BIOGRAPHY

The only Romanian to ever grace the highest competitive League of Legends echelon, Andrei started his journey as any other highly skilled EUW player – solo queue. Rising rapidly through the ranks in Seasons 2 and 3, he began playing in the challenger scene and eventually became part of Cloud 9 Eclipse. Proving himself to be an LCS calibre top laner, our “wall in the North” joined H2K and qualified for Europe’s number one league. Since then, Odoamne has always been in the talks about the elite top laners hailing from Europe.

TRIVIA

His nickname comes from the Romanian phrase "O, Doamne!" which translates to "Oh my God!".
While playing the Challenger Series, some people mistook him for TheOddOne, writing things in Twitch Chat like "Oddone in EU?"

BIOGRAPHY

Starting his journey in solo queue, no one knew the tremendous potential that hid in Fabian. The Dutch was first recognized in Season 3 and the moment Season 4 hit, everyone knew he wasn't going to stop until he got into the LCS. Relentlessly crushing every opposing team in the Challenger Series, Febiven and H2K qualified for the LCS with all eyes on our mid laner. Two years later, Fabian is back home with the H2K Family where it all started, but now as an experienced star - one who has been in playoffs, finals and most importantly, Worlds.

TRIVIA

His name is a combination of Fabian and Riven with a small change in the second letter to sound "cooler".
Ironically, the only team to deny Febiven a Worlds spot was H2K.
Initially starting as an assassin player, Febiven is now known as an all-rounder with excellent micro mechanics.
Only Western player to solo kill Faker in an official match.

BIOGRAPHY

Shin “Nuclear” Jung-hyun is the youngest member of our new line-up. Described by his Korean compatriots as a diamond in the rough, the AD Carry had to fight his way through the lower end of the LCK on multiple occasions. The youngster has proven to have what it takes to play against the absolute best as he beat ROX Tigers and took a game off SKT in last year's KeSPA cup. Now, Shin has made a brave choice to step away from home and play in Europe together with the H2K Family. We have the utmost confidence in Nuclear and believe in his talents, mindset and character.

He and his former support in SBENU - Wadid, will meet in the EU LCS as the latter is now in ROCCAT.

H2K (Hard to Kill) belongs to a small group of early esports organizations that contracted professional players before the live-streaming revolution. Since 2003, we have built pro-teams and racked up trophies in games such as League of Legends, Counter-Strike and Call of Duty, to name a few.

Our League of Legends team has been among the most consistent and successful teams in the World. For three consecutive years, we have finished in the top three in the European LCS. In 2016, H2K was the only Western team to reach the semi-finals of the World Championship held at Madison Square Garden in NY City after emerging as the number 1 seed from its group in San Francisco and winning its quarter final match in Chicago.

Today, we boast a board and management team to rival the best in the industry. Our CEO was the former CFO for Kanye West's West Brands while our Board members range from a former founding partner at a prestigious law firm to a Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship. Together with a management team comprised of esports veterans, H2K seeks to be the world's best esports franchise both inside and out of the games we compete in.

H2K is proud of its commitment to our talent; providing competitive salaries, best in class living conditions and a dedicated creative media team for our committed pro-players. Supported by some of the most engaged and loyal fans in the games we play makes H2K one of the fastest growing organizations in esports.

Unlike traditional major league sport teams, esport teams do not generally have mature veteran players or coaches to give guidance to the younger players. H2K recognizes this and believes it has a special responsibility to provide the young players, who are away from home, with the support system they need to grow emotionally so they are comfortable with both themselves and the outside world.
