After today’s win, the Spark improved to 6-7 on the year. While the reason for the move is currently unknown, the lukewarm season so far could be the reason for the change. This, in turn, could lead to some more personnel changes for the squad as they try to cope with the league’s meta.
Hangzhou players like iDK have already responded to the move. Overall, it seems like yeah was a good influence during his tenure with the team.
yeah joined Hangzhou in late 2019, going into the 2020 season. He was brought in to replace Seungjun “Sup7eme” Han after Sup7eme departed to the Washington Justice.
A replacement has not been announced at this time, but TGH will report on any further changes as details roll in.
