Alliance Picks up Nyph Following his Departure From SK Gaming

It seems the roster shuffles are not over just yet for the LCS teams.

Alliance did extremely well in the Battle of the Atlantic, beating out Dignitas 2-0 with a Support who was trying out for the team, one Martin "Kazmitch" Hamalčík. Many speculated that he would be invited to stay on the team after this, and it seemed to be the case. That is, until today - when Froggen announced on his Twitter that Alliance had picked up Patrick "Nyph" Funke.

This comes mere hours after SK Gaming posted a vlog detailing Nyph's decision to leave SK Gaming, which you can check out here.

So that's yet another top talent added to the Alliance roster, presumably making them a force to be reckoned with when the European LCS kicks off on January 14th.
