With week 10 of the NA LCS coming to a close, we have a few LCS related announcements to catch up on!

Continue reading for details on Elementz becoming a free agent and the retirement of compLexity's brunch Ü.

Elementz becomes a free agent
As reported on Reign of Gaming, Elementz is now a free agent and will no longer be a starter for Curse.
""I've decided to become a free agent due to internal issues on the team, but I will remain on Team Curse as a reserve player to help the team finish out the season any way I can. Curse fans I couldn't thank you enough for all your support and helping me get to this point in my life. 
I would also like to thank the Curse organization and my teammates for making it this far together. It's unfortunate that this had to happen but life has a way of working things out and Steve and I have agreed that this is best decision for the team and myself. I am looking forward to the things to come and wish everyone I've met along the way the best of luck in the future."

On twitter, Elementz added:
"It's true I am free! I've decided to part ways with Curse and become a free agent. GL to all of Curse in the future."

Curse's manger, Liquid112, had this to say about the split: 
"Elementz has been an incredible asset to Team Curse since he joined, and has been instrumental in the success we’ve seen to-date. I founded the team three years ago with one underlying philosophy – that I would always do what was in the best interests of the team to succeed and perform at the best of their ability.

Cody and I have come to a mutual agreement that what is best for the team moving forward is for Elementz to become available to be picked up by other teams and for Curse to use Rhux for support in Playoffs. The Summer split trade start date begins on May 13th, 2013 and ends on August 10th, 2013 - during this time Cody will be available to sign with any LCS team or choose to continue as a reserve player for Curse, the decision will be up to him"

brunch Ü retries
Here is compLexity's announcement regarding the retirement of their AD carry, brunch Ü, from League of Legends.
"Today we are sad to announce that our teammate Josh "brunch Ü" Abrantes has decided to retire from professional gaming. We are disappointed that he will not be competing under the compLexity banner any longer but are honored that we had the opportunity to work with him. 
Josh had this to say to his followers on Twitter:
The compLexity League of Legends team will be competing in the League Championship Series North American qualifier, likely against Quantic Gaming in a best-of-five series, which is set to take place on May 12th. The qualifier match will determine if the team is invited back into LCS for the second half of Season 3. 
With the retirement of Brunch Ü and the upcoming qualifier looming, the AD carry role will temporarily be played by none other than Sam "Chuuper" Chu, who was recently replaced by Neil "Pr0lly" Hammad."
