Jan "Ek0p" Palys has joined Millenium's new Hearthstone roster, along with Thomas "Sintolol" Zimmer, Théo "Felkeine" Dumont, Chris "Feno" Tsakopoulos and Dimitris "Dethelor" Theodoropoulos.

Millenium announced the new Hearthstone lineup in a French-language post on their website.

Ek0p was formerly a member of Cloud9's Hearthstone squad, joining when the members of Doge House signed with the organization. Of Millenium's new players, he is the most widely known, winning the $10,000 grand prize at Insomnia58's Truesilver Championship III.

Sintolol was formerly a member of Northern Gaming, and he notes his affinity for aggressive decks in Millenium's announcement. He managed to reach the Top 8 of the European Last Call Invitational.

Felkeine describes himself as a student balancing his studies and his Hearthstone obligations and notes that his goal is to qualify for the Spring Championship. In the meantime, he said, he plans to compete at French LAN events when possible and hopes to qualify for an international event where he can test his abilities.

In Millenium's announcement, Feno said that he loves combo-style decks, including Miracle Rogue, with which he claims to have over 15,000 victories. He achieved Top 8 at DreamHack Valencia 2016.

Dethelor managed a Top 16 finish at Valencia, and noted in the announcement that he has been playing the game since Closed Beta. In his statement, he said his favorite class is Warlock, particularly Reno Lock.

This is not the first Hearthstone lineup for Millenium, whose previous roster included 2016 Hearthstone world champion Pavel "Pavel" Beltukov. That group of players left to join ArmaTeam on Jan. 1.
