AD carry Hyeong-gi "Police" Park and jungler Min-soo "Mightybear" Kim are listed as part of of Team Vitality's starting roster, according to the team's lolesports profile.

Police and Mightybear replace Ilyas "Shook" Hartsema and Petter "Hjarnan" Freyschuss, who joined Vitality when the organization formed its League team in December.

Acording to Vitality’s statement, Hjarnan expressed his desire to take a break from competitive gaming due to the rigours of a pro gamer’s lifestyle as well as sleeping issues. He remains under contract with Vitality.

The statement goes on to say that jungler Shook and the team have “decided to take different paths for the end of this season”

“We truthfully thank him for his implication within the group during this Spring split and wish him the best for the future,” the statement reads.

Hjarnan came to the team from H2k-Gaming and helped that team place third in the 2015 EU LCS Spring and Summer playoffs. While with Vitality, he picked up a 6.36 KDA across the 2016 Spring Split, helping the team place third in the regular season, but then fell to 5th-6th in the playoffs after an early 3-1 loss to Fnatic.

Police comes to Vitality from Apex Gaming, and previously placed for Ever in the LCK 2016 Season Spring Promotion tournament. While with Apex, he helped the team place first in the 2016 North American Challenger Series Spring Split and first in the Spring Playoffs. He also helped the team defeat Team Dragon Knights 3-0 in the final round of the promotion tournament to qualify for the Summer Split.
