Bae "dade" Eojin has joined QG Reapers as a reserve player, according to a fomos report by Kenzi,

Earlier Monday night, Chinese fans spotted dade in the background of Jian "Uzi" Zihao's stream in the QG Reapers house. In response, Kenzi reached out to dade to confirm via an interview that he has indeed joined QG Reapers. According to the fomos report, dade will join QG as a reserve mid laner under Kim "Doinb" Taesang. The team has one other mid lane substitute in Kim "BoriSal" Yeonghoon.

dade left Masters3 earlier this offseason reportedly because he and the club could not agree upon a salary for 2016. Since then, very little word has risen regarding dade's status. During his time on Masters3, dade played primarily Azir, Viktor, and Leblanc, stretching his champion pool, despite the team's lack of success.

QG Reapers and Newbee previously mentioned wanting to build a roster with 1-2 extra players in each position. This may be in preparation for the Reserve League currently under discussion by Tencent and LACE, as both Royal Never Give Up and EDward Gaming have also built full reserve rosters.
