Eika has made his rounds throughout the span of his five year career in League of Legends, as he first made his major league debut as the starting mid later for Elements during the 2016 EU LCS Spring Split, despite being sub on Unicorns of Love in 2015.
Eika also played for G2 Esports before the team was promoted to the EU LCS and has also played for Team LDLC since the start of 2017, leading the European roster to the European Masters series, which ended in a shared fifth place in both Spring and Summer, as well as a series of first place titles during the 2019 LFL season.
Immortals rejoined the North American League of Legends region after their acquisition of the parent company of OpTic Gaming, Infinite Esports and Entertainment, in June of this year.
The team has also re-signed Jake “Xmithie” Puchero to maintain his jungle role for Immortals and, according to ESPN, is currently looking to sign Paul “sOAZ” Boyer, Johnny “Altec” Ru, and Nickolas “Hakuho” Surgent.
The moves will be made possible after the team agreed to buyout Lee “Crown” Min-ho from his contract with the team as he joins CLG for the 2020 LCS season. The team will also be retaining OpTic’s head coaches for its LCS teams, as well as its Academy teams with Thomas “Zaboutine” Si-Hassen and Kublai “Kubz” Barlas.
The amount of veterans on the roster will prove to extremely beneficial for the team heading into the new season.
