One of the newest League of Legends European Championship (LEC) teams, exceL, have added a three-time European Champion to their roster.

exceL, who were recently accepted into the newly-rebranded LEC, have quietly built a roster consisting of players with plenty of experience in the European scene.

Marc ‘Caedral’ Robert Lamont, formerly of H2K Gaming and Team LDLC, joined as their Jungler. Raymond ‘kaSing’ Tsang, formerly of Splyce, joined the team as their support. They also added former Movistar Riders player Jesper ‘Jekla’ Klarin Strömberg as their Bot Laner.

Now, they have added more experience to their roster with the signing of Ki ‘Expect’ Dae-han. Expect, a three-time European Champion and former MSI runner-up joins the team after spending the recent Worlds cycle as a substitute for Fnatic.

The former G2 Esports Top Laner has spent time on and off the sidelines over the last two years, last playing in the EU LCS – now LEC – during the 2017 Summer Split.

Riot GamesExpect has plenty of experience in the European scene.

He last played with Origen at an ESL European Masters event. Playing with Henrik ‘Froggen’ Hansen – recently signed by NA LCS team Golden Guardians – Choi ‘inSec’ In-seok, Jesse ‘Jesiz’ Le and Konstantinos-Napoleon ‘FORG1VEN’ Tzortziou, Expect and his squad took home first place.

exceL are expected to announce their 10-man roster over the next few days as preparations for the start of the LEC Spring Split – which is set to kick-off in January – ramp up.

Riot dev responds to broken League damage bug with Ravenous Hydra

A Riot Games developer has responded to a bizarre bug in League of Legends, which is preventing the Ravenous Hydra from working with certain champions’ abilities in-game.

Riot Games introduced plenty of changes in the 2021 preseason patch such as completely revamping the League Item Shop and items to improve the game’s experience before Season 11 kicks off.

Ravenous Hydra is one of the items that has remained in League, but it received some updated stats amid the changes. The item still provides players with lifesteal, in the form of Omnivamp, but Riot has now removed the Crescent Active and added 20 Ability Haste in its place.

However, one thing that has not changed much is the item’s passive ability Cleave, which allows basic attacks and abilities to trigger extra damage, which varies based on the distance between targets.

Urgot's splash artLeague players called for a Ravenous Hydra fix after a glitch was found with champions like Urgot.

There are some champions with abilities that had unique interactions with this item, such as Aphelios’ Severum Q, but players have now noticed a bug, which stops it from working correctly with certain champions.

The issue was raised with League dev Riot Phlox, with one Redditor explaining that champions with multi-hit abilities, like Urgots W, Renekton W, and Warwick’s Ult seem to be where the problem lies.

Riot Phlox responded to the bug, revealing that they are now aware of the unusual damage glitch with Ravenous Hydra and that it would be passed on to the League Dev team.

“I’ll pass this along so we can make sure there are eyes on it, thanks!” the League dev responded, confirming they would soon be working on it.

However, he also revealed that he was unsure just when a fix might be issued for this broken damage bug, adding that they “can’t give a timeframe.”

While it is unclear when the patch will arrive in League of Legends, this will still come as good news to Urgot mains, and those who play similar champs, after they were quite vocal on this issue, as it will soon allow them to have more build options in-game.
