“I see playing in an already such established roster as an incredible privilege, but I’m mindful that I must be quick to adapt and not fall behind this team!”
Following a big announcement through twitter yesterday, European organization Fnatic finally announced their new mid laner, Tim ‘Nemesis’ Lipovšek. Through the team’s history, they have been notorious for acquiring young talent. Some examples include previous mid laner, Caps, current jungler, Broxah, and rookie of the split top laner, Bwipo. Due to their ability to see potential in young players, Fnatic have performed strongly through the past few years domestically and internationally.
Nemesis is a 19-year old Slovenian coming fresh from EU Masters. Through his strong play in the master series, he was able to turn the heads of many teams. During his time on MAD Lions, they won 2018 LVP SuperLiga as well as the 2018 summer championships.
The Fnatic article quotes:
“Building up talent may take time and always comes with risk. But I believe Fnatic provides their players the perfect platform to become stars: we have the most tools and the friendliest, hardest-working teammates that Europe has to offer. We look forward to showing exactly that once again in the upcoming season!” – Joey ‘YoungBuck’ Steltenpool, Fnatic League of Legends Team Director
