Team SoloMid has announced the acquisition of ADC main Kasper “Kobbe” Kobberup. Kobbe is the sixth Danish player to join TSM, prompting the team to declare in their own announcement video, “TSM Definitely Do Not Have a Weird Thing for Danish Players.”

The announcement came in the form of a light-hearted video taking the form of a newscast. During the “broadcast,” Andy Dinh, the owner and CEO of TSM, celebrates having signed a sixth Danish player as a sign that the team will undoubtedly take Worlds this season. The joke continues as announcer Ovilee May frantically tries to open the door to Bjergsen’s room, desperately asking what gives Danish players their superpowers.

Kobbe is a young player with an extensive history as a professional player. At 23 years old, Kobbe has already been playing professionally since May of 2014 when he debuted for Denial eSports. His professional career brought him through several teams, including 4everzenzyg, Gamers2, Millenium, Team Dignitas, Follow eSports, and Splyce. Before Splice, his journey was a bit nomadic, playing for four different teams in the whole of 2015 alone. Once settled in Splice by the end of 2015, Kobbe stayed until now, leaving to join TSM.

Kobbe has been a mainstay in the Splice roster, primarily remaining a starting player throughout the majority of the 2019 season. Alongside Splice, he’s taken no first-place trophies this year, although they did manage to finish second in the LEC 2019 Regional Finals after losing a series against Fanatic.

The Danish ADC is set in his role, with his most common champion often being cited as Lucien. He’s logged a Pentakill using Caitlyn in a game against Schalke back in 2018, though Schalke did end up taking the series in a 2:3 result that would see Splice crashing out of the EU LCS 2018 Summer Playoffs in a 5th-6th place finish.

Kobbe also manages to be a threat in multiple video games. He’s a devout fan of Blizzard games, citing his enjoyment of games such as Warcraft 3, World of Warcraft, and Diablo. He’s also managed to achieve the rank of Global Elite in CS: GO, a genre of gaming that takes a completely separate type of skill than League of Legends.

What his place within TSM will be is currently unknown. Given his strong record, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him as a starting member of the roster. In fact, in terms of active players, he’s the only active roster member that mains ADC, so it seems we’ll see him starting for some time.
