The 2016 KeSPA Cup rosters were released Tuesday evening, and a number of teams made changes to their roster ahead of the national tournament.

CJ Entus fielded some of the more notable roster moves, as talented up-and-coming mid laner Gwak "Bdd" Bo-seong was not listed on the team's roster. Junglers Park "Bubbling" Jun-hyeong and Kang "Haru" Min-seung, top laner Park "Untara" Ui-jin, and AD carry Ha "Kkramer" Jong-hun were also absent from CJ's roster. With that said, CJ Entus did add jungler Lee "Reach" Joo-won, former SBENU Korea top laner Seo "Soul" Hyeon-seok, AD carry Park "Momo" Min-shik and support player Park "SungHo" Sung-ho.

Meanwhile, SK Telecom T1 listed top laner Kim "Profit" Jun-hyung, formerly of the LSPL's Young Glory, and support Kang "TaeHoon" Tae-hoon on their KeSPA Cup roster, presumably as substitutes for Lee "Duke" Ho-seong and Lee "Wolf" Jae-wan.

The Jin Air Green Wings picked up AD carry Park "Teddy" Jin-song as a likely substitute for AD carry Na "Pilot" Woo-hyung.

Shortly after the KeSPA Cup rosters were released, Afreeca Freecs top laner Jeon "ikssu" Ik-soo and jungler Nam "LirA" Tae-yoo announced their departure from the team.

The KeSPA Cup runs from Nov. 9-19.
