According to a press release on the Unicorns of Love website, the EU LCS team will be going with two ADC’s for the duration of the 2018 EU LCS Summer Split. Not only will they be going with Samuel “Samux” Fernández Fort, they’ll be entering Matúš “Neon” Jakubčík into the fold.
The release states that Samux has been dealing with some health issues and hasn’t been able to practice properly. ” Unfortunately Samux has been dealing with some serious health issues that lead up to him staying at the hospital a few times. In total he was staying in hospital for 3 weeks now so that the entire team couldn’t scrim and practice properly. Right now Samux is feeling better but it is still possible that he might have bad days the next weeks.”

The organization then explained why they signed a substitute ADC and said, “To prevent the team from losing important scrim time and releasing the pressure from Samux in the future we tried to find a solution. With the roaster lock coming in we then signed a substitute that will be able to jump in if needed so that everyone has the best outcome in this situation.”
Fabian “Sheepy” Mallant also spoke on the matter and said, “We have been practicing hard since the last 2 months. After finishing last in Spring, we wanted to make sure to win. However last month, Samux started growing stronger pain. He has a serious diseases that he has been fighting for a longer time. Resulting in 2 weeks of practice being missed due to staying at hospital, we decided to take in a substitute to relieve the pressure allowing Samux to recover and only play what his health allows. We decided to go for Neon. He has been fitting right in with the team with his positive mindset and friendly attitude. We are excited to go into Summer Split and show you guys how badly we want to win. Love and magic, UOL“
