French jungler and former H2k Gaming player Jean-Victor “loulex” Burgevin has moved to North America and is current competing with Challenger squad Also Known As, sources close to the player and team tell the Daily Dot.
Burgevin is currently living with the team’s manager, Paul “Leara” Barbas, and will compete in the North American 2016 Challenger Series Open Qualifier.
After Begevin transferred one of his League of Legends accounts to North America several weeks ago, speculation has been rampant that he’d be making the move across the Atlantic. But it wasn’t clear where he intended to join, with the player himself stating that he had not signed anywhere yet:
Burgevin parted ways with H2k on Nov. 3 after Worlds, where the team took third place in their group below EDward Gaming and eventual champions SK Telecom T1. He was often criticized for his performance, with analysts going as far as to call him the weakest link in H2k’s armor.
The team signed former ROCCAT jungler Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski to replace him in November.
Burgevin is not the only former League Championship Series (LCS) player on the squad. Former Enemy top laner Cuong “Flaresz” Ta, who was relegated from the LCS just months ago, plays in the team’s top lane. Other notable names on the roster include former Coast support Vincent “Biofrost” Wang, as well as Samuel “Moonway” Oh, who was temporarily banned by Riot Games for account sharing earlier in the year.
