Just more than a month after Chong Xin "Ohaiyo" Khoo joined LGD.Forever Young, the LGD organization made an announcement today on their Weibo with regards to his departure. Below is the full translation of their post:
LGD.Forever Young’s performance has been lackluster ever since the latest roster change. From failing to qualify for DreamLeague to a terrible performance at PGL Bucharest Major, the management and players have decided to make the following changes after much considerations:
We would like to welcome our former offlaner Inflame back to the team and he will resume his role as an offlaner. Due to the lack of chemistry within the team, our offlane player Ohaiyo will be leaving the team. We would like to thank Ohaiyo for his contributions to LFY. He is an extremely calm and high-skilled player, and has shown amazing performances in many big tournaments. We hope that he will be able to return to the battlefield soon and any team that has an interest in him can contact us directly. We hope that Inflame’s return to LFY can lead the team out of their slump and bring back their determination to win!
We will be playing in the DPL Top League from Mar. 13 onwards as well as Epicenter and Starladder i-league Invitational thereafter. We hope that LFY can resume their form as soon as possible and fight for honor!
Ohaiyo was brought to LFY in early February, following a dynamic time for the team shuffle-wise. The month had not only seen the loaning of Leong "DDC" Fat-meng to VGJ.Thunder, but also He "Inflame" Yongzheng's taking a break during problems with his cervical vertebra. Ohaiyo, alongside Yao "Yao" Zhengzheng, were brought in to fill the roster.
By returning, Inflame will reunite with much of the roster which took the bronze at last year's International, while Ohaiyo is once again a free agent, looking for a team. The Malaysian was also unexpectedly kicked from Fnatic after being part of the team for almost three years, replaced by former Evil Geniuses offlaner Saahil "UNiVeRsE" Arora.
Here is the finalized roster for LFY:
