Tristan “PowerOfEvil” Schrage satisfied what looked like a personal Vendetta on both Paul “sOAZ” Boyer and Maurice “Amazing” Stückenschneider, his former teammates from a disastrous previous season on Origen. Playing under the OG banner, each player left the squad after a relegation struggle pointing the finger in the opposite direction. As the trio reunited for the first time, PowerOfEvil left the stage having taken his vengeance, gunning down the Fnatic Top laner and Jungler as Misfits secured a pivotal victory.
With sOAZ and Amazing looking to revitalise their careers as part of an all-European Fnatic roster and PowerOfEvil looking to bolster the newly promoted Misfits organisation, it initially appeared that sOAZ and Amazing had emerged from the Origen collapse without even needing to sweep the debris dust from their shoulders.
Yet this dramatic edition of the EU LCS has proven otherwise, with Misfits surpassing expectations to sit comfortably 3-1 in the standings, Fnatic on the other hand languishing 1-2. The matchup between the two sides provided the perfect opportunity for PowerOfEvil to demonstrate his capabilities once more, redirecting any of the criticism levied against him for Origen’s demise. With formidable 7-1 and 10-2 stats on Corki, he certainly proved his worth and took sweet revenge over his former teammates.
Amazing has been playing below par for a while now and the series against Misfits certainly did nothing to help his cause. With some major mistakes and a questionable build, he did not help Fnatic on the Rift, it’s almost as if the cricitism aimed towards PowerOfEvil should have been aimed elsewhere all along? At long last the community is now beginning to question whether Amazing and sOAZ should retire from the League of Legends competitive scene.
“We utilize me way better in Misfits than we did in Origen.
“I think everyone gets along way better, the environment is really good, the atmosphere is really good, every team mate enjoys playing with each other.
“I think its important to fun in the scrims and fun on stage and not mind mistakes or failures”

Undoubtedly, PowerOfEvil must be feeling satisfied after gunning down sOAZ and Amazing. Post match, the Mid laner explicitly referenced his delight at facing his old teammates on the rift:
I am happy about our 2-0 this week and my teams performance.
It was fun meeting my old teammates on the rift too

If there’s one thing the EU LCS needs more of, it’s gripping storylines: Tristan “PowerOfEvil” Schrage’s search for redemption provides just that… making this tweet from Amazing all the more satisfying:
Is anyone else feeling like there is a lack of actual storylines in the EULCS? There has to be more to really drag the fans into it with.

Misfits can look forward to one more meeting with the underperforming Fnatic this season, plus possible playoff games for PoE to crush his ex-teammates once more.
