Team Secret has announced another roster change, coming on the heels of their failure to qualify for the Boston Major. Maurice “KheZu” Gutmann will be replacing Lee “Forev” Sang-don on the team moving forward.
We have a new yet familiar face joining our roster for the off lane position. Maurice ‘KheZu’ Gutmann will be our new off laner in the upcoming season while Lee ‘Forev’ Sang-don leaves the team. We thank Forev for his contributions to the team and wish him all the best moving forward.
The new offlaner will be travelling to Malaysia for the upcoming ROG Masters Asian tournament for his debut with the organization. ROG Masters will take place November 11-13th with 12 teams competing for $150,000.
No information has been provided regarding Lee “Forev” Sang-don’s plans.
Escape Gaming will announce their replacement forthcoming but have reported the rest of the team will remain intact.
Good luck and thanks for the great time! <3 The rest of us stay together and will be announcing our replacement sometime in the near future. https://t.co/JUB3PFCvWA
