Team Dignitas have dropped Lee "Chaser" Sang-hyun, who will be replaced on their starting roster with Lee "Shrimp" Byeong-hoon, the organization announced Saturday.
“It was a good experience to live in North America as a pro gamer, and I am looking for a chance to try again,” Chaser said in a press release.
Chaser joined Dignitas in Dec. 2016 alongside Kim "Ssumday" Chan-ho. While with the team, he helped them place 6th in the 2017 NA LCS Spring Regular Season and 5th-6th in the playoffs.
"We appreciate Chaser’s time with the team, and wish him well in the future,” Dignitas president Michael O'Dell said in a press release.
Dignitas are currently tied with Cloud9 for 4th in the 2017 NA LCS Summer Split standings with a 6-5 record. They are scheduled to play against Phoenix1 on Sunday.
