League of Legends: Schalke Sign Gilius as LEC Jungler for 2020

Erberk “Gilius” Demir is the final player to join the Schalke 04 LEC roster for 2020. Gilius’ signing also marks the final signing of the offseason for LEC and LCS sides, pending approvals and confirmations.

Gilius most recently played for the German esports organization Ad Hoc Gaming but the 22-year-old has had a storied career in professional League of Legends. He's had stints at Giants, Vitality, G2 (back when it was still Gamers2) two spells at Unicorns of Love and a previous split with Schalke 04 back in 2016.

Tim Reichert, Chief Gaming Officer of the Royal Blues (Schalke 04), had this to say:

“We followed the development of Gilius with great interest and found that he made significant progress, especially last year. We want to build on this and further support him in his development. We are convinced that he has the potential to hold his own in the LEC. With Lukas “Lurox” Thoma (Schalke Academy), another player is waiting for his chance to advance to the LEC roster. The competition will have a positive effect on the development of both players.”

Gilius will join fellow new FC Schalke 04 signing Han “Dreams” Min-kook and FORG1VEN, who Schalke picked up after his military service.

With the signing of Gilius, Schalke will operate a lineup of:

Top – Odoamne

Jungle – Gilius

Mid – Abbedagge

Support – Dreams

So far, Schalke's roster is looking quite solid. They've resigned Odoamne, who was a major player last year, and now have an interesting bottom lane in Dreams and FORG1VEN. With the experience that Gilius offers the side alongside Abbedagge, Schalke could well be a team to watch in 2020.
