Origen has signed Augustas "Toaster" Ruplys as their new starting AD carry, according to their updated roster list on Lol Esports.

According to Riot's schedule, Toaster is set to replace Enrique "xPeke" Cedeño Martínez as the team's starting ADC in their Week 7 EU LCS matches against FC Schalke 04 and Team ROCCAT.

The British ADC is a newcomer to the EU LCS, having never played for an LCS or Challenger team. Over the past two years he has mostly played in regional UK tournaments with teams like FM eSports, Exertus Esports and Team Infused.

He played in two ESL UK Premierships, as part of Infused’s first-place Spring 2015 lineup, and later with Exertus’ Spring 2016 lineup (at the time playing under the handle “Gakis”), which fell to Renegades: Banditos in the semifinals, finishing third.

xPeke, Origen’s co-founder and substitute mid laner, has been serving as the team’s ADC since Konstantinos “FORG1VEN” Tzortziou was benched and left the team under strained circumstances after the first week of the split. The team’s results in the EU LCS Summer Split have suffered since xPeke was subbed in — they are currently in second-last place in the standings, with a 1-6-5 record — and they have been searching hard for a new player to fill the hole.

Origen’s new addition coincides with FORG1VEN’s return to League of Legends with H2k-Gaming, which he left in May to join Origen.

Toaster will get his chance to burn FC Schalke on July 14 and ROCCAT on July 15.
