Thursday, Lee "Spirit" Dayoon, previously the jungler of Team WE, posted a message on weibo in Chinese, English, and Korean announcing that his contract with WE had officially ended.

My contract with Team WE is over.

Firstable, I realy want to thank all the members of Team WE. Even though I'm not that great, team supported me so well. And I hope Team WE gets better in the future. If I ever get another chance to play together, I'll try my best to help team again!

It has been a crazy year for me. There were lots of ups and downs. I learned so many things this year. Of course, there were some hard times which made me cry too. But I think I've grown to next step.

Also, I want to thank all the fans who supported me all time. Nothing is set on the stone yet. But please cheer me wherever you go. Thank you all and love you.

Spirit's message reflects his appreciation for WE and doesn't mention the conflict or the statements brought on by his interview with OGN.

During his time with WE, Spirit gained a lot of attention for his growth and individual improvement as a carry style jungler as a strong Rek'Sai and Nidalee player. Spirit was also a fan favorite in China, learning Mandarin Chinese quickly and streaming often. He is heavily credited for WE's upset over the GE Tigers at IEM Katowice this year.

The weibo post did not mention Spirit's plans for the future or where he might play next.
