North American League of Legends team 100 Thieves has revealed a new signing in time for the summer split, as Maurice “Amazing” Stückenschneider has been recruited as a jungler for the team, having played competitively in both North America and Europe already in his career.
Amazing has played in two World Championships, with experience in teams like Fnatic in the past, and 100 Thieves needed a change after finishing bottom of the spring split with a 4-14 record, falling way short of their performances in 2018.
Amazing started his League of Legends career back in 2012. As one of the oldest active players in the scene, he has played for several decorated teams such as Team SoloMid, Origen, Fnatic, and FC Schalke 04. In the most recent season, he managed Schalke Evolution, the academy team of FC Schalke 04 Esports.
Along with announcing Amazing as their starting jungler, 100 Thieves confirmed their starting roster, with Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho at top, Max “Soligo” Soong at mid, Bang at bot, and Zaqueri “Aphromoo” Black at support.
