Nordic players at the EU LCS in Royal ArenaThe Quarterfinals will soon determine who will show gl. ory in Copenhagen’s, Royal Arena, 7-8 april.
Martin “Wunder” Hansen – G2 Esports
Wunder is a consistent top laner — consistently aggressive. Even when playing tanks like Nautilus and Maokai, Wunder is more than happy to overextend for a kill. That aggressive playstyle got in him trouble in his rookie split, but he adjusted and became one of the best top laners in the EU LCS.
Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen – Fnatic
Broxah is Fnatic’s impressive young jungler.After spending just a month on Fnatic Academy, Broxah was called up to the EU LCS to play for the main squad. He made the most of his opportunity, helping Fnatic to a 3rd place finish in both the Spring and Summer Splits. Now, in his sophomore season, Broxah will g et another chance at his first EU LCS title.
Rasmus “Caps” Winther – Fnatic
Caps has faced many challenges in his young career. He has openly talked about wanting to follow in the footsteps of other great European mid laners, and even stated he would love to get to the level of SKT’s Faker. His journey will now take him up against some of the best mid laners the world has to offer.
Kasper “Kobbe” Kobberup – Splyce
Kobbe didn’t always want to be a professional gamer. He was dedicated to football before an injury sent him to the sideline and he had to rethink his options. Luckily for Splyce, Kobbe took up League of Legends. Before long, he became one of the best up-and-coming ADCs in Europe.
Martin “Rekkles” Larsson – Fnatic
Rekkles is, perhaps, the most famous player in the EU LCS and is among its best. His tumultuous year brought both highs and lows for the longtime Fnatic captain, but he persevered to put on a strong performance at Worlds. His Kennen pick was one of the year’s many highlights — will he pull out similar tricks from his pocket in 2018?
Petter “Hjarnan” Freyschuss – G2 Esports
Hjarnan is ready to prove himself on a new roster for 2018. After Team Vitality was knocked out of the 2016 EU LCS Spring Playoffs, Hjarnan found himself benched for the Summer Split. After Vitality barely avoided the Promotion Tournament, Hjarnan departed.
He has big shoes to fill as the starting ADC for G2 Esports. He’ll be paired in the bot lane with Korean support Wadid. They have a tall task ahead of them to defend G2’s title, but Hjarnan will be motivated to make the most of this new opportunity.
Jonas “Memento” Elmarghich – ROCCAT
Memento was originally a solo queue star before kickstarting his professional career in 2015.He then joined Team ROCCAT as their starting jungler in mid 2016. He, along with the entire team, struggled in the LCS and eventually had to play in the EU LCS Promotion Tournament in order to re-enter the league.
After struggling with ROCCAT, Memento looked for other opportunities to showcase his abilities and landed with Giants Gaming in early 2017.
Now back with ROCCAT, he’ll have another shot to prove that he belongs with the best in Europe when spring rolls around.
Tore “Norskeren” Hoel Eilertsen – ROCCAT
Norskeren is the support player for ROCCAT. After playing on several Challenger Series teams from 2016, he finally got his opportunity to make it on the big stage with ROCCAT. As one of the rookies this year, he is set to prove himself as one of the rising star supports in the EU LCS.
