How will they fare?
H2k-Gaming were almost the surprise package of the EU scene last year, beating teams such as Unicorns of Love and ROCCAT to worlds. While they did not make it out of the group stages they gave a good account for themselves and have gone from strength to strength in the off season. The strong pair Jankos and VandeR should help to gel the new team together and FORG1VEN is one of, if not the best, marksman in Europe when he wants to be. Predicting great thinks from this side is not brave or crazy, but the obvious decision.
Star Man – FORG1VEN (Adc)
One of the more controversial names in recent EU LCS history, FORG1VEN has been called out for a number of failings over the last season in particular. First catching the scenes eye with Copenhagen Wolves, FORG1VEN went on to play for SK-Gaming and Gambit before signing on with H2k this season. Known for his mechanical prowess and aggressive style he should fit in well with his new support VandeR and aggressive jungler Jankos.
You may have heard of – Jankos (Jungle)
The first blood king has been making the rounds in LCS as one of the best junglers at this level. Jankos is known for his aggression and brave ganks and his play style will certainly do well in this H2k side. Coming from ROCCAT after two years of loyal service he will be hoping that this new roster can get him a ticket to worlds so he can test himself against the best the global game has to offer.
