Yuki leaves Alliance, takes break from playing: ‘This journey has been truly remarkable’

Yuki leaves Alliance

British Apex Legends professional player Oscar ‘Yuki’ Jiang has left Alliance and bid farewell to fans in a statement.

The Swedish esports organisation posted an update on their Apex roster this weekend, saying he has stepped down after more than two years with the org ‘to take a competitive break and pursue new opportunities’.

“This is his last ALGS weekend on the main roster so make sure to join us cheering for him. Yuki will still join us for Apex Asia Festival in Tokyo and will remain on the roster as a sub for now,” Alliance said in a brief statement below.

Yuki has competed at the highest level of Apex Legends esports, the Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS), and has been one of the top UK pro players in the game.

Alliance’s roster now includes Hakis and Effect. It’s not currently clear how this roster may change in the future, or who may replace the UK player.

Yuki took to X (aka Twitter) to state ‘it’s been a pleasure’.

In a statement, he said: “Hello ALLfam, after four-plus years of playing competitive Apex and a majority of those years in Alliance – the time has come for me to step down from the team.

“Being part of this community has been an unforgettable experience, filled with triumphs, challenges, and most importantly, the unwavering support from all of you. Each cheer, every word of encouragement, and the shared excitement during our victories have made this journey truly remarkable.

“I want to express my deepest appreciation to all of you who have stood by my side, cheering me on through thick and thin. I am forever grateful for the incredible memories we’ve created together.”


“I have immense confidence in the team’s future, and I believe they will continue to soar to new heights.

“To my teammates, coaches, and the entire organization, I extend my heartfelt thanks for the camaraderie, mentorship, and the unforgettable moments we’ve shared.

“As I embark on new adventures, I hope you’ll join me in wishing the team all the success and victories they deserve. Onto phase two. Yuki out.”
