Park "Tank" Dan-won has announced that he and League of Legends Pacific Championship Series (PCS) squad Paris Saint-Germain Talon have mutually parted ways on Oct. 31. The news follows PSG Talon's elimination from the World Championship's group stage with a 2:4 record in Group B.

Tank's tenure within PSG Esports ends on a bittersweet note: although he helped them reach the 2020 World Championship as the PCS's #2 seed, he was unable to play with them during the play-ins, where stand-ins Hsiao "Kongyue" Jen-Tso and Chen "Uniboy" Chang-Chu dazzled the international audience. The visa issues he endured alongside jungler Kim "River" Dong-woo derailed his world championship campaign, as PSG Talon endured four losses as he and River ramped up.

The Korean mid laner's possible futures are unknown, although his tenure within PSG Talon reacquainted him to top-level League of Legends competition. Previously, he played in Snake Esports (now LNG Esports) alongside 2020 Worlds finalist Lê "SofM" Quang Duy and fell short of reaching Worlds in 2016.

However, Tank's career arc took a downward slope as he since played in China's second-division LoL Development League (LDL) and in South Korea's Challengers Korea (CK) circuit in 2019 and 2020. His abrupt move to PSG Talon came after previous mid laner Kim "Candy" Seung-ju left the organization to take a break from competitive play.

All eyes are on PSG Talon to announce Tank's replacement in the following days. The team has already tested Uniboy in the 2020 Worlds play-ins, where he and Kongyue built a case for themselves as future Talon members when they carried the team alongside Ling "Kaiwing" Kai Wing to the group stage through high-paced gameplay, dominating their play-in group in the process. As Kongyue and Uniboy's contracts with ahq eSports Club expire Nov. 2020, PSG Talon may be able to field that roster full-time in 2021.
