Kuro transferred to Afreeca in 2016 since the breaking of the “Old ROX” roster. Kuro has been the starting mid laner for the team ever since. Kuro joins his previous teammates, Peanut, PraY and GorillA as free agents in 2018 offseason market. Kramer has played for Flash Wolves and CJ in the past, while TusiN joined Afreeca after having played for Incredible Miracles. As three veterans leave the team, Afreeca is very likely to recruit more players.
Afreeca is not the only LCK team making drastic changes to their roster. Only twenty-four hours ago, both Kingzone DragonX and SK Telecom T1 announced that they will be dropping a large portion of their roster. Earlier in the week, Gen.G Esports has also announced that the team has parted ways with many players from its 2017 World Champion roster.
Afreeca is now expected to build their team around their top lane, Kiin. Kiin has been the superstar of Afreeca in both domestic and international tournaments, and it has been rumored that Afreeca will make roster changes around the super-rookie.
