Immortals has announced that support player Kang “Dodo8” Jun-hyeokhas will be retiring from competitive play to fulfill a new role as team manager.

Dodo spoke out on his decision:

Hello everyone. Today I will be retiring as a competitive player, and will become the in house team manager for Immortals. I played competitive MOBA for almost 9 years now, from playing DOTA in DXD and IHCS, playing Heroes of Newerth with Chu in EG and being the best team in the world, and playing League of Legends professionally in the LCS with T8. The reason for my retirement is pretty simple, I realized I am not good enough to make it to worlds. The one ultimate goal when I decided to play League of Legends competitively was to play in the world championship. But after playing competitively for 2 years, I realized the chances of making it to worlds is very slim and I was not improving fast enough to make it possible. I am still confident in myself that I can perform at an LCS level, but when I can’t picture myself being in worlds, it is too hard to continue. I am also turning 27 soon and I feel old and burnt out after playing games competitively for so long.

 

With Steven “Calitrlolz“ leaving the team in early October, Immortals will search for players in the Top and Support positions for the upcoming 2016 NA LCS Spring Split.

After Renegades marksman Ainslie “Maplestreet” Wyllie announced on twitter that he would be stepping down from the team, the organization announced that they would be holding open marksman tryouts to players who have reached Master tier or higher in their region’s Solo Queue ladder.

 

Maplestreet also tweeted that he intends to continue playing competitively:

 

 

This marks the third marksman shift in the team since it’s inception as Misfits in March. The others being Ritchie “Intense” and Mohammad “Jebus” Tokhi, who Maplestreet was filling in for due to Visa issues, eventually resulting in a delayed arrival. Renegades opted to use Maplestreet in the NACS Summer Finals where they edged out Team Coast 3-2, granting them a spot in the 2016 LCS Spring Split with an MVP performance from the Maplestreet.

Renegades released a statement on his departure and their search for a replacement:

 

We are forever thankful for the effort Maple put forth this summer as we made our way from a Challenger team to members of the League Championship Series (LCS). As an organization we wish him the best of luck as he pursues another opportunity to continue his career.

With anticipation of Maple’s departure, we have already started our search for our next marksman. And with our inaugural LCS season on the horizon, we intend to leave no stone unturned as we begin our worldwide search for an individual possessing the mechanical ability and intangibles we believe will help us win.

 

NoL will continue to provide updates to the Renegades roster as information becomes available.
