X7 Esports have completed their full roster for the Northern League of Legends Championship Division 1 for 2022 by signing Danish bot laner Nataniel “Nata” Fikrisellasie Asrat and Belgian Head Coach Nias “Nias” Vanwalleghem, according to sources close to Upcomer. This comes after LEC Gliscor and esportmaniacos first reported on X7’s roster.
After esportmanicos reported on X7 signing Lennart “Jaeger” Warkus, Kan “Haru” Min-Seung, Kang “Tempt” Myung-gu and Raymong “kaSing” Tsang, many were left wondering who their bot laner and head coach would be. Bot laner Nata is a newer name to the competitive scene and most recently played for eMonkeyz for the entirety of 2021 in the Spanish SuperLiga. While the overall results for eMonkeyz were not ideal, Nata had many strong individual performances.
