While other teams are scrambling for a rebuilding, Samsung Galaxy is right where it started for the 2016 season.
Samsung made the official announcement to resign the majority of their roster through their official Facebook on Thursday. The resigned members are Lee “Crown” Seong-jin, Kang “Ambition” Chan-yong, Park “Ruler” Jae-hyeok, Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in, and Lee “Stitch” Seung-ju. The one hold out was Kwon “Wraith” Ji-min, and is still in negotiations.
“Regarding the player Jimin Kwon(Wraith), we are still considering about his position,” they wrote. “We will anounce the precise news soon. We hope to all our fans to cheer us and love us in 2017 too. Thank you.”
This means that the team that placed second in the 2016 world championship remains mostly the same, with plenty of room for trainee or sub players as viable options for Samsung’s 2017 split.
