LGD Gaming says goodbye to Peanut
The LPL teams are going through some major changes during the free agency period, and LGD Gaming is one of them. They participated in this year’s World Championship but failed to make it past the Group stage. Unfortunately for LGD’s members, it seems that they’re now going to have to find a new home for the upcoming season.
LGD announced Peanut’s free agency today through its Weibo profile. The announcement states that Peanut agreed to have his contract terminated. Additionally, the letter contains other information about Peanut’s professional League of Legends history. They mentioned that his five plus years of being in the competitive scene carry many highlights, and that “he is always making attempts and striving for his future.” Several LPL journalists also shared the news on Twitter.
A change in the LPL
Additionally, Peanuts’ teammates are also leaving due to expiring contracts. LGD’s former players Xie “Langx” Zhen-Ying, Ha “Kramer” Jong-hun, and Guo “Lies” Hao-Tian are now looking for opportunities.

At the moment, the most notable change in the LPL is the removal of Suning’s Hu “SwordArt” Shuo-Chieh. The support player is currently in talks with TSM, but the deal might not go through due to visa and immigration issues. SwordArt’s move from the LPL to the LCS in North America is a big deal, as he’s considered one of China’s best supports.
