We have decided to part ways with our player @HaKuOW. This is the best decision for both parties involved, and we him the best in his future.— ATL Academy (@ATLAcademyOW) March 14, 2020
The team released Haku after multiple controversies surrounding him involving multiple people emerged. These include allegations from streamer vGumiho accusing him of rape and allegations from former professional support player Phaz accusing him of bullying. Haku denies doing what both accuse him of.
Haku joined ATL Academy earlier this year and played with the team in their first Contenders appearance of the new year. He was previously a member of XL2 Academy, the academy team of the New York Excelsior, and Japan's 2019 World Cup team.
ATL Academy have no other flex support players. They will need a replacement before they play in Contenders Trials this week.
