Dignitas releases Chaser from League of Legends team

Team Dignitas announced Saturday the release of Lee “Chaser” Sang-hyun from its League of Legends roster.

Chaser was part of the newly formed Dignitas roster for this season, as he and Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho joined from Korea in the spring split.

Chaser is a multi-year veteran of League Champions Korea and previously played the Jin Air Green Wings and Longzhu Gaming before joining Dignitas. During his time in North America, Chaser was a middling jungler in the region, but he managed to help his team make the spring split playoffs before losing 3-0 to Phoenix1 in the quarterfinals.

Lee “Shrimp” Byung-hoon is expected to be the starting jungler for Dignitas going forward. Previously a member of Apex Gaming before he moved to Japan’s DetonatioN FocusMe, he returned to North America in May and rose in prominence with some standout performances in the summer split. Shrimp came on strong and took the starting job from Chaser early in the summer split. Chaser hadn’t played in a match since Week 2.
