Azubu Blaze (Blaze) announced that Han-Gyu “Reapered” Bok would be leaving the team. Reapered was the Top lane player for Blaze, helping lead the team as the champions of Azubu The Champions Spring 2011. The team stated that it was a mutual agreement due to “issues with the team being on the same page.” Blaze also added that Reapered has planned to transfer to a new team. Further details have not been announced at this time. With the IPL5 qualifiers beginning today, Dong-Hyun “EDG Avalon Player” Shin will be the substitute Top player for Blaze.
It is not clear if EDG Avalon Player will be the permanent addition to the team. Tryouts are already in progress for the Top lane position. Dae-Young Son, the recently recruited coach for Azubu’s League of Legends teams, announced that any confident player is welcome. He also stated that although Blaze was invited to the Major League Gaming Fall Championships in Dallas, it is unknown who will be joining Azubu Blaze for the tournament.
Reapered will be joining Team X for the winter season of The Champions. Team X was not present for their offline qualifiers for The Champions, disqualifying them for the Winter Season. Reapered stated on his Facebook page that he will return next year.
