Maurice “Amazing” Stückenschneider announced Monday he is no longer a part of Mysterious Monkeys and will seek opportunities as a player or coach.

Amazing joined Mysterious Monkeys in June from Fnatic and was added to the team as the jungler one day after Leon “Lamabear” Krüger announced his departure from the team. Mysterious Monkeys struggled in the EU LCS, finishing in last place of Group B with a record of 2-11. The team was then relegated from the EU LCS after losing to Schalke 04 3-2 and Ninjas in Pyjamas 3-0 during the spring promotional tournament.

Amazing is most well-known for his time with Team SoloMid, winning the North American League of Legends Championship Series summer split in 2014 and qualifying for the League of Legends World Championship. He joined Origen in 2015 and qualified for worlds again. He joined Fnatic after playing with Origen through 2016.

With the departure of Amazing, the remaining roster for Mysterious Monkeys consists of Mateusz “Kikis” Szkudlarek,  Sofyan “CozQ” Rechchad, Florent “Yuuki60” Soler, Han “Dreams” Min-kook, Christian “Phones” Sieg, Lukas “Inition” Otter, and Sander “Kitty” Everink.
