xPeke to return to mid lane on new Origen roster, Wisdom and Tabzz join

Esports Asia News
[hkes_show_google_ad] Enrique “xPeke” Martinez will lead a completely new Origen roster in 2017, according to a report by ESPN’s Jacob Wolf. The new roster will reportedly include Max “Satorius” Günther in top lane, Kim “Wisdom” Tae-wan in jungle, Erik “Tabzz” van Helvert in the AD carry position and Aleksi “Hiiva” Kaikkonen as support, with xPeke returning to his original role as mid laner. The lineup marks a very different direction for Origen, which has lost four of its five 2016 players since the summer split. Though xPeke filled in as ADC in the summer split, he is famous for his skill in the mid lane, and was elected by fans to play as mid laner on Europe’s 2016 All Star team. After founding Origen in 2014, he played on the roster through the 2015 season and the 2015 World Championship, before retiring from play to act as coach and manager. Returning to play as a starter will mean he cannot act as manager, according to Riot’s LCS ruleset. Other veterans joining xPeke include Tabzz and Wisdom, who both have over five years’ experience in premier leagues. Tabzz made his debut as a part of Lemondogs, before moving to the Alliance roster that took a perfect game against Najin White Shield at the Season 4 World Championship. Wisdom jungled for Incredible Miracle in 2014-2015, and played as secondary jungler for ROX Tigers in the 2015 summer split and World Championship. Heading into 2016, he left the LCK and moved on to the EU LCS, playing for Giants Gaming in the 2016 spring split. In the summer, he was a vital part of the Misfits squad that qualified for the EU LCS, but was replaced in the offseason by KaKAO. This will be Satorius’ first appearance in the LCS, after playing for several seasons in the EU Challenger Series with Team LDLC and Inspire eSports/Epsilon eSports. Hiiva is another fresh face, having bounced between challenger and sub-challenger squads before securing a proper LCS debut. Origen’s 2016 squad included Paul “sOAZ” Boyer, Maurice “Amazing” Stückenschneider, Tristan “PowerOfEvil” Schrage and Glenn “Hybrid” Doornenbal. Hybrid left the team in August, while sOAZ and Amazing joined Fnatic in early December and PowerOfEvil joined Misfits a week later. [hkes_show_google_ad]
