Fnatic, one of the prominent teams in the League of Legends EMEA Championship 2023 Season Finals, has announced that their top laner, Óscar “Oscarinin” Muñoz, has suffered a hand injury. As a result, Martin “Wunder” Hansen, who had previously been benched, will be substituting for the injured player. Despite this setback, Fnatic managed to secure a place in Worlds 2023.
Wunder made a remarkable comeback to competitive play on September 2nd after being sidelined for nearly seven months. In his first competitive series back, Fnatic defeated Team BDS with a score of 3-2. Although he had limited practice time with his teammates, Wunder's experience and skill helped him adapt to the current meta.
It was unexpected for Wunder to be playing competitively this year, but Fnatic reached out to him after Oscarinin's injury. Wunder agreed to step in and help the team, stating that he would do his best to prepare for the playoff meta.
Fnatic's journey to the LEC Season Finals 2023 was challenging, as they faced ups and downs throughout the year, finishing ninth in the Winter Split and eighth in the Spring Split. However, their perseverance paid off, securing them a spot in the finals and a chance to compete in Worlds 2023.
The LEC Season Finals 2023 is the culmination of the 2023 LEC season. The top six teams from the competitive season were selected to compete in a double elimination bracket. The top three teams will qualify for Worlds 2023, while the fourth-placed team will enter the Worlds 2023 Qualifying Series against a North American team.
Fans can catch the intense showdown between Fnatic and MAD Lions today at 6 pm CET on the official LEC Twitch channel.
