Fnatic’s substitute mid laner Felix “MagiFelix” Bostrom has reached Challenger in League of Legends’ solo queue playing on five different accounts across the game’s five different roles.

The 20-year-old has registered a new record since no other person has done this feat before.

He began his competitive career in 2016 when he was only 16 playing for EURONICS Gaming. He swapped teams every split and landed on Fnatic’s Academy roster in January 2019.

While he played under the Youthcrew Esports organization, he became notorious for having five different mid lane accounts in the top 20 on the European West server.

More players have been challenging themselves to reach Challenger on other roles. A recent bet in the North American region made a lot of noise between popular streamers Nightblue3 and Tyler1. The idea behind the challenge was that if a player has reached the Challenger status on one role, they can easily learn the characteristics of other roles and apply all their macro and micro knowledge to get Challenger on other roles as well.

MagiFelix made his debut in LEC in 2019 where he played one match after Rekkles was benched and Nemesis swapped to the ADC role. While he has never returned to the LEC scene, his impressive solo queue feat may land him more opportunities in the upcoming future.

MagiFelix, on the other hand, is a mid laner from Fnatic’s Academy team. He helped Fnatic Rising win the Forge of Champions 2019 Spring Main Event, with the team taking down Diabolus Esports. The 19-year-old moved into the mid lane while Tim “Nemesis” Lipovšek will be headed to the bottom lane.

This change didnt’t make much sense to many people, especially with how successful Fnatic was thens. Even though they’re coming off of their first loss of the split against Splyce was acquired by Fnatic, they have still looked like one of the best teams in the region.

Fnatic’s recent slump could be an opportunity for MagiFelix to be back on the main roster. With recent rumors surrounding the scene and the recent support change from Origen, this could set a path for more changes as teams look to secure a good position heading into the World Championship.

Stay tuned for more roster changes in the upcoming weeks as teams look into improving their standings and secure better seeding going into the World Championship. Fnatic is notorious for playing with the same mid lane for only two years, so this could be a bad sign for Nemesis.
