Jin Air drops most of the roster

Jin Air's coach talked about the professional debut of Xayah and Rakan.
the Jin Air Green Wings coach talked about the professional debut of Xayah and Rakan in their League Champions Korea (LCK) summer split opener.

The Jin Air Green Wings are looking at a rebuilding as they announced they have not re-signed most of their roster.

The official announcement was made through their official Facebook on Tuesday at 9PM EST, and that all the players except Kim “SoHwan” Jun-yeong, Park “Winged” Tae-jin, Park “Teddy” Jin-seong, and Lee “Kuzan” Seong-hyeok are officially free agents as their contracts come to a close on the 30th of November.

This means that Yeo “TrAce” Chang-dong, Nah “Pilot” Woo-hyung, Choi “Chei” Sun-ho, Lee “Sweet” Eun-taek, and Jin “Blanc” Sung-min are all available to any offers from domestic or international teams.

“We thank the fans for their undying support during the 2016 season, but regrettably we notify you for the changes in players for the coming 2017 split,” they wrote. “We thank the players again for their work and hope them the best of luck in their future endeavors.”

This news comes after the report from ESPN that the new European League of Legends Challenger Series team Paris Saint-Germain has signed on Blanc in the mid lane and Pilot as the AD Carry, according to it’s sources. If true, Blanc and Pilot will be the first Koreans to ever don the PSG jerseys.

Jin Air’s 2016 summer season run was rather unsuccessful compared to the spring split, scoring seven wins and 11 losses and placing seventh, as opposed to the previous season’s fourth place finish 10 wins and eight losses. They also had a disappointing run in the KeSPA Cup, failing to go beyond the quarterfinals after losing to the ROX Tigers.
