Sencux Domestic Career
Chres “Sencux” Laursen began his LoL career on Reason Gaming. He took part in the 2014 EU CS Spring #2 and claimed third place with victories over Mousesports and Team Coast Gold. Their playoffs run kicked off with another promising victory over Mousesports, but the following losses to Ninjas in Pyjamas and Denial eSports knocked them out of the competition.
Sencux went on to 4everzenzyg. His team attended the 2014 EU CS Summer #2 but failed in the Quarterfinals against SK Gaming Prime. Shortly thereafter, they went to the Island of the Legends 2014. But while they managed to pick up a win in the Quarterfinals against Giants Academy, 4everzenzyg crumbled in the following series against Dragons.
Afterward, Sencux joined the same team that defeated him, SK Prime. Together with his new teammates, he attended the International Invitational Tournament 4. Contrary to what the name suggests, this was a competition between European teams only, and SK Prime managed to secure a third-place finish with a win over Big Plays Incorporated.
Then, for the third time, Sencux participated in the EU CS Qualifiers, and with back-to-back victories against Annihilon and SPARTA, he made it into the Challenger Series. As they prepared for the 2015 EU CS Spring Split, the entire SK Prime roster was acquired by Team Dignitas EU.
Still, they had a lackluster showing and failed to make it into the playoffs in spring. They had a much better run in summer, securing an 8-2 record and finishing the regular season in second place. In the playoffs, Team Dignitas EU won two close series against Denial eSports and Mousesports to qualify for the EU LCS.
In the off-season, the entire roster was acquired by Splyce. Splyce had a shaky run in the 2016 Spring Split, going 5-13 in the regular season and failing to qualify for the playoffs. Not only that but this showing knocked them down to the Promotion Tournament where they had to defend their slot against Giants Gaming. With a victory in a close 5-game series, Splyce managed to hold on to their LCS life.
Much like in the Challenger Series, Splyce had a massive resurgence in summer. 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 EU LCS 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 Sencux joined Misfits Gaming.
Sencux International Tournaments
Sencux attended his first international tournament—the 2016 World Championship—as a part of Splyce. 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.
