Mikyx Domestic Career
Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle began his LoL career playing for Bottled Water and acting as a substitute for Fnatic. However, his first notable showings happened on Splyce, and it was largely because of him that the team had a massive resurgence in the 2016 EU LCS Summer Split. With a 9-6-3 record (wins-ties-losses), they ascended to the second-place finish in the regular season.
In the playoffs, they took down H2K Gaming with a 3-2 score and went on to challenge G2 in the finals. Unfortunately, this match ended in defeat for them, and Splyce had to participate in the Regional Finals to qualify for the 2016 World Championship. There, they scored a narrow victory over UOL to punch their Worlds ticket.
Splyce kept the same roster for the 2017 Spring Split. But the team had a hard time standing up to the rising level of competition. Splyce finished the regular season with a 7-6 record and barely qualified for the playoffs. There, they fell in a 5-game Quarterfinal against Misfits Gaming.
Splyce attempted to recapture their lightning in the bottle next split. But the regular season went the same way, and in the Quarterfinals, Splyce suffered a narrow loss at the hand of G2. Of course, they could still run it back through the Regional Finals. However, a 0-3 loss to H2K put an end to their ambitions.
At this point, it became clear that Splyce plateaued. In the off-season, the organization overhauled its roster, and Mikyx joined Misfits Gaming.
Mikyx International Tournaments
On Splyce, Mikyx attended his first international tournament, the 2016 World Championship. Unfortunately, his team was seeded into the same group with TSM, SSG, and RNG. In face of such fierce competition, Splyce went 1-5 and failed to advance to the knockout stage.
