The Flash Wolves, a Taiwanese League team, has suspended Hung “Karsa” Hau-Hsuan for intentionally disconnecting from a game before the match concluded.
On June 12th, the organization wrote a post explaining the decision to indefinitely suspend Karsa on its official team website. This disciplinary action had been decided after an internal review of the player’s conduct.
In Game 2 against Raise Gaming on June 11th, Karsa quit the game before the Nexus was destroyed. The Flash Wolves consider his actions to have “violated competition rules and sportsmanship.”
J Team’s Chen “Refra1n” Kuan-Ting will fill Karsa’s spot. Having played on the Flash Wolves for about 2 years previously, Refra1n has signed on the terms that he will return to J Team after Karsa’s suspension period ends.
Meanwhile, intentional disconnection has become a common issue in LCK as well. In the past, Korean teams including Samsung Galaxy, Afreeca Freecs, and KT Rolster have been issued Cautions and lost set points due to quitting the game prematurely.
