In the afternoon of December 8 (Vietnam time), an information was officially announced by the Weibo Gaming (WBG) team. Accordingly, WBG officially broke up with Jungler – Le “SofM” Quang Duy after a year of attachment since this group acquired Suning (SN). Thus, SofM has officially left after a long time fighting in the colors of SN – WBG. The separation was predicted but still made many fans, especially in Vietnam, somewhat disappointed.
Below the WBG’s post, many comments from the team’s fans as well as those of the LPL send their best wishes to SofM. This is quite understandable when SofM can be considered as one of the players who completely changed the style of junglers in the LPL. SofM’s somewhat bold and creative gameplay has been learned by many famous players, such as Canyon, Karsa… In addition, SofM is also a close friend of many famous names like Tian or Doinb.
The separation between SofM and WBG is inevitable when this team is completely reorganizing as well as the salary of the Vietnamese player is very high. WBG will face many difficulties with the rules of LPL if it retains the duo TheShy – SofM. As previously reported, only TheShy’s salary after the contract extension has also caused WBG’s salary fund to hit the ceiling. Not to mention, TheShy’s fame and influence is undisputed. And WBG has chosen SofM to be the one to leave.
Since coming to LPL to play, SofM has almost no chance to return to Vietnam to visit home. Also, most likely in the future, he will go home with Lily. Although currently, SofM has not made a decision for the new season, but if they return home, SofM can still continue to play at the top. This will probably be the best choice for the former World Finals 2020 runner-up at the moment.
