Everyone is aware of G2 Esports’ shock acquisition of Rasmus “Caps” Winther before the start of the 2019 LEC Spring Split, but some may be unfamiliar with the prequel. In the break between the 2016 Spring and Summer Splits, G2 snatched away Origen’s dominant bottom lane duo of Zven and Mithy after their impressive performances at Worlds and in the EU LCS Playoffs. While at G2, the pair won three consecutive EU LCS trophies in 2016 and 2017, but ultimately fell short at both World Championships.

As a result, Team SoloMid thought it was their turn to try out the dynamic duo and picked them up for 2018. While they may have acquired the best bottom lane in the West, it didn’t help them out when it came to results, and in fact the team failed to reach either playoff final or qualify for Worlds for the first time in the org’s history. Therefore, changes had to be made, and it came in the form of splitting up the previously inseparable bottom lane, a duo that had played together in every competitive game since mid-2014.

Zven remained with TSM for the 2019 Spring Split and will take to the stage with his team this weekend to face off against Team Liquid for a chance to be crowned LCS champions. Meanwhile, Mithy travelled back to Europe to re-join his former team, Origen, and will also be taking part in the finals weekend, with the possibility of winning the first ever LEC Playoffs.

Coach: Titus “LeDuck” Hafner (currently a free agent)

Perhaps an underrated member of the excellent 2015 Origen line-up, LeDuck steered his team to both a playoff final and Worlds top four within six months of being promoted to the EU LCS. Since then, he’s been coaching teams around Europe, mainly those in regional leagues. The German coach made moves to Inspire eSports and Millenium before making a return to Origen, in a desperate attempt to save the team from relegation that unfortunately failed.

From there, LeDuck has since coached the Spanish ASUS ROG Army, and most recently the Movistar Riders, under the management of his 2015 opposition coach, Deilor. However, due to the side failing to reach the SuperLiga Orange playoffs in Spring, LeDuck has since left his role at Movistar and is now a free agent.

The 2015 EU LCS Summer Split final between Fnatic and Origen involved some of the best League of Legends players Europe has ever seen. The question is – will Saturday’s match-up deliver the same level of hype and will this new set of players go down in the history books alongside these former greats?
