Excel Esports adds Mikyx to LEC roster

Excel Esports announced the addition of Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle to its League of Legends European Championship roster on Tuesday.

Mikyx, 23, brings a wealth of experience to the roster as a four-time LEC title winner along with winning the 2019 Mid-Season Invitational. He comes to Excel after more than three years with G2 Esports following stints with Fnatic, Splyce and Misfits.

Mikyx replaces Henk “Advienne” Reijenga, who is being allowed to explore “the best possible fit for his competitive development,” the team said in a statement.

Along with Mikyx, Excel’s roster includes Finn “Finn” Wiestal, Mark “Markoon” van Woensel, Erlend “Nukeduck” Vatevik Holm and Patrik “Patrik” Jiru.

“We have big ambitions for this year and making sure we have the best possible line-up of players who have synergy and work well together as a unit is a top priority,” said Excel esports director Tim Reichert. “When the unique opportunity arose for Mikyx to join us here at EXCEL it was a decision we were ready to make.

“We have a long season ahead of us and it is important that we make decisions with one goal in mind, challenging the best of the best for a top three spot.”

Pending Riot approval, Mikyx will debut for Excel this weekend against MAD Lions and Astralis.
