Dignitas allow Huni to "explore other opportunities" ahead of LCS Summer Split

LCS franchise Dignitas might part ways with top laner Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon before the 2020 Summer Split. The org tweeted Saturday, that they’ve allowed Huni to “explore other opportunities”, which often indicates some sort of roster change.

The tweet comes in stark contrast to the relationship Dignitas built with Huni during the 2019 off-season. As they prepared for their LCS return, Dignitas extended Huni’s contract with the club till 2021 while signing him to a $2.3M deal over two years, making him one of the best paid LCS players.

This reportedly left Dignitas without much capital to build the rest of the team, but the org nevertheless signed experienced names to the franchise, including mid laner Henrik “Froggen” Hansen and support Zaqueri “aphromoo” Black. At the same time, Dignitas lost Philippe “Vulcan” Laflamme to Cloud9, where he became one of the key players to the team’s 17-1 run in the Spring Split.

The roster did not work well enough and Dignitas ultimately lost a tiebreaker match to Golden Guardians and were left out of playoffs contention. Huni himself had a rough season, ranking the lowest of all top laners in terms of KDA, XPD@10, and CSD@10.

As one of the most seasoned players in the LCS, however, Huni will likely find a new team quickly.
