Every player on the RED team other than Lee “InY0uNg” In-young, who was the sub-healer player for RED, will be released. The reasoning behind the decision is that the team wishes to focus on a single team for better results.
Afreeca RED was the weaker team of the two, and though it competed in Season 2 of OGN APEX, it lost 3-0 in every match and was relegated to the challenger league for Season 3. The team’s performance there wasn’t much better, as its chances of promotion were dashed.
Afreeca’s Blue team has enjoyed a decent amount of success since its conception, as it was runner-up in the first season of OGN APEX and a quarterfinalist in Season 2. The Blue team also finished third in the most recent season of APEX.
The players that have become free agents are Song “QuarterMain” Ji-hoon, Oh “Rio” Seung-pyo, Nam “attune” Gi-hoon, Kim “Creed” Yeon-kyung, Kim “sansam” Hyang-ki, and Kim “Navi” Hyo-jin.
