We already knew that Rfrsh Entertainment would be partnering with Origen to enter into League of Legends' new European Championship (LEC), and now they've revealed the full roster that will compete in the competition.
Rfrsh says that the roster is "a reflection of the brand: A mix of young and experienced international players with a hunger to work hard and constantly improve as individuals, and as a team."
In the top lane we'll see Barney 'Alphari' Morris from Wales, while in the Jungle there's Jonas 'Kold' Andersen from Denmark. From Spain we have former G2 player Alfonso 'Mithy' Rodriguez in the support role, while in ADC we have Patrik 'Sheriff' Jiru from Czechia. Rounding off the team we have mid-laner Erlend 'Nukeduck' Holm, from Norway, while André Guilhoto is head coach and Fabian Broich is assistant coach.
General Manager of Origen, Martin 'Deficio' Lynge, said: "From the beginning, the strategy was to build a roster with tons of experience at the highest level combined with individual talent to compete for the top spots in EU. The five players have all shown the willingness to work within our RFRSH Performance Model which focuses on helping the players develop outside the game by providing tools and staff from professional sports and performance culture."
Origen will work in the Rfrsh HQ in Copenhagen, Denmark, having their own dedicated space next to Rfrsh's CS:GO team Astralis. For more on Rfrsh and what they're doing now though, take a look at our recent interview with CEO Nikolaj Nyholm.
Is this a good roster?
