Schalke 04 has re-signed Maurice “Amazing” Stückenschneider as a player ahead of the final week of the 2019 LEC Spring Split regular season. The news comes after Amazing’s name appeared on the official Esports Global Contract Database.
The Esports Global Contract Database was created by Riot Games to outline contract details of all players participating in official Riot-sanctioned leagues. The database includes key information like player contract end-dates and residential status.
Amazing has been a key part of the Schalke 04 organization as a starting jungler in 2018 before transitioning to the head coach of Schalke’s Academy team. Now with the latest re-signing, Amazing is eligible to once again join the starting roster for the LEC team.
Some fans are questioning how Amazing’s return to the LEC team will affect them at such an important time. Schalke 04 sit in sixth place in the LEC with an 8-8 record. The team have a tense final week ahead, needing to secure wins against both Origen and Rogue to secure a definitive spot in the 2019 LEC Spring Split playoffs.
Schalke 04 will fight for their playoff spot, with or without Amazing, starting on March 15 at 4pm CT.
