The London Spitfire parted ways with South Korean players Jae-hee “Gesture” Hong and Joon-yeong “Profit” Park, the team announced Tuesday.
“We’ve won a championship together — a feat that will never be forgotten,” the team posted on Twitter. “Thank you and we wish you the best of luck with what your future holds for you.”

The 21-year-old Gesture and 19-year-old Profit each joined Spitfire in November 2017 from GC Busan. They helped Spitfire win the inaugural Overwatch League season in 2018 with a 2-0 win over the Philadelphia Fusion, with Profit being selected MVP of the Grand Finals.
The team finished seventh in Season 2 and was eliminated by eventual champion San Francisco in the playoffs.
The Spitfire announced earlier this month that it had released Ji-hyeok “Birdring” Kim, Jong-seok “NUS” Kim and Hee-dong “Guard” Lee, along with coach Jeong-min “Jfeel” Kim.
