As our inaugural split as a member of the North American League of Legends Champion Series (LCS) creeps around the corner, we are pleased to finally announce the acquisition of European AD carry Aleš “Freeze” Kněžínek.

The newest Renegade, who has been around the professional scene since 2012, spent this past season in the European LCS as a member of the Copenhagen Wolves. While leading CW to the quarterfinals of the 2015 Spring Split playoffs, Freeze became recognized as one of the top marksman in the region, gaining additional praise for his highlights on exciting champions such as Kalista and Draven.

“I always wanted to try playing in NA since it’s something completely new,” says Freeze on why he pursued the opportunity to play in NA. “New culture, new country, new players to defeat and dominate.”

Freeze joined our team in Korea for six weeks for our offseason boot camp, taking the opportunity to gel with the team and prepare for the upcoming split.

He added: “Renegades seemed very friendly to me and I know Alex and Crumbz very well which I feel like will help me with the transfer.”

The addition of Freeze will complete our roster with four returning faces from our LCS qualification in August: top laner Oleksii “RF Legendary” Kuziuta, jungler Alberto “Crumbz” Rengifo, mid laner Alexey “Alex Ich” Ichetovkin and support player Maria “Remilia” Creveling.

The NA LCS returns on Saturday, Jan. 16, with Renegades scheduled to face off against Team Liquid at 3:00 PM PST. While you cheer along your favorite Renegades, why not put some of them together and win some cash at Alphadraft?
