A year ago, the departure of Paul “sOAZ” Boyer from Fnatic and the transfer to Misfits Gaming was quite surprising. This year, however, other information about the Frenchman stirred up, this time saying that next year he will fight for the North American championship. However, they were reflected in reality – today sOAZ was officially presented as an Immortals player and next year we will see him in the League of Legends Championship Series.
For the 25-year-old it will be a debut in the league across the Atlantic – so far we have only had the opportunity to watch him in the fight for the leading European trophy. During his adventure on the Old Continent he won four championship titles – by the way all under the Fnatic flag – and stood on the podium nine times. If it hadn’t been for the unfortunate injury in 2018, maybe his case would have been even more impressive, but he still can’t complain about the lack of achievements. Not only that, sOAZ was the last player whose actions we could watch in the League of Legends European Championship, and who also fought during the first split of EU LCS in 2013. Expanding this range to the entire 2013 season, now the only such player is Erlend “Nukeduck” Holm.
Where one door closes, others open. Now before sOAZ a new challenge in a completely new environment. Interestingly, he is not the only French in the ranks of Immortals – Jérémy “Eika” Valdenaire will play in the middle avenue, while Thomas “Zaboutine” Si-Hassen will be the head coach. In addition to two players from the Seine, the starting five of the IMT will also be Jake “Xmithie” Puchero, Johnny “Altec” Ru and Nickolas “Hakuho” Surgent.
