After being absent from the team in both LCS and Academy play since Rift Rivals, it appears Kim “FeniX” Jae-hun has been dropped from the Echo Fox roster, with Tanner “Damonte” Damonte as the new full time starting mid laner for the team. It is unclear whether FeniX will be moving forward with a new team.
I’m currently a free agent. Thanks to @echofoxgg for providing me a great opportunity to play on great organization.
I’m still fully motivated and confident with my plays.

With Echo Fox faltering somewhat in recent weeks, they will push to find a strong identity as we move into the second half of the season. With one fewer option for a sub, their identity comes more clear. Eyes on Damonte to see how he will perform moving forward, and eyes on FeniX to see how his journey will continue.
UPDATE: FeniX discloses that he is unable to find a new team in time to continue playing in the Summer Split. Going forward, he will be looking to join a team in as staff.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to join any team due to short notice and lack of time, so I won’t be playing on stage for this split. However, I am still looking forward to be part of teams where I can help in scrims, reviews, etc. b/c I don’t wanna waste any time during off-season
