Froggen to replace xPeke at 2015 All-Star event, discusses potentially playing in North America
Choosing to focus on behind the scenes business at Origen,Â EnriqueÂ ‘xPeke‘Â CedeÃ±o MartÃnez has opted out of the upcoming 2015 All-Star Event in Los Angeles. Taking place from December 10-13, the event will feature players from around the globe competing in teams voted in by their region.
Normally, Febiven would take the place of xPeke, receiving the second highest amount of votes. However with a two player per team limit to each squad, and Heo ‘Huni‘Â Seung-hoon Â and Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larsson already set to attend, it is likely that the player with the 3rd most votes, Henrik ‘Froggen‘ Hansen will fill in. Should Froggen attend, it will be the first time witnessing the long awaited, much hyped duel against SK Telecom T1’s Lee ‘Faker‘ Sang-hyeok.
Crossing new waters
In addition to the news of attending All-Stars, there is also speculation that he may join the wave of players transferring to play in the North American LCS.Â During a streamÂ on Saturday, he saidÂ “I would say there’s a good chance I’m gonna go to NA instead of Europe”Â
While unconfirmed, Froggen’s current team, Elements, consists of just him and support player Patrick “Nyph” Funke. With the team in disarray and his contract having ended on November 1st, it wouldn’t be out of the question for the veteran mid laner to get a fresh start after a disappointing season under the Elements banner.
NoL will continue to provide updates as information becomes available.
