After a series of disappointing APEX finishes and the loss of their star player, Flash Lux has announced that the roster will be disbanding prior to APEX Season 5. The statement thanked both players and fans for their support and work during the team's existence. There is no news on the rest of the roster's future, with the exception of Fleta who joined Seoul Dynasty last month.
안녕하세요. 플래시 럭스 입니다.— Flash Lux (@FlashLuxOW) November 13, 2017
오늘을 기점으로 플래시 럭스는 해체를 결정하게 되었습니다. 팀 내 선수들은 다른 팀으로 이적하거나 각자의 생활로 돌아가게 되었습니다. 그 동안 플래시 럭스 팀을 응원해주신 팬 여러분들과 그 동안 함께 해왔던 선수들에게 감사의 인사를 드립니다.

After qualifying for the inaugural season, Flash Lux notably won the first ever APEX match back on October 7th, 2016 - a tight back and forth series against a Rhinos Gaming Titans team that featured Munchkin and claris. Flash Lux did not win a regular season game in APEX in their following 11 matches.
Flash Lux notoriously avoided relegation by a whisker. They were able to recover after APEX Season 2 by gaining wins in Super Week over Afreeca Freecs Red and MVP Infinity to keep them in the tournament, and benefited from the lack of foreign teams and subsequent removal of relegation for APEX Season 4.

Korea has already lost their three most dominant and consistent rosters to Overwatch League Season 1, creating a vastly different landscape for APEX Season 5. Flash Lux's roster now joins Afreeca Freecs' in the history books, creating another hole to fill with new talent. Currently, there are no details available for the next season of APEX.
