The mid-season break has just got underway but we’re already deep in preparations for the coming split!
Those last few weeks of spring were a complete rollercoaster, but it just showed how close we are to the LCS summit. It was the motivation the boys needed and now they’re hungrier than ever to improve.
“We proved to ourselves that we have what it takes to be at the top of Europe, and having a boot-camp in Korea would go a long way to achieving this.“ - Finlay ‘Quaye’ Stewart
The team’s already on the plane to Seoul. They’re going to enjoy the highest quality working conditions, and the most competitive server around the globe, so it’s ideal for the team to train and raise their game for summer.
We’re going to use the opportunity as well to try out some new coaching talent. Finlay’s been doing a great job since he stepped in as interim, but when we come back in June our infrastructure needs to be set for our run at qualifying for Worlds. We’re going to be trialling several options to make sure the team find their best fit, with one of Fnatic’s Seoul based managers lending his assistance. Meanwhile, Finlay will stay grounded in Europe to focus on preparing for the coming split - and so will Rekkles.
“Rekkles has had a really rough split, dealing with a lot of personal issues. He decided that it was best to take some extra time to recover and come back stronger in Summer.” - Finlay ‘Quaye’ Stewart
Taking his seat on the plane instead will be MrRallez. He’s had an awesome split with the Challenger Series roster, so we’re pumped for him to be coming to support the main squad!
