Bae "dade" Eojin is set to play for the QG Reapers, according to his post on Facebook. In his post, dade stated he will play in the LPL playoffs, but that he doesn't have any specific plans to play for the team afterward. This statement was corroborated by sources close to the QG Reapers.

dade joined the QG Reapers as a reserve player earlier this year, but left the team before the end of the season. According to QG's manager Li "Link0" Linke, dade was released as, early on in the split, the team atmosphere was good, and he had little chance to play for the starting lineup . Following dade's departure, internal conflict plagued QG, and starting mid laner, Kim "Doinb" Taesang has since not appeared as the team's primary mid laner.

Known by many as one of the greatest mid laners to ever play League of Legends, dade gained most of his renown playing for Samsung Ozone and Samsung Blue in 2013 and 2014. dade joined Chinese team Masters3 in 2015, but M3 failed to place above eighth in either spring or summer splits.

dade's Facebook post provides no concrete information regarding any plans after the upcoming LPL playoffs.
