The European LEC Summer Tournament has come to its fifth week and tonight will be their fifth week. Before the match, FNC and MSF announced the changes of the team’s personnel this week, FNC Rekkles became a substitute player, MSF team changed all the players, including veteran sOAZ, Febiven and foreign aid Gorilla from the LCK competition area.
The MSF team was formed during the transfer period after last year’s World Championship. The old FNC team joined the team singly and the LCK gold medal assisted Gorilla was introduced at the same time. It was supposed that the Rabbit team would achieve good results this year, but it was contrary to expectations. Beginning in 2017, the Rabbit team’s record is no better than that of a year. This spring, MSF team only got the eighth place, ranking the bottom of the league.
At present, the Rabbit Team ranks second to last in the summer competition, with 2 wins and 6 losses. This personnel exchange is also the team’s desire to seek change and breakthrough.
For the team’s decision, Veteran General sOAZ published a long article on Twitter, and talked to fans about his attitude and ideas about the change of personnel, and indicated that he would meet again in next year’s World Championship. But that also means that sOAZ will no longer have a chance to play this season.
The main idea of the text is as follows:
“Now that you have heard the news, I just want to share some of my own views with you. I’m sorry that our team didn’t finish the task as expected, because I believe all my teammates are very talented players and nobody should be blamed for our failure.
Whether winning or losing, I think our youth team members are in an awkward position now, so please try to support them as much as possible.
After a disappointing spring season, I tried to improve as much as I could during the off season. Hans and I both thought we could get the best training in Korea, so we paid for it ourselves, and I know that my other teammates did everything possible to improve themselves.
“When I was still in Korea, the staff told us that because of our poor performance in the spring games, we would have a list of 10 people next, so we also started to cooperate with Lider and Kirei in some games.
I believe both of them are excellent players, but the necessary prerequisite for a team of more than five to be effective is a solid foundation that requires new members to integrate into our team, rather than trying to figure out how to play with new players in frequent changes.
Before the start of the summer season, we performed better than before in the training match. I was also confident of my personal ability, but we were not able to catch up with the progress of the summer season (similar to the situation in the spring season), so the management decided to upgrade the entire youth training team to LEC.
“Thank you all and all the fans for giving me so much support during this time. I am still confident of myself and you will see me again soon.
I will miss the time I fought with you, GorillA, Maxlore, Febiven, Hans sama. I wish you all the best and I will see you in the World Cup next year.
This remark of sOAZ is really touching. He has been fighting for nearly nine years on the field, and has practiced his perseverance and initiative with practical actions. Especially when he mentioned that they went to Korea for training at their own expense, we could really feel their constant efforts and efforts. However, the fact is cruel, the golden age of electric candidates is only a few years, and there are many new players on the field. For the old, it is very difficult to stick to the field.
Although he has been rotated and sOAZ himself has indicated that there will be no more opportunities to play this year, he has not given up the career path of LOL. Despite the hard road ahead, I only hope that veteran sOAZ can create his own miracle!
