Pridestalker’s rookie season will be spent playing for Roccat (Lolesports/Riot Games)

After qualifying for the LCS with Misfits Academy (now known as Mysterious Monkeys), jungler Milo “Pridestalker” Wehnes has been transferred to Team Roccat, the organization announced via Facebook Monday.

The jungle position is the one that Roccat will be replacing for the 2017 EU LCS Summer Split. Previous Roccat jungler Nubar “Maxlore” Safarian was recently signed to Misfits, replacing Lee “KaKAO” Byung-kwon.

The full Roccat roster is as follows:

  • Ambrož “Phaxi” Hren – Top
  • Milo “Pridestalker” Wehnes – Jungle
  • Felix “Betsy” Edling – Mid
  • Petter “Hjärnan” Freyschuss – AD carry
  • Kim “Wadid” Bae-in – Support

Roccat said in their announcement, “Pridestalker was our first choice, matching our philosophy of finding young players with a high ceiling. Like Wadid and Phaxi, we are confident that our coaching staff and core team will help him reach his full potential, elevating our game to the next level.”
