The news follows Excel Esports' loss to SK Gaming, where SK dominated them during team fights and sealed the deal after Excel's risky decisions before a Baron Nashor takedown backfired. Despite securing a victory against MAD Lions on Week 2, Excel were unable to stabilize as scrimmage defeats piled up.
