Sung “Flawless” Yeongjun (also known simply as “Flaw”) has joined Chinese team I May, according to their weibo. They have added two other new players, jungler Tu “Ben4” Xincheng and support Hu “Maestro” Jianxin. Mid laner Kang “BaeMe” Yanghyun has also left the team, along with Fan “Avoidless” Junwei. BaeMe will play for LSPL team IN Gaming.
Flawless played for SBENU Korea in 2016. After an offseason of excitement for the promising rookie jungler, SBENU had a poor Spring in LCK, finishing ninth of ten teams. They played Promotion against ESC Ever and lost 3-0 to the Challenger team, losing their spot in LCK.
I May started the year as LSPL team EDward Esports, but successfully qualified for the LPL at the end of the split. Avoidless and BaeMe were instrumental in their 2016 LPL Summer qualification for the World Championship, though BaeMe had increasingly less play time than the team’s other mid laner, Kang “Athena” Hawoon. Following the announcement that Avoidless will join Thunder Bear Gaming, I May confirmed BaeMe will also leave the team for IN Gaming, an LSPL to which ex-LMQ AD carry Li “Vasilii” Weijun is currently signed.
Ben4 and Maestro are both rookie players who have not previously played for a team.
