Lincoln "fnx" Lau has revealed that it was his wish to step down from Immortals' starting lineup.
The 27-year-old has relinquished his position on the Brazilian team just three months after signing for Immortals, who have confirmed via Facebook that "internal issues" had taken their toll on the squad's performances.
The North American organisation hinted that moving Lincoln "fnx" Lau to the bench was a team decision, but the former SK Gaming member has now painted a different picture, claiming that the decision was his choice.
"After Immortals' announcement, I would like to say that it was my decision to drop to the bench," he wrote on Twitter.
"My reasons will remain secret, out of respect for Immortals. I do not have a destination set, and I will wait for the offers to come to choose the best option for me.
"I will keep giving updates and I hope you will continue to support me. I would like to thank Immortals for their support during these months. They have never done me wrong."
Immortals' squad has been depleted to just four members, with team coach Rafael "zakk" Fernandes set to continue to fill in for them until a permanent solution is found.
