One of the rumors that we have heard a lot during this year’s ‘Free Agency’ season is that Sergen ‘Broken Blade‘ Çelik, after two years playing under the TSM colors and becoming with them the Champion of the LCS, could cross the Ocean to join a LEC team.
This information was provided by ‘LEC Wooloo‘, and week after week the rumor about ‘Broken Blade’ joining Schalke 04 got stronger… and finally came true.
It was not very difficult to imagine that this would happen since, according to several sources, the German team has been interested in ‘Broken Blade’ for a very long time. Plus, the player is supposed to have a very good relationship with Felix ‘Abbedagge‘ Braun and Erberk ‘Gilius‘ Demir, mid and jungler for Schalke 04.
So finally, the team itself confirmed the acquisition of their brand new top laner a few hours ago:
OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: How broken is our new Toplaner?@TSMBrokenBlade is coming to Schalke 04 Esports!* After conquering the #LCS, we’re very excited to finally see you in the #LEC. Let’s go to Worlds! #S04WIN

With this movement, Schalke 04 keeps building its roster around Gilius and Abbedagge, and after having confirmed the acquisition of Broken Blade for the top lane and Dino ‘LIMIT‘ Tot for the Support position, only the ADC is not a certainty yet.
