OMEGA Esports just made an omega move!
Omega announced on October 26 that its Wild Rift roster is officially disbanded. Back in September, the organization already lost two members which included their coach.
Finally, the organization has officially removed all of its remaining players. According to speculations, Moonton’s exclusivity clause is the reason behind this decision.
“Today, we formally announce the exit of our LOL: Wild Rift under the Omega Esports name,” captioned Omega Esports. “Thank you for representing the green and blue jersey and see you guys around!” Omega Esports’ post read.
The Filipino organization is one of the first teams to enter the Wild Rift scene in the country.
During their stint, the organization has won several feats including Wild Rift Asia Brawl 2021, Bit Wars Open Qualifier #2.
Additionally, Omega Esports also bagged Zenith Open Asia Spring, and the Philippines Pro Gaming League (PPGL) Summer Split: Luzon South Regionals titles.
Despite securing multiple successes, the organization fell short in securing an invite to Wild Rift Southeast Asia Championship 2021. Omega has placed 4th place in the PPGL 2021 Fall: Playoffs, just a few ranks away from the required placement for a Southeast Asia Championship 2021 appearance.
Few moments after their upsetting defeat, the team’s Singaporean coach John “Glaceox” Lim departed the team. Along with the coach, players Jaiby “JLC” Paglingayen and John Loyd “Impressive” Dela Cruz also bid their farewells with Omega.
Following the changes, many fans assumed that the organization will simply work on a revamp. However, their recent disbandment shows that the organization might simply detach from the game entirely.
As of this moment, Omega Esports has yet to announce any decision regarding its future plans.
