Choosing to focus on behind the scenes business at Origen, Enrique ‘xPeke‘ Cedeño Martínez 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‘ Seung-hoon  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. During a stream on Saturday, he said “I would say there’s a good chance I’m gonna go to NA instead of Europe” 

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.

New Elements Roster Banner

 

Following numerous rumors on players leaving, and with Rekkles heading to Fnatic, Elements has finalized their roster for the LCS Summer Split.

The team is a complete rework of it’s former, with only Henrik “Froggen” Hansen remaining from the 2015 Spring Split line-up. This also marks the return of AD Carry Erik ”Tabzz” van Helvert, who played with the team in the 2014 LCS under the Alliance banner.

With a 7th place finish and narrowly avoiding relegation, changes were definitely necessary for the Elements squad. With a fresh roster built around veteran Mid Laner Froggen, they hope to contend for not only the top spot in EU, but at the 2015 World Championship.

Jacob Toft-Andersen, Elements team Owner, had this to say:

We have tailored and tinkered with the new lineup for months now and put a lot of effort into ensuring that the team were equally motivated, had the desired attitude and would function as a cohesive unit both in and outside of the game.

I am very happy and proud to announce the Elements LCS Summer lineup will be:

– Jesper ‘Jwaow‘ Strandgren

– Marcel “dexter” Feldkamp

– Henrik “Froggen” Hansen

– Erik ”Tabzz” van Helvert

– Hampus ‘promisq‘ Abrahamsson

With Patrick” Nyph” Funke continuing as our Head Coach.

In April, rumors of Elements hosting tryouts for multiple roles popped up all over the place. With Krepo’s retirement and Rekkles returning to Fnatic, the current EL roster remains a mystery. Despite this, replacements have been speculated, and the leading spot for top lane has been said to be Jesper “Jwaow” Strandgren, the current top laner for recently relegated MeetYourMakers.

Now, it seems the former Strandgren is one step closer to joining the team. Elements Top Laner Mike “Wickd” Petersen announced during his stream that he would not be playing for Elements in the summer split, and that it was “obvious.”

With 3 weeks left until the Summer Split begins, Elements finalized roster will be a shell of it’s former iteration, with Froggen the only confirmed member of the roster.

In the latest round of surprise announcements, Kevin “kev1n” Rubiszewski, former top laner of Millenium, has released a video confirming his addition to the Elements roster, replacing current top laner Mike “Wickd” Petersen. Rumors cite a stylistic clash as the reason for the benching.

This will mark the first time Elements mid laner Henrik “Froggen” Hansen will be playing in a team without Petersen since the start of his competitive career.  The duo has played the game together across several organizations, notably Evil Geniuses, Alliance, and Counter Logic Gaming.

It has been one of the worst kept and most predictable secrets that the professional LoL scene has had in quite some time. Nevertheless, it is finally official; Froggen, Wickd, Snoopeh, Krepo and Yellowpete will play under the EG banner from now on.

Evil Geniuses, founded in 1999, are one of the oldest and best established organisations in eSports. After avoiding League for a very long time, they finally found the right team to invest in. We wish them the best of luck in Season 3, though they probably won’t need it.
