League of Legends Worlds Champion Mata Wants to Leave RNG

November 16, 2016 John Paolo "Sandata" Bago

Season 4 Worlds Finals MVP, ex-Samsung White and now Support player for Chinese team Royal Never Give-up (RNG), Cho “Mata” Sehyoung has expressed his intention to leave China and return to Korea to continue his career.

In a Facebook post on his official page, the star Support player said that health issues are his main reasons for wanting to go back and play in Korea.

However, recently revealed rulings in China might also factor to the Worlds champion’s decision. Yesterday, Chinese-scene reporter from The Score Kelsey Moser published a piece outlining China’s League of Legends Association of Chinese Esports’ (L.ACE) decision to enforce stricter visa rules for teams and players. The measure is thought to address irregularities in payments that stem from the non-working status some foreign players have with regards to their visas as they play for Chinese teams.
