The king is back in the LEC. Sort of.
The lord of EU West solo queue himself, Carl Felix “MagiFelix” Boström, has joined Misfits Gaming as a multi-role substitute ahead of the LEC playoffs, the org announced today.
This is the first time MagiFelix has signed with a team since he left Astralis in September last year.
Misfits Gaming sign MagiFelix as multi-role substitute
“With playoffs right around the corner, we decided to sign a multi-role substitute for both LEC and LFL in case of emergency,” the org said in the announcement.
Although he’s been competing professionally in the mid lane, the 22-year-old Swede is a known jack of all trades in solo queue, having reached Challenger in all five roles.
He almost reached 2000 LP, which would have set a new record on Riot’s solo queue ladder, but fell short at 1988 LP. MagiFelix last played for Astralis in the LEC, but had not joined a team in 2022 until now.
They are currently in third place in the LEC Spring Split 2022 with a 10-5 record, behind Rogue and Fnatic, and will next play against Astralis on March 6, 2 a.m. GMT+8 | March 5, 10 a.m. PST | March 5, 6 p.m. GMT. Catch them live on the LEC Twitch and YouTube streams.
