Pawn leaves EDG

EDward Gaming’s mid laner Heo “Pawn” Won-Seok has announced his departure on social media.

Pawn posted on Facebook that he will be leaving EDG after two years of being part of the League of Legends Pro League in China.

“During my two years in EDG there were a lot of tough moments but I won a lot of tournaments and even learned a little Chinese, so I think it was time well spent,” he wrote. “If I had any regrets, it would be that we lost against the ROX Tigers without being able to play a single game. I want to thank EDG for taking care of me for two years and I hope they have more success next year.”

Pawn also revealed that his future was still up in the air, but that he wanted to compete at worlds again while taking care of his back.

“I don’t know what team I’ll be a part of next year, but I will work hard to show an even better performance for worlds. As for my back, I’ve been taking good care of it so I don’t expect it to be a problem during practice or competition.”

He lastly thanked the fans for their support.
