We start Friday with a bang, because of intriguing information from the Far East, specifically from the Invictus Gaming camp. It turns out that the next player said goodbye to the team, we are talking about Yu “JackeyLove” Wenie-Bo, who became a free agent and thus began to look for a new team for the upcoming 2020 season.

The 19-year-old is the second player who has recently split up with the championship team. Earlier, at the beginning of November, the ranks of IG left the two-time world champion, Lee “Duke” Ho-seong, who decided not to renew the contract with the organization. JackeyLove began cooperation with the Chinese team in 2016, winning, among others NEST 2016 and 2017. Then this player moved in 2017 to Young Glory, in which he remained for less than two months, to return to IG composition again in November 2017.

From that moment, the career of the Chinese Marksman began to gain momentum. JackeyLove and the company in the spring stage of LPL came in fourth place, but they made a real surprise during the summer games, where they came in second and advanced to Worlds 2018. Before the start of the championship, 19-year-old Markman contributed to the triumph of the Chinese league during the Rift Rivals 2018. However, during the championship, Invictus Gaming was unstoppable and it was this team that won the first Summoner Cup for their region.

Problems began in 2019. It is true that IG took second place in the LPL in the spring, but in the summer this team was in a terrible situation, finishing the playoffs at 7-8. position. The hopes of fans of this formation were awakened again during the Regional Finals, in which the 19-year-old team triumphed, gaining a promotion to Worlds. Here, however, there was no hope of a happy ending crowned with the second world championship. Finally, Invictus was eliminated in the semi-finals, succumbing to their rivals from LPL, FunPlus Phoenix, who also won the world championship a few days later. This probably must have shaken the players and the organization, who came to the conclusion that it is time for major changes.
