Leaving Alien Invasion[edit]

On August 4, 2014, Lillekanin left Alien Invasion with the following message:[1]

Hi guys. It's bittersweet for me to tell you this. Im one of the remaining Ai's from the old rooster we had back in the first patch of WoL. I've been in Ai for 3 years and 8 Months but it's time to spread my wings and fly. I've decided to go study radiology february 2015 and before that i need to do some preparation reading. That means i have around 6 months left of full time gaming and i want to get the most out of it. In the end Sc2 is a buisness for me, aswell as a passion. I got a prepaid contract offer from another team that i couldnt deny, because it makes it possible for me to travel to the bigger events.

But it's against my own will to say goodbye to you guys, since Ai has become more than just fellow gamers, but more like a family/community. I would like to thank Heiner and MeiD alot for the support and i really appreciate it. And to you other guys see you around and we'll stay in touch!

I will always have Ai in my blood. Sincerly

On the same day, Redbloods announced he was one of their new players, along with HaNfy.
