Earlier this month, Dignitas announced that they'd given star Top Laner, Heo "Huni" Seung-hoon, permission to look for other teams before the League of Legends Championship Series Summer Split after a disappointing Spring left them out of the LCS Playoffs. He has now been dropped from the org in Riot Games' Global Contract Database found here. (Warning, it is a huge webpage, and will slow your computer.)
Dignitas has not currently made any announcement about his removal, nor has Huni announced any further movement himself, but it's safe to say he will not be playing for the team this Summer. Alongside Huni, Jungler Jonathan "Grig" Armao was dropped from the database on April 23rd. Matthew "Akaadian" Higginbotham finished up the Spring Split as the team's starting Jungler, and is now the sole Dignitas Jungler for the time being.
Last Fall, Huni was reported to be making an incredible $2.3 million across his two-year salary in guaranteed money. However, earlier this month, CEO Michael Prindiville stated the report was wrong, and his contract was not guaranteed.
Inven Global has reached out to Dignitas for comment and will update upon retrieval. We will be watching this story closely. Please follow our Twitter below for updates as more news comes forward regarding Dignitas and the players.
