Slingshot Readers,

We NEED your support. More specifically, the author of this article needs your support. If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat. If just half our readers gave 1 DOLLAR a month, one measly dollar, we could fund all the work from StuChiu, DeKay, Emily, Andrew (and even Vince). If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support. After all, you're what makes all this happen. Learn more

Misfits added a new coach to its League of Legends staff.

Aleksei “Hiiva” Kaikkonen announced Thursday on Twitter he joined Misfits’ staff as a strategic coach. Hiiva previously played on a number of European teams as a support, most recently Origen. He also played as a substitute for Misfits on multiple occasions, most recently during the spring split of the European League of Legends Championship Series.

Hiiva will tackle the role of coach for the first time over the course of his four year career.

Misfits is a rising star in the European LCS, placing fourth in the 2017 spring split after falling to Fnatic in the third place match. Misfits began the EU LCS summer split by winning 2-0 against the Ninjas in Pyjamas and continue the schedule on Saturday against Team ROCCAT.
