SK Gaming looks set to make some big changes to their roster after missing out on Worlds in 2020.
SK Gaming is looking to the rookies for 2021 as they sign former Misfits Premier bot laner Jean “Jezu” Massol, LDLC jungler Kristian “TynX” Hansen, and exciting mid lane prospect Ersin “Blue” Gören from 1907 Fenerbahçe. All three are considered some of the most exciting prospects in Europe. They will look to improve on a disappointing year for SK Gaming.
These signings mean that current SK Gaming players Juš “Crownshot” Marušič, mid laner Dirk “ZaZee” Mallner, and jungler Kim “Trick” Gang-yun will be looking for new homes for the 2021 season with all three out of contract.
Being the mid laner, Blue is the standout player. Rumored and linked to a number of teams in the LEC and LCS, Blue was promoted from the Fenerbahçe Academy in May. He has been a key player for them in the months since.
TynX was a French LFL champion for the 2020 Spring Split and took the Spring European Masters event that followed. Jezu, who also plays in the French LFL for Misfits Premier finished third in both Spring and Summer Splits. He was part of the roster than defeated GamersOrigen 3-0 in the LFL 2020 Finals.
The three will join an SK Gaming side looking to improve their fortune in 2021. The full roster is yet to be confirmed. Only Janik “Jenax” Bartels is expected to stay with the roster.
