Jeong "Raison" Soo-bin and Kim "Olleh" Joon-sung have left Hong Kong Esports, according to a Facebook post translated by freelance reporter Xander "Goomiho" Torres.

According to Torres' tweet, Raison chose not to renew his contract, while Olleh's contract was terminated by HKE.

Raison has played AD carry for the team since May 2015. He was suspended from the LMS in July 2015 for Elo boosting, and returned to the active roster in April 2016 once his suspension ended.

Olleh joined the team and moved to Hong Kong in January 2015, after leaving paiN Gaming in Brazil. The support player finished the summer split with a 3.10 KDA, the lowest regular-season KDA he has had while with HKE.

HKE finished both the 2016 LMS Summer Split and Summer Playoffs in fourth place. The team ended the regular season with a 5-5-4 record, and were knocked out of the playoffs after a 3-0 loss to ahq e-Sports club in the first round.
