rhyme joins Gen.G from the defunct Ninjas in Pyjamas Ninjas in Pyjamas Inactive squad, which was disbanded early last month when the organization announced its intentions to build a team in the Latin American region.
Gen.G have been without a fifth since benching Michael "MkaeL" De Luca in early September, and afterwards sought out the aid of Nolan "Temperature" Pepper on a loan from Evil Geniuses Evil Geniuses North America Rank #27 . After being eliminated from the NA LCQ by Cloud9 Cloud9 North America Rank #4 , Temperature's loan ended, leaving the team once again without a full roster.
While rhyme's addition to Gen.G's North American squad is unusual, there have been other players that have joined North American teams from outside their home countries. Maxim "wippie" Shepelev of Version1, Ha "Sayaplayer" Jeong-woo (하정우) of The Guard, and Son "xeta" Seon-ho (손선호) of Cloud9 are all players that are competing on North American teams from abroad. However, he may not be the last European to venture out into North America, as former teammate Adam "ec1s" Eccles has been spotted amongst a host of names trialing for 100 Thieves.
