One of the most famous top lane Irelia players in the world, Mike “Wickd” Petersen rose to stardom with CLG.eu during Season 2. Wickd followed his teammates to Evil Geniuses, and then on to Elements (previously known as Alliance), and has continued to draw pressure and bans in the top lane. Best known for his 1v1 mechanics, Wickd and the rest of Elements are most at home in a long, drawn-out match. However, the recent meta shifts have not played to their favor, and EL had a 7W-11L record in the 2015 EU LCS Spring Split. Their results saw them in 7th place, behind newcomers H2k and Unicorns of Love.
Wickd moved to the EU Challenger Series in 2015, joining Denial eSports in their push to qualify for the EU LCS.
