Former Fnatic player Fabien "Febiven" Diepstraten has signed for H2K, pending Riot’s approval.
Febiven has replaced former H2K player Yoo "Ryu" Sang-wook, who was part of the team that made it to the semifinals of the World Championships.
The news was announced on The Bridge, the daily three hour talk show from Ginx TV, moments after Fnatic announced its new roster.
“So first off all it’s very saddening to me to leave FNC, because they are a really great organisation with wonderful people inside,” said Febiven in his blog post. “I felt like I needed to change my environment to evolve as a player and h2k is an org that I already know and like and the roster is pretty stacked. My time in FNC was wonderful and I have only good things to say about those 2 years.”
“My ultimate goal is to get back to worlds and actually win it which I think is very possible, because I really think personally I can become the best if I work my hardest. The reason I think I can become the best is, because in 2015 I was lucky to be able to play at worlds with my team and alot of good mid laners showed me my weaknesses which I'm very grateful for. And also throughout 2016 in FNC I have experienced so much stuff that helped me grow. This means I will come back stronger because of that. And also with the roster/staff we currently have in H2k is really stacked and has a lot of potential all together.”
