It seems that after oGs disbanded, VINES signed a rather short contract with Empire that ended in September. He will be leaving now and becoming a free agent.
Statement from Empire's manager, Alexander Solomonov:
It's a pity to say goodbye such good player as VINES. I can say only good words about him. We had no problems with communication in team, because VINES knows english at basic level and it helped a lot. I want to thank him for games and victories at leagues.
Decision about player's future was not easy. After talking with VINES we decided not to sign new contract and it will be better for both sides. I wish to VINES good luck at upcoming Code A qualification and find new home, from our side we will help him with it.
Our current roster is ready to new leagues season. Empire will take part on EG MCSL VIII and try to move at IPL Premier division. We like team matches and will show best games. And for sure Empire needs top level zerg player to complete our roster, we will try to find him!
They pick up VINES, did nothing with him, then drop him. I hope Empire picks up someone more reputably certain and takes more advantage of their players and their ability to play! They treat their players well, just wish they exposed them more.

VINES was about to break out in GSL Season 2, but then oGs disbanded. So much talent, sad that he went even more unnoticed on Empire than on oGs before. Hope he finds a new team, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him retiring soon.

Yeah he's definitely a player with his peak still ahead of him. Should be an interesting player for a lot of teams, although if we've learned anything from the signings of Ganzi/Taeja, teams tend to go for big names rather than potential. Maybe Liquid could be interested?
On a purely personal note, I'd like to show Yellow the beauty of infinitely repeating Starcraft 2 bunkers. -Boxer
