kaze parts ways with Flash

Andrew "kaze" Khong's contract with Flash has expired, the player announced on Twitter today.

The Malaysian player was a part of Flash from the inception of the team, that came together at the start of 2017 with a lot of fanfare. Alongside the AWPer, Chinese stars YuLun "⁠Summer⁠" Cai and YuanZhang "⁠Attacker⁠" Sheng were set to spearhead Flash, but the team wasn't able to live up to the expectations, not even after a plethora of roster changes.

kaze is now a free agent

Even though Andrew "⁠Kaze⁠" Khong's departure wasn't official, Flash have been playing without him for a while, attending the StarLadder Invitational and earning a place at the ESL Pro League S7 APAC Finals LAN while using a full-Chinese lineup.

Only today has Kaze announced that he will not be extending his contract with Flash after it ran out, becoming a free agent, similarly to Benjamin "⁠moxie⁠" Kou, who played his last event for BOOT-d[S] this month.

Flash haven't formalized their new lineup, but have recently been seen playing with the following five:

China YuanZhang "⁠Attacker⁠" Sheng
China KunHua "⁠LOVEYY⁠" Bai
China YuLun "⁠Summer⁠" Cai
China Zhe "⁠Ayeon⁠" Yang
China ZhiHong "⁠aumaN⁠" Liu
