J.Storm announced that despite its win at WSOE, the organization has decided to undergo roster changes. In particular, the Dota 2 team has let go of Sangdon “FoREv” Lee. This means David “Moo” Hull is moving to the position vacated by FoREv. To complete the roster, J.Storm acquired Roman “Resolut1on” Fomynok from Forward Gaming, who is expected to play on position one.

While the team did win at WSOE 6: Dota 2 - Serenity's Destiny, it has not fared as expected in many of the DPC events. For both the Kuala Lumpur Major and Chongqing Major, J.Storm was eliminated by Fnatic in the second round of the Lower Bracket. The team didn't fare as well during DreamLeague Season 11 as it was eliminated early in the tournament by Natus Vincere. Finally, J.Storm failed to qualify for the recently concluded MDL Disneyland Paris Major after being beaten by Evil Geniuses 1-2 in the Upper Bracket and then eliminated by Team Team, now known as beastcoast, 1-2.

In addition to experiencing disappointing results, the team said in a statement that behind the scenes, there was a problem of practice games and communication.

FoREv more or less confirmed the same in a statement that he released. He admits that while his English has never been perfect, he continues to find ways to improve. He revealed that the first time he used English was when he was part of MVP Phoenix and Jimmy "DeMoN" Ho joined the team. Even then, his vocabulary was limited to five words.

By August 2016, he had received a number of offers from different teams and knew that he had to learn English. This problem first manifested itself when he joined Team Secret. While playing for this team, he admitted that he had a hard time communicating with teammates. The situation when he joined Digital Chaos was the same.

Talking about his future plan, FoREv said that he initially planned to be with J.Storm until he retired. He revealed that he plans to sign for two years on his next Dota 2 team. He also wishes that it will be the same long-term relationship that he had with MVP.
