Top StarCraft Player Leaves For League of Legends

Sad news for StarCraft fans, but great news for League of Legends fans. Lee "MarineKing" Jung Hoon, one of the most famous and iconic personalities of the StarCraft eSports scene is stepping away from space battles and entering League of Legends territory.

According to South Korean site Inven, he had several reasons to switch, one of them is a growing interest in MOBAs and another, more significant one that his performance wasn't really good since StarCraft II's expansion Heart of the Swarm came out, introducing massive changes to multiplayer.

At least he won't be leaving his team, shifting over to the newly-formed Prime League of Legends branch.

We'll all miss MarineKing's superb, trademark unit control (proof video below!) and lets hope he'll be just as entertaining in LoL as he was in StarCraft.
