Legacy of the Void
Coming back to progaming (March 2016 - September 2016)
After his last match in Heart of the Swarm, Pet took several months long break from competing, as later turned out, due to stress. He reappeared in March 2016 as it was announced that he joined team MVP and was listed on their roster for 2016 Proleague Round 2. Despite being fielded in the lineup, he didn't get to play any games that round. However, he played in 2 matches in Round 3 losing both to Solar and Stats.
In September, 2016, Pet earned a spot in the 2016 KeSPA Cup. In the Qualifier he defeated RagnaroK, DRGLing, as well as recent 2016 SSL Season 2 finalist Dark. In Ro16 he was placed in Group B where he first defeated herO 2-1, then lost to TY 0-2 in the Winners' Match and eventually won against TRUE 2-1 advancing to Ro8 on second place. In the Quarterfinals Pet faced Neeb and despite almost making a comeback, he was defeated 2-3 ending his run on 5th-8th place.
Living without team (October 2016 - January 2017)
After the news of Proleague being discontinued, most of the Korean teams disbanded their StarCraft II rosters. The situation of team MVP was unclear as they stated that they are considering continuing StarCraft II support but it was known that all players, including Pet, moved out of the teamhouse. At the end of November 2016, Pet started streaming on Twitch with both Korean and English commentary.
Pet continued regular streams and in the middle of December, 2016, became a Twitch Partner. He also appeared on the Dank Shrine podcast on December 23, giving an interview for the first time fully in English.
On December 27, 2016, Pet took part in the 2017 GSL Season 1 Qualifier. In his first match he lost to Trap, than in the lower bracket he defeated Rookie to face Trap in a rematch but once again the Protoss was victorious, eliminating Pet from the tournament.
