Dignitas Allows Huni to Explore Opportunities Ahead of LCS Summer Split
By Cailey Ives
Dignitas has allowed Top-Laner Heo "Huni" Seung-hoon to explore other opportunities ahead of the LCS summer split. The news isn't much of a shock after the team failed to qualify for the 2020 League of Legends spring playoffs.
Huni has been a popular player since his breakout year with Fnatic in 2015. Since then, he has played for five other teams including Immortals, T1, Echo Fox, and Clutch Gaming where he helped Clutch Gaming claim North America's third seed to the world championship last year.
Dignitas finished the spring split in seventh place with an 8-10 record, narrowly missing the spring playoffs after they were eliminated in a tiebreaker match against sixth-seeded Golden Guardians.
Following his release from Dignitas, the top laner tweeted out that he was open to new opportunities.
Teams which struggled in the spring split may be interested in Huni's talent, but the $2.3 million guaranteed contract may scare away certain brands. The 2020 season has been a strange one with the coronavirus and teams failing to meet expectations including Team Liquid who didn't qualify for the spring split playoffs.
