Misfits support player Mihael ‘Mikyx’ Mehle has reportedly accepted a deal to join G2 Esports for the 2019 LEC season, according to reports from VPEsports and ESPN.

After a rollercoaster 2018 with Misfits, it appears that Mikyx’s standout individual performances have attracted the attention of LEC rivals, ahead of the first spring split of the newly franchised European league.

ESPN’s Jacob Wolf first reported on G2’s interest in the Slovenian support player on November 20, as his contract with Misfits expired on Monday, November 19.

On November 24, VPEsports claim that Mikyx has agreed to the move according to sources, which ESPN later confirmed.

The engage support player is expected to replace Kim ‘Wadid’ Bae-In in a similar role, with the Korean’s next move unclear.

Mikyx found success with the Fnatic team in 2016, winning the European qualifier for the World Championship, and despite a poor performance at Worlds, has been on the radar of G2 for sometime.

Misfits already secured top laner Paul ‘sOAZ’ Boyer from Fnatic and Clutch Gaming mid-laner Fabian ‘Febiven’ Diepstraten, and confirmed the signing of support Kang ‘GorillA’ Beom-hyeon to round out the roster.

ESPN report that G2 have already further bolstered their lineup with the addition of mid laner Rasmus ‘Caps’ Winther from Fnatic.

The Spring split of the first LEC season begins on January 19, 2019, where the top European teams will be able to put their new rosters to the test.

Seraphine has been a hit in the League of Legends fandom, serenading millions as part of K/DA, as well as a solo artist. Few have managed to capture the Zaun and Piltovan artist’s essence as well as Brazilian cosplayer ‘kitsuneraposa’.

Seraphine might be one of the newest additions to League of Legends, but the popstar has already made it big. The support / mid laner has been a hit with fans, thanks to her @seradotwav Twitter account and K/DA collaboration on release.

Her story is the ultimate rags to riches one, and many fans have resonated with that. It also helps that she makes some pretty good music too.

Seraphine has become an iconic part of the Riot musical universe.

It’s made her a fan-favorite from well before she was even released, with many lining up to do casual cosplays of the League star. However, this one of her K/DA skin by ‘kitsuneraposa’ is one of the most decked out ones we’ve seen yet.

Raposa took on Seraphine’s ALL OUT design ⁠— stage and all ⁠— in their cosplay. No expense was spared, and it shows. From the wig all the way down to the platform, everything is absolutely picture perfect.

Raposa was actually brought on by Riot Brazil to do the cosplay, and said her experience was just like Seraphine’s growth.

“Everything worked out in the end and the result was stunning. I ended up identifying myself as [Seraphine], and like her, I lived the dream of being part of K/DA for a day,” they said on Instagram.

While Raposa is more known for her Ahri cosplays in the community ⁠— after all, Kitsune is in her name ⁠— her Seraphine one is easily her best work yet.

From the stunning metallic dress, to the crystal powered stage and microphone, every detail was meticulously combed over.

Her cosplay has won the world over, much like Seraphine herself did, and it’s for good reason. It’ll be hard to top this one for some time, and it’ll be one many cosplayers come back to so they too can transform into the Piltovan star.
