UK esports organization Misfits Gaming has announced its starting lineup for the 2020 League of Legends European Championship (LEC) Season. This news comes shortly after former 100 Thieves jungler Maurice “Amazing” Stückenschneider joined Misfits Gaming in the strategic coach position and Aleksi “H1IVA” Kaikkonen departed from the roster.

Misfits Gaming into 2020

“Our focus for our 2020 LEC roster is rookies who have extremely exciting potential,” said Michael Bolze, General Manager of League of Legends at Misfits Gaming. “Combined with the efforts of our coaching staff and current Misfits players, this team can be molded to bring us back where we belong as a top contender in Europe.”

The roster consists of top laner Danny “Dan Dan” Le Comte, jungler Iván “Razork” Martín, mid laners Ronaldo “Ronaldooo” Betea and Fabian “Febiven” Diepstraten, AD carry Yeong-hoon “Bvoy” Ju, and support Petr “denyk” Haramach. Ronaldo joins from Academy team Fnatic Rising, Bvoy from Latin American team Furious Gaming, and Razork and Denyk both from now-disbanded organization Giants Gaming.

Poor LEC results in 2019

Combining multiple rookies with a few veterans in the scene, Misfits Gaming hopes to grow and nurture the team during the 2020 League of Legends season. The past season was even worse than the team’s results during the previous 2018 season. They saw an 8th place finish to start off the 2019 LEC Spring Split. The team later placed second to last during the LEC Summer Split, a far cry from the 2017 season where it made a World Championships appearance.

The only difference in the roster between the 2017 to 2018 seasons was the change in mid lane and support. Misfits Gaming hopes another roster iteration will help it against the high skill level competition in the European scene. What do you think about Misfits Gaming’s chances in 2020?
