European LCS team Elements have confirmed to theScore eSports that they will be adding Marcel "Dexter" Feldkamp as a substitute player to their League of Legends roster.
The move was first reported by the website summoners-inn.de.
Elements' owner Jacob Toft-Andersen explained the reasoning behind the addition of Dexter in a statement. Toft-Andersen also told theScore eSports that Feldkamp will not be starting this week.
The window for submissions of new players for rest of the season including playoffs closed yesterday, Monday 16th.
We merely added players to ensure that if something should happen, we were prepared. Riot has been encouraging adding and making use of substitutes, wanting to make it a more common approach and natural development of the teams, and Dexter is not the only substitute we have added.
We have all intentions of playing with the current starting lineup.
theScore has reached out for a comment about the other substitutes that have been added but have not obtained a response by publication time.
This post will be updated with the other substitutes when information becomes available.
Erik "Tabzz" van Helvert has been confirmed as the additional substitute by Riot Games.
