Schalke will be disappointed, but not disheartened at their 9-10 record during the regular season. While their target before the spring split would have certainly been to reach playoffs, a number of unfortunate results towards the second half of the regular season saw them slip from second to a 6th place decider.

Bringing in a fresh face could be exactly what the team needs to get back on track and challenge for a spot at Worlds in the summer split and there are few better fresh faces to sign for your roster than a four-time EU LCS champion. Trick returns to the European scene following disappointing spells at Korea’s bbq Olivers and Turkey’s Galakticos and will be challenging Memento for the starting position in the jungle.

SK Gaming

Reaching playoffs in the first split with a relatively inexperienced roster was an impressive feat for SK Gaming, but they’ll want to go one further and push for Worlds qualification in summer. The line-up has had time to gel together and put on some fantastic performances towards the end of the regular season, unfortunately ending with a 3-1 loss to Splyce in playoffs.

Therefore the coaching staff feel that only one small change was necessary during the break – promoting Sacre to the main roster to contend with Werlyb for the starting spot, following SK Gaming Prime’s performance in regional competitions and EU Masters.
