After being linked with a whole host of American teams in recent weeks, LCK bot lane legend Jin ‘PraY’ Jong-In has cast some major doubt over his future in esports.

The Korean – who has won League of Legends Champions Korea with three different teams – revealed that he has turned down several offers to compete in the 2019 season during an emotional stream on Afreeca TV, with his fans now uncertain about what his next step might be. 

“The offers [that I’ve received from teams] have been too good, but I turned them all down,” he said. “Maybe I had already closed my heart, for some time by now.”

This was followed by several mentions of the word “retirement,” according to Korizon – a Korean esports website. The 24-year old reportedly went on to discuss the idea of retiring when the fans “were still clapping” and his potential regret of leaving now when they are not.

Despite the fans in the chat pleading for him to stick around and speak to more teams again, PraY responded with: “That’s the end. I’m going now. Maybe I’ll turn the stream on again soon,” before ending the stream.

What makes his words more shocking, is that they came just over a week after PraY opened himself up to offers publicly. He took to Twitter to seemingly promote his availability on November 20, as you can see in the tweet below.

While his fans may be confused or saddened by the situation, it does not seem like a concrete announcement at this stage. There is still hope that he could return in the future, even if it’s not alongside GorillA.
