“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.
