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.”
