Fnatic and jungler Dayun “Spirit” Lee have parted ways, the organization announced Wednesday.

“Working with Dayun for the last year has been an absolute pleasure,” wrote team manager  Finlay “Quaye” Stewart. “Never before have I seen a player with such intense amounts of dedication and attitude towards a single goal of winning. Even after living in a foreign country surrounded by an unusual culture and losing his two closest friends on the team, Spirit gave it his all day in, day out.”

Despite flashes of brilliance, including a second place finish at the annual IEM World Championship, the Fnatic-Spirit marriage, which began December of last year, fell short of expectations with the organization missing out on both LCS Finals, a first in team history. The storied Fnatic will also miss Worlds for the first time since Season 2.

“I am very happy that I worked with Fnatic,” said Spirit in the press release. “They really helped me to improve myself as a player and as a person. I grew up a lot and I just want say thank you Fnatic. Also, Fnatic management is actually insane, I love them!”

With Fnatic citing their desire to rebuild and restructure their team, it’ll be interesting to see what domino falls next.

A native of St. Louis, Missouri, David has been an avid fan of the NFL since since the late 90’s, which led to his desire to become a local sportswriter throughout high school. Things would change when he finally gave League of Legends a chance at the end of Season 4, in which he instantly became fascinated with the professional scene watching the NA playoffs. Apart from League, he enjoys watching Counter Strike, Halo and Overwatch. He’s also written for GosuGamers, Denial eSports and Renegades.
