The rumors are true.

Later this week, Singaporean star carry Gavin Kang 'Meracle' Jian Wen will be joining Mineski.Sports5 in China for the 2016 Pro Gamer League Summer Finals, the team's first international stint in the wake of their disastrous collapse at the TI6 Qualifiers last month.

The same tournament will also be the returning Michael 'Ninjaboogie' Ross' first campaign with his old team.

With the change, spitfire playmaker Ryan Jay 'Raging-_-Potato' Qui is expected to return to the midlane, allowing the team to further maximize utilizing his playmaking skills. In the meantime, Benhur 'Ben' Lawis and Mark 'Cast' Pilar have both been benched, and will not be joining the team in its second voyage to China this year.

Mski.Sports5, alongside MVP Phoenix, will look to represent the SEA/KR region in the upcoming tournament, which begins on July 23.
