H2k Gaming’s Sheriff unable to play in today’s matches due to personal loss
H2k Gaming’s bot laner, Patrik “Sheriff” Jírů, will not be able to play in today’s European LCS matches due to a personal loss, as announced by the team on Twitter this morning. In his place, Jungler Ilyas “Shook” Hartsema will be playing, according to EU LCS host Eefje “Sjokz” Depoortere during the broadcast. Additionally, the team’s mid laner, Marcin “Selfie” Wolski, will be returning after missing two weeks due to illness.
Sheriff’s absence and the team’s struggles in the Summer Split
Sheriff played a significant role in the team’s playoff run in the spring, helping them reach the quarterfinals. However, changes in the meta during the Summer Split led to a losing streak for the team. Sheriff, known for his marksmen playstyle, was particularly affected as his champions were no longer popular in the current meta.
H2k went on a 13-game losing streak before finally securing a victory against Splyce last week. During that game, Selfie was absent and rookie Emil “Larssen” Larsson filled in. Larssen brought a fresh perspective to a team that had been struggling throughout the split.
Shook’s role and upcoming match against Misfits Gaming
Now, Shook will have the task of making a similar impact. The former star jungler played a crucial role in turning the team’s performance around during the spring, but has struggled to make a significant difference in the summer. H2k will be facing Misfits Gaming, one of the league’s top teams, today at 12pm CT.
