Misfits Gaming has acquired Splyce mid laner Chres “Sencux” Laursen and support Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle, the team announced via Twitter earlier today.
Formerly of Splyce, Sencux and Mikyx have played together in the EU LCS for almost two years. During this time, the two qualified for the 2016 World Championship on Splyce, but failed to make it past the group stage.
Despite their 2016 achievement, Splyce failed to make a second World Championship appearance in 2017. While the team remained a strong force in the EU LCS, Splyce failed to make it past the quarterfinals in the spring and summer playoffs.
Although Splyce intended to swap Mikyx out for Raymond “kaSing” Tsang, according to an ESPN report, Splyce wanted to keep Sencux. Now without a mid laner, Splyce is on the clock if it wants to grab an established European mid lane free agent like Fabian “Febiven” Diepstraten.
This roster reveal comes only hours after Misfits announced the departure of Tristan “PowerOfEvil” Schrage and Lee “IgNar” Dong-geun. With this announcement, Misfits has seemingly completed its roster for the 2018 season, barring any last minute changes.
