Schalke 04 have acquired Rudy "Rudy" Beltran, Benjamin "Visdom" Ruberg Larsen, Jørgen "Hatrixx" Elgåen and Ian "NightSniper" De Schepper for their pre-season roster.

Etienne "Steve" Michels is the only returning player to S04, having played with the team since they picked up the Elements roster in May.

Rudy is the most well-known player joining S04, having briefly played for Unicorns of Love in the 2016 EU LCS Spring Split before joining Huma in March.

Visdom and Hatrixx previously played with each other on HWA Gaming in the Turkish Championship League, where the team placed in the Top 4 in the 2016 TCL Summer Playoffs.

The new roster comes a few weeks after S04 launched a scouting camp for competitive LoL players for an opportunity to play with the team.

S04 was relegated in the 2017 EU LCS Spring Promotion tournament after losing to ROCCAT and Misfits. The team previously placed eighth in the summer split with a record of 3-9-6.
