Heading into the Spring Split, 100 Thieves were greatly hyped after a series of big signings to strengthen their LoL lineup following their first official season in the LCS.

Huhi, who joined from CounterLogic Gaming, was joined by Bae ‘Bang’ Jun-sik, who switched SK Telecom T1 and the LCK for a move to America as one of the stars of a new-look 100 Thieves.

Why has huhi been released by 100 Thieves?

While many thought 100 Thieves would be in the hunt for the LCS Spring Split title, the organization recorded their worst split in their short history, finishing rock bottom with a final record of 4-14, a performance that coach Neil ‘pr0lly’ Hammad has taken full responsibility for.

For huhi, the split was difficult on a personal level, finishing with some of the worst statistics of any mid laner in the LCS in kills, assists, and overall KDA.

Huhi’s spell in the LCS with 100 Thieves came to an end six games before the end of the split, when he was moved to the organization’s academy team, with Max ‘Soligo’ Soong taking his spot on the main roster.

What did huhi and 100 Thieves say about the release?

100 Thieves officially broke the news that huhi was leaving the organization on Tuesday, April 2. In a tweet posted by the team, 100 Thieves praised the mid laner for his “work ethic, positivity, and professionalism”, saying: "He’ll be a valuable addition to any team he joins. We wish him the best.”

Huhi also thanked the organization for his spell there, saying that even though the split had “not gone the way we thought it would,” he was grateful for the opportunity.


What’s next for huhi and 100 Thieves?

100 Thieves will look to restructure their lineup after a disappointing split, with CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot' Haag and pr0lly confirming that “there will be roster changes heading into the Summer Split”, with huhi possibly the first of a number of moves we could see.

For huhi, the off-season will be spent searching for a new home in North American League of Legends. In a tweet posted by the mid laner, he stated that he was open to any opportunities, whether they were in LCS or Academy, and also made it clear he would be open to playing jungle or support.

Whether an LCS team is prepared to take a chance on huhi following his miserable Spring Split remains to be seen.
