After failing to qualify to the 2016 LPL Summer Split, where they ended up losing in the final promotion round 3-1 to Energy Pacemaker.All, MF Gaming was purchased by Wang Yu Dream, according to a Weibo post. Also joining the organization will be Jungler Lee “KaKAO” Byung-kwon and Mid laner Kim “Nagne” Sang-moon.
Both players are coming from LSPL’s side Wan Yoo, recently relegated from China’s 2nd tier following a 3-0 defeat against Star Horn Royal Club, sister team of the current LPL Champions Royal Never Give Up.
KaKAO was one of the players involved in the 2014 “Korean Exodus”, which saw many LCK stars deciding for a move to the Chinese region, lured by prospects of better income, and landed on Invictus Gaming. After helping the organization to reach the 2015 World Championship, the Jungler left the team last December. Nagne, meanwhile, before joining Wan Yoo only a few weeks ago, was teamless since the 2015 KESPA Cup, after leaving KT Rolster.
