ImageDespite a satisfactory second place finish in Korea's elite The Champions, Samsung Galaxy Ozone will swap mid laners with their sister team.

Ozone mid laner and high-level Korean solo queue player KR dade is moving to sister team Samsung Galaxy Blue. The announcement was made today on KR inven. As for his replacement, up-and-coming star KR Deft will fill the gap as he completes the switch from Blue to Ozone.

KR dade first joined the Ozone line-up (back then under the MVP banner) in February 2013. Dubbed "ELO God dade" for his impeccable solo queue performances, he rose to prominence following an incredible Ozone run at The Champions Spring 2013, where his team devastated the heavily favoured KR CJ Entus Blaze in the final. After a respectable 3rd place finish in the following edition of The Champions, the mid laner had a disastrous tournament at the US Season 3 World Championship finals which saw his squad being eliminated in the group stage. In more recent events, KR dade helped his team in finishing runner-up to KR Faker's SK Telecom T1, but that seems to have not guaranteed his stay.

On the other hand, his replacement, KR Pawn is known as the driving force behind the Samsung Galaxy Blue line-up. After they upset the heavy favourites KR SK Telecom T1 in the WCG qualifier using a Nidalee/Lucian comp, the mid laner has been regarded as a player to watch out for. An interesting fact regarding Pawn would be that he is the player with most solo queue games in Korea, around 3800.

KR Choi "DanDy" In-kyu - Jungler
KR Heo "Pawn" Won-seok - Mid
