Flaresz, InnoX leave Enemy, declare free agency
Top laner Cuong "Flaresz" Ta and mid laner Tyson "InnoX" Kapler both announced their free agency today, adding that they’ll be searching for new outfits in the professional League scene in the coming months.
That makes the future even more uncertain for Enemy, raising questions on whether they will be capable of fielding three-fifths of its active roster for the next Challenger Series split. But it won’t need to make its mind till February, when the series heats back up.
The news comes as no surprise after the team took a ninth place finish in the North American LCS, only managing to finish higher than the ill-fated Team Dragon Knights. With a 4-14 record, the team looked hapless for much of the season, a trend that continued in their relegation series Team Coast, who swept Enemy 3-0.
But before its LCS woes, Enemy dominated the Challenger Series, only losing two games to Team Dragon Knights and Team Fusion over the course of the season. And if this run was indication of its Spring future, it might be that the team returns to the LCS next summer. For now, however, its focus must remain on rebuilding a team that is now missing two key solo lane players.
