Taiwan-based esports organization Flash Wolves have announced the suspension of jungler Hung “Karsa” Hau-Hsuan from their League of Legends team. The news was confirmed via the team’s official Twitter account in a statement from team manager Zhang “4Leaf” Yu.

Karsa allegedly prematurely quit game 2 of Flash Wolves vs. Raise Gaming, a match which took place on June 11. The team dubbed this as “[violating] competition rules and sportsmanship,” and have subsequently suspended him, apologizing for his behaviour.

While Karsa is suspended, Flash Wolves will be playing with Chen “Refrain” Kuan-Ting from J Team. Refrain will return to J Team once this period ends, although the announcement did not detail the length of the suspension.

Flash Wolves recently placed 3rd-4th at the Mid-Season Invitational. The team is currently competing in the League of Legends Master Series. They are currently 0-2 in series and tied for fifth place in the league.
