LGD Gaming is moving on from mid laner Su “xiye” Han-Wei, according to Fomos reporter Kenzi.

The 23-year-old mid laner joined the League of Legends team for the Summer Split and helped them secure a spot at Worlds 2020. His mechanical prowess should easily land him a starting spot on another top-tier team that might be looking to shake up its roster. One of the rumored teams that might acquire him is JD Gaming, but this is unconfirmed at this time.

Xiye began his professional career in 2013 playing for Team WE Academy. After his display of skill in the minor league, he was promoted to Team WE’s main roster in 2015. He was the focal point of the team for four years, playing alongside various rosters.

Team WE’s most dominant year was 2017 when they managed to secure their first LPL title and had a great showing on the international stage. They were one of the favored teams to win Worlds, but Samsung Galaxy put a stop to their dominance in their quarterfinals. Since then, Team WE has gone into a slump and xiye left the team at the end of the 2019 season.

After a brief Spring Split stay with Dominus Esports, xiye was acquired by LGD and flourished during the Summer Split. His recent performance makes him one of the most valuable mid lane free agents this offseason.
