Yun "Road" Hangil, I MAY support and World Championship attendee, responded on Facebook Thursday to a post made on Reddit Wednesday accusing Road of verbally attacking Echo Fox mid laner Henrik "Froggen" Hansen in a solo queue match.

In the Facebook post, Road admitted to telling Froggen to "go die" repeatedly in chat when the two were matched together in a solo queue game. He claimed that rather than telling Froggen to die, he was referring to repeated ganks against Froggen in mid lane.

"The words 'go die' that I said to the pro was not telling him to go die but it was because he had so many deaths and every time he went to mid, he would get ganked and die," he said. "My ability to communicate in English is very limited, which is why I said it that way."

Road said he became angry because he was stressed and "having a tough time mentally."

"I want to apologize to my coaches, teammates and the pro player for causing this kind of issue during the tournament," he said. "I will be cautious to make sure this kind of thing doesn’t happen again."

I MAY have not made an official statement about the incident. The team currently have a record of 1-2 in the Group Stage at the World Championship and play their final games on Sunday.
