SK Gaming Signs Gilius for the 2022 Season

Erberk “Gilius” Demir will reportedly be signing with SK Gaming for the 2022 competitive season, as per the Upcomer. The fact that he’ll still compete on the LEC stage — despite his previous org selling its franchising spot — is not only great news for this seasoned Turkish jungler but the LEC as a whole. He’s undoubtedly one of the most charismatic players out there and mighty good at the game as well.He might not be a premier jungler who’s going to challenge for the LEC throne, but he’s not to be trifled with either. He’s been playing at the highest of levels for years. While most of his contemporaries have since retired or gone into coaching, Gilius is still stealing Barons and leading his teams to the playoffs (at least more often than not).Schalke finished in the Top 6 for two years s...

Patrik Reportedly Staying With Excel Esports for 2022

Patrik “Patrik” Jírů, one of the more underrated AD carries in the LEC, is reportedly going to stay with Excel Esports for the 2022 competitive season. Now, if you’re an Excel fan, you’re surely elated beyond measure. On the other hand, if you’re a Patrik fan specifically, you’re probably not too happy about his decision. He’s been a standout performer for years, yet he’s never really had a good enough team to support him. His stint with Origen back in 2019 was solid, but it didn’t last that long. He is by no means the second coming of Martin “Rekkles” Larsson, of course, but we’ve seen his immense highs, and we were not left indifferent.  He’s been with Excel for two years now, and it’s been quite an underwhelming journey. Across their four splits, they had never finished higher ...

Better yet, he won’t be the only one who’ll get a “promotion,” with Raphaël “Targamas” Crabbé also supposedly coming to an agreement with the former “kings of Europe” G2 Esports.Interestingly enough, both players had made their debuts years ago, but neither were ever really given a fair shot at proving ...
