EDG mid laner Pawn took to Facebook today to announce he would be leaving his team of two years. Pawn made a name for himself playing for Samsung Blue and Samsung White, who he won the Summoner’s Cup with in 2014.
Pawn’s post on Facebook read like this:
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.”
“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.”

Fellow EDG teammate and AD carry Deft has also announced he will be leaving the team after the Demancia Cup in November. A translation to Deft’s Facebook post was provided by user KoreanExplanation on Reddit:
“Hello I am Deft and I have been playing the ADC role for EDG. I have decided after the Demacia Cup taking place in November to leave EDG. I had some tough times during my 2 years, but I feel extremely fortunate to be able to be part of EDG while I played in China.
I am extremely happy I was able to win many LPL titles and one international title with my hard working teammates. I also like to thank our coach Aaron who helped me out like a friend when I was homesick for Korea and also his promise that he will put me in a team with the best players in the world.
Coach I just want to say I was really happy to be able to play with such great teammates. Also I fought with him the most and sometimes he gave me suggestions like a older brother and sometimes gave me criticism as a teammate, Clearlove thank you for teaching me a lot.
Also Meiko lol you were really bad at first but you are extremely competitive and hard-working which reminded me of myself when I was young, so I tried to help you out as much as possible and hopefully next ADC you get can withstand your snoring. I believe you will still play well without me and will get better.
Also even though I am Korean I like to thank the Chinese fans for cheering me on. I felt like I received overwhelming amount of love, this post became longer than I expected but Thank you for reading it until the end.”
If this is the beginning of a reverse Korean exodus, the LCK just got a whole lot scarier.
