FunPlus Phoenix have finally put an end to their search for an in-game leader, with Luka “emi” Vuković putting pen to paper on a contract with the Chinese organisation. 

FunPlus Phoenix have had difficulties finding an in-game leader after Kevin “kRYSTAL” Amend was deemed surplus to requirements and benched in November of last year. In a recent podcast by HLTV with FPX player Martin “STYKO” Styk, the Slovakian revealed they had their sights set on signing the former mousesports player Chris “chrisJ” De Jong as his replacement, a move that fell through during contract negotiations.

Instead, they have now signed emi, who had been standing in for the team in November after kRYSTAL’s benching. 

“I am thrilled to get an opportunity to play for such a big brand as FPX,” emi said in a statement to HLTV. “The atmosphere on TeamSpeak has been amazing and I am really looking forward to playing and competing with my new teammates.”

FunPlus Phoenix are now:
