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.

Elements

 

Following the rumored departure of Rekkles come more potential roster changes for Elements in the off-season.

It has been reported that both Ilyas “Shook” Hartsema and Mike “Wickd” Petersen are exploring other options, dissatisfied with the current state and future of the team.  Sitting just out of relegation, the team is a shadow of it’s former self, having been the number one team in Europe just last split. Since it’s acquisition of former Fnatic AD Carry Rekkles, the team has taken an unexpected dive in the standings, crashing to seventh place in the 2015 Spring Split.

From the article:

Both players, along with Larsson, have grown increasingly disillusioned with the team and don’t feel that the current roster can match their expectations. He added that the team will rebuild around the remaining two players in the organization, Henrik “Froggen” Hansen and Mitch “Krepo” Voorspoels.

While not confirmed, if the three players did leave the Elements team, recently acquired substitutes Erik “Tabzz” Van Helvert and Marcel “Dexter” Feldkamp would be the most likely replacements for the starting roster.

EG

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.
