious threat, as SKT T1 took to deploying him at the beginning of a series to scout out the enemy jungle routes before swapping him out for the far more consistent Blank. Thus it comes as little surprise that SKT T1 has decided that their experiment with Peanut has come to an end, as his performance over the 2017 season simply hasn't justified the resources that were poured into him. Where he will go from here is, as of now, unknown, but considering his massive fan-base there's no question he'll land on his feet somewhere, even if that place isn't the LCK.
Sticks around with Jin Air for 2018
November 21, 2017
UmTi has been re-signed with Jin Air Green Wings for the upcoming season, the team announced Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
UmTi has solidified himself as the jungler that Jin Air will continue to stick with going into 2018. While he was re-signed, along with SoHwan and Teddy, others on the team weren't so fortunate. Raise, Kuzan, SnowFlower, and ikssu all had their contracts terminated going into the next season. The team has some ground to make up, as they finished with just a 7-11 record that was good for 7th place in the LCK.
Re-signs with Jin Air
November 21, 2017
Teddy will be staying with the Jin Air Green Wings into the 2018 season, the team announced Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
As the lone ADC on the roster, it's not much of a surprise that Teddy was re-signed by the team. He joined SoHwan and UmTi as the members sticking around, while Kuzan, ikssu, SnowFlower, and Raise were released. The team finished in 7th place during the Summer Split and will certainly be looking to climb back up in the ranks in the 2018 year.
Re-signed by Jin Air
November 21, 2017
SoHwan will be sticking with Jin Air Green Wings going into the 2018 season, the team announced Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
While Jin Air retooled its roster a bit with the release of Kuzan, Raise, SnowFlower, and ikssuu, SoHwan was safe from the roster cutdowns. While he didn't see much playtime in the 2017 season, the team has doubled down on the player going into the new season. With the team finishing in 7th place in the Summer Split, any improvement will likely be seen as a success for the new roster.
Released by Jin Air
November 21, 2017
Raise's contract with Jin Air Green Wings has been terminated, the team announced Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Raise was one of three Jin Air members who were let go by the team on Tuesday. He was joined by iksuu, SnowFlower, and Kuzan on the termination list, while SoHwan, UmTi, and Teddy were re-signed by the team. Raise didn't play much at all in the 2017 season, and will likely be no more than a backup going forward.
No longer with Jin Air
November 21, 2017

ANALYSIS

Kuzan, along with ikssu, SnowFlower, and Raise, was released from the team. Kuzan finished the season with 86/76/192 KDA, and 3.66 average ratio. There's no word just yet on what his next move will be.
