Today we announce the departure of one our most popular players on our rosters; HerO.
When we first signed HerO back in October of last year, the WCS eligibility for Koreans had not been released for 2017/2018, we signed him with the intention of him playing in international tournaments such as the WCS DreamHacks and IEM of this year. However when the rules/format were released, our focused had changed to making HerO’s experience in Korea as great as possible.
Unfortunately during the first two seasons of GSL this year, HerO was unable qualify, narrowly getting knocked out in the qualifiers against Billowy then Scarlett and Cloudy in Season 2. However while we had a shaky start with GSL, HerO’s stream was doing really well and was really entertaining, we decided to focus on improving the stream by adding sleek video overlays and subscriber sounds, which was really successful for him and us. HerO also really brought his A-game when it came to the Wardi-Team League and Dust Team League, destroying a lot of formidable opponents.
In the end, we decided that we want to move our attention towards potentially having a team house in the future, which would potentially be in Seoul, which HerO wasn’t particularly interested in, especially since he lives in Busan. Overall we have enjoyed the time he has been on our time and have no doubt that he will be successful in whoever he chooses to join next.
We wish you the best of luck!
