The long, strange saga of of League of Legends star Konstantinos “FORG1VEN” Tzortziou-Napoleon continues, with the Greek AD carry announcing via Facebook that he intends to not play in the 2016 EU LCS summer split.
As reported by ESPN, it had been rumored that FORG1VEN would be leaving H2K after the spring split, but it was unclear if he would be going to a different team or simply taking a break.
It is equally unclear how much his mandatory military service as a Greek citizen affected his decision, especially after he was granted a deferment earlier in the year. He does say that he plans to return to the LCS in the spring of 2017.
Taylor Cocke would love to see FORG1VEN get a proper shot on the international stage, so he hopes the ADC comes back soon. You can follow Taylor on Twitter @taylorcocke.
