ROX tigers mid laner Lindarang left Thursday's League Champions Korea (LCK) match because of an apparent illness.

The players of the ROX Tigers have all left goodbye messagges on social media on Friday, following their expired contracts with the team.

Top laner Song “Smeb” Kyung-ho, AD Carry Kim “PraY” Jong-in, and support Kang “GorillA” Beom-hyun have left their messages on Facebook, while jungler Han “Peanut” Wang-ho and mid laner Lee “Kuro” Seo-haeng have said their good byes on their twitter accounts.

The following is a collection of the messages in English.

“Hello, this is smeb Song Kyung-ho, and I used to play as ROX Tigers’ top laner,” he wrote. “My contract has come to an end on the 25th of November. I will be uploading a thank you message to all of ROX’s fans in the near future.”

“Hello, this is PraY Kim Jong in. I have decided to leave (ROX) following the KeSPA Cup,” he wrote. “I have a lot I want to say, but I don’t think I have the writing skill to express all of it. Al lot has happened in the past two years, but I want to thank my teammates who have tirelessly worked with me. I thank the fans who cheered for us whether we did well or not. I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future, but please cheer for me in the end! Thank you.”

“Hello, this is GorillA Kang Beom-hyun, and I used to be the team captain and support of the ROX Tigers,” he wrote. “I have left the Tigers today. I thank all the fans who have been cheering for us.”

“Hello, this is Penaut Han Wang-ho. Originally my contract doesn’t come up until the 30th of November,” he wrote. “I want to be with my teammates right now the most, but as that is becoming unrealistic, I was able to get permission to talk with other teams after talking with my organization. I don’t know if I will continue to play with my current team, but I will work hard to show good performances as a pro gamer.”

“I want to thank my teammates, coach, head coach, and managing staff, and I think I am where I am right now thanks to the fans,” Kuro wrote. “I don’t know where I will be heading to in the future, but I will continue to be a pro and I hope fans still cheer for me. I love you all.”
