After spending just under five months with H2K, the organization and assistant coach Son Seok' Stardust" Hee have parted ways according to an official Facebook announcement. 

"Stardust will always be a part of the H2K Family as he put his heart and mind into our Spring split preparation and was of vital help to pr0lly and the team in making sure we're playing at our best level."

"We sincerely thank him for the hard work, dedication, and level of professionalism displayed during his time in Berlin."

Stardust would also comment and say, "I really enjoyed working with H2K and the team and I have no doubts about their great future."

Stardust joined H2K in January 2017. He previously had seven years of experience in Starcraft, starting back in Proleague Season 2. He spent time with three teams across his professional career. During Dreamhack Summer 2013, Stardust made his way into the finals where he took down Jaedong 3-2 to mark his first win during a premier Starcraft II event.

When he was brought on to H2K, he was meant to work closely with AD Carry Shin "Nuclear" Jung-hyun and support Choi "Chei" Sun-ho. According to H2K, the goal in mind was to ease the transition of their newly formed bot lane into not only the EU LCS but also Europe as a region. 

After Stardust retweeted the announcement from H2K, somebody asked if the bot lane would be out from H2K as well. Stardust quickly replied and said:

H2K finished with a 10-3 record during the 2017 EU LCS Spring Split. In the playoffs they would eventually bow out to a streaking FNATIC in dramatic fashion, being swept 3-0.

As it stands, H2K will enter the 2017 EU LCS Summer Split with the same roster as none of the player's contracts are set to expire until November 20, 2017. Of course, the offseason could dramatically change things if the organization sees fit.
