Excel Esports has signed Petter "Hjarnan" Freschuss as their bot laner for the summer split of the 2019 League of Legends European Championship.
Excel Esports is a British team that rose to prominence in League of Legends as one of the founding teams of the franchised LEC. They had a disappointing spring split, finishing 9th with a 5-13 record.
Hjarnan is a veteran bot laner who is most known from his time on H2K Gaming, Team Vitality, Team ROCCAT and most recently G2 Esports, the team with which he reached the semifinals of the 2018 World Championship. After parting ways with G2 Esports, Hjarnan joined Ad Hoc Gaming to compete in the spring split of the ESL Meisterschaft, where they finished in the semifinals.
On Excel Esports, Hjarnan reunites with Raymond "kaSing" Tsang as the bot lane duo from H2K Gaming and Team Vitality. The addition of a proven bot lane talent who is a steady hand on AD Carries as well as off-meta picks, most famously Heimerginder, will help strengthen Excel Esports to reach playoffs in the summer split.
The current roster for Excel Esports is:
- Top Laner: Dae-han "Expect" Ki
- Junger: Marc "Caedrel" Robert Lamont
- Mid Laner: Fabian "Exile" Schubert
- Bot Laner: Petter "Hjarnan" Fresychuss
- Support: Raymond "kaSing" Tsang
