After winning the Mid-Season Invitational, Edward Gaming has signed Shek "AmazingJ" Waiho, who was previously the top laner for Energy Pacemaker. Energy Pacemaker was relegated in the LPL Promotion tournament in a best-of-five against Master3. Despite EP placing last in the 2015 LPL Spring split, AmazingJ's gained a lot of fan attention for his play on carry champions like Hecarim.

The notice does not mention Tong "Koro1" Yang, the current team captain and starting top laner for Edward Gaming for the past three splits. Some rumors suggested that he was holding off on re-signing with EDG for unknown reasons, but it still seemed likely he would stay on the starting roster.

Edward Gaming's announcement informed readers that they will reveal their full 2015 LPL Summer lineup later.
