Earlier this week Sound departed from MVP Project. That left the roster with four men. With several upcoming tournaments where they are a participant, the organisation had to move quickly to secure a fifth player for the team.
22-year-old HoKyeong “timon” Ahn has been named as the replacement for Sound. While he is not from MVP.Pk; he has had a promising start to his career.
This is what the coach had to say about Timon;
“Sound made the decision to pursue his education and participate in his mandatory military service,” Kim said in the statement. “It will take about two years for him to complete.”
“HoKyeong aka timon, Sound’s replacement has been living with the team for the past two months as a back-up substitute. He was on the same team as XigN and HSK before they joined MVP, back in m0nster.
We were registered for the DreamHack Las Vegas qualifier, but decided to not participate in the end to give our players a vacation because of Sound’s announcement. The team has some tournaments coming up in the future, but I can’t release any information just yet.”
The current roster for MVP Project is :
Hyun-Pyo “XigN” Lee
Hae-Sung “HSK” Kim
Jung-Hyeon “rindA” Jeon
Soon-Woo “Argency” Kwon
HoKyeong “timon” Ahn
Ronald “Rambo” Kim (coach)
