ViCi Gaming has announced that they will be parting ways with Tao ‘Franke19’ Deng. The 25-year-old rifler had joined the organization back in May this year after Cheung ‘Freeman’ Wing Hei had left the roster.

The announcement comes just days after ViCi Gaming suffered a harsh third-place finish at the MSI Gaming Arena 2019, that took place alongside ESL One: New York 2019 a week ago.

Frank19 had been a part of ViCi for a short duration but during his stay has contributed by qualifying for IEM Beijing 2019, while also winning CS.MONEY Asian Emperor.

The replacement for the player has not been announced yet by ViCi Gaming, but with IEM Beijing just a month away, the team must have already started looking for a new player.

The current ViCi Gaming squad is as follows,

  • ZhiHong ‘aumaN’ Liu

  • Zhuo ‘advent’ Liang

  • WeiJie ‘zhokiNg’ Zhong

  • Andrew ‘Kaze’ Khong
