The Astralis Group has revealed the Origen roster for 2020, that will compete in the League of Legends European Championship (LEC), with the team already reaching the finals this past season.
Barney 'Alphari' Morris, Andre 'Xerxe' Dragomir, Erlend 'Nukeduck' Holm. Elias 'Upset' Lipp, and Mitchell 'Destiny' Shaw are on the team, and here's what director of sports Kasper Hvidt had to say about the lineup:
"As an organization we have learned a lot from our first season. Some things we did really well and while we are not completely satisfied with the end result, we pulled off a strong Spring Split and have come far in implementing our overall performance model. The players all worked hard and I have nothing but respect for the two guys leaving us. Each of them are extremely talented professionals, but in our analysis of our first season, we have defined areas where we needed to improve - as an organization and as a team, Hvidt explains."
"This roster and our set-up, where Martin "Deficio" Lynge will be working closer with the team, coach and analyst, is one result of our conclusions, and we enter the 2020 season with a very strong belief in ourselves."
The roster also included Alfonso 'Mithy' Aguirre Rodríguez in 2019, but according to a recent report, he's set to retire and become coach of Fnatic.
Is this a good Origen side?
