EU LCS Team Preview – Origen

Line Up

Top: sOAZ

Jungle: Amazing

Mid: PowerOfEvil

Adc: Zven

Support: Mithy

Coach: xPeke

 

How will they fare?

Going from Challenger Series to semi-finals at worlds is quite a feat, and Origen will be hoping to look stronger as they go into the 2016 season. As a team they have remained mainly unchanged from last year, with only xPeke stepping back to a coaching role. The real question is can last year’s season be built on and even improved upon with PowerOfEvil in the mid lane?

This is Niels, in case you haven’t kept up to date with name changes. The towering marksman was a revelation for Origen last year and has cemented himself as an excellent player. With Mithy by his side once again it is tough to predict anything but dominance from Zven coming into the 2016 season.

The only new face in Origen is, in his own right, a great player. Coming to fame in the Unicorns of Love team that surprised the LCS community, PowerOfEvil showed he can be a force to be reckoned with in the mid lane and on roams. Only time will tell if he is an upgrade to xPeke, but on paper he looks a very good replacement for the famous player.

 

Our Prediction: 1st

William Whittingham
Hey there guys! I’m Phil and I’m a 19 year old from the lovely UK. I’ve always loved video games and can remember the first time I played Age of Empires on my mum’s laptop. This passion for gaming grew as I grew and went into overdrive when I found myself with money I could spend and my own computer and consoles. While you’ll mostly find me on the PC, either being shouted at in online games or shouting at the screen on Steam, I also have a soft spot for my Xbox One. My favorite games of all time include Crusaders Kings 2 and Thomas Was Alone.When you can find me away from gaming it was almost certainly not by choice. I’m currently still a student International Relations and Political Science. While away from keyboard I also enjoy playing football (or soccer if you prefer) and recording a podcast with some of my friends who should know better.I love keeping up to date with all the latest gaming news and I hope I can help you to do the same.I’ll see you out there!
