Resurgence has released warrior Long "Daihuu" Wang, the organization announced Sunday.

The release followed the second qualifier for the NA regional event in Los Angeles. The organization also confirmed that they have released Mimi "Ghosty" Linch, one of their two managers.

Team manager Morgan "Artemishowl" Kirkpatrick would not confirm if the team had already found a replacement for Daihuu, but it's worth noting that Resurgence won the third Enter the Storm NA #2 qualifier with former Murloc Geniuses warrior Manny "Fury" Medina subbing in for Daihuu.

Daihuu confirmed to theScore eSports that he would not be leaving the scene, and would actively seek a new team with which he could compete.

"I'm still gonna be out there competing, looking to be the best. This is just a little bump in the road but you gotta have those in life to keep life interesting. I see all that's happened as a positive experience and I'm eager to see what 2016 has in store for me, and for HotS," he wrote.

Daihuu also posted a TwitLonger that explained his feelings on the situation.

"I'd like to say thank you to everyone on Resurgence for giving me a chance to play for them, I ended my last day with them with a f***ing bang [...] My dream ever since I was a little Wang was to be one of the best contenders of any game in Philly, hell, in the world. I plan to accomplish that, and nothing, not even this little departure is gonna stop me from reaching my goal," Daihuu wrote.
