PSG Talon has officially parted ways with its entire League of Legends squad, according to a statement announced on November 20th. Top laner Su “Hanabi” Chia-Hsiang, jungle main Jeong “Burry” Seung-hwan, mid laner carry Kim “Gori” Tae-woo, bot laner Wong “Unified” Chun Kit and support main Ling “Kaiwing” Kai Wing have all been released from the organization, thus PSG will need to find an entire brand new roster going into the 2023 season.
PSG Talon parts ways with their entire roster
PSG Talon’s 2022 season was not one that anybody expected. While the squad looked incredibly dominant throughout the first split of the year, winning the spring split and punching their ticket for the Mid Season Invitational, PSG Talon ultimately failed to make it to Worlds 2022 in North America, as Beyond Gaming completed an incredible upset in the PCS Summer Playoffs. After entering the competitive scene in 2020, this is the first time in 3 years that PSG Talon has missed a place in the League of Legends World Championship.
PSG Talon chief executive officer and co-founder Sean Zhang also publicly shared some words with the players in a video published on PSG Talon’s social media page.
“Massive thank you to our existing squad. All those boys have put in an amazing amount of work into 2022. Many of them, partially Hanabi, Unified, and Kaiwing, who have been with us from the very early days at Talon, even before we were PSG Talon” “We want to wish those boys a massive thank you for all their effort, dedication, and work they have put in. They’ve brought amazing memories to our squad, not only in the PCS but on the international stage at MSI and Worlds”
As of the moment, the only players remaining on the active roster are top laner Huang “Ahzi” Shang-Jhih and mid-laner Ng “Pretender” Cheuk Lun Jason, who previously were substitutes for the team. Their contracts are set to expire by the end of 2023 and 2024, with Pretender currently out on loan at Frank Esports.
It is not clear which route will PSG Talon take in order to fill out the missing spots or even if Ahzi and Pretender will be in place for the active lineup. Currently, most fans are expecting PSG Talon to make a move for LCK free agents.
With the free agency time frame starting November 21st, the team can now look to rebuild its roster from the ground up and return to the top of the PCS in 2023. CEO Sean Zhang told fans to keep a close eye on PSG Talon’s social media as they will provide updates on the roster over the next couple of days.
