Originally from Denmark, Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen is one of the most well-known players in the North American LCS. He is regarded for his impeccable decision making and mechanics, both which allow him to rival and overwhelm other top tier talents in NA.
Jensen had originally been permanently suspended due to doxing and toxicity, both in and out of competitive games. However, the ruling was overturned two years later, allowing him to be picked up by Cloud 9 as their starting mid laner later on as he demonstrated his skill, and desire to reform.
Journey with Cloud9
Having gotten unbanned and picked up by Cloud9, one of the biggest gaming organisations in the world, Jensen truly reformed and rebuilt a great reputation. Initially when Jensen had been signed by Cloud9 as their mid laner, many were sceptical considering he was responsible for filling the shoes of another high profile player, Hai. However, Jensen quickly gained the support of fans with not only his in-game ability but personality in interviews. That said, his confident personality may sometimes backfire, as shown in Worlds where Jensen tweeted he could not “wait to clap faker”, before getting solo killed multiple times.
Having signed with Cloud9 for over three years as their starting mid laner, Jensen has had his own fair share of success. 2018 was an amazing year for both Jensen and Cloud9, the team taking out second place in the Summer split and playoffs, and remarkably placing 3rd-4th in the 2018 League of Legends World Championships.
Picked up by Team Liquid
After a stunning 2018, Jensen was signed by Team Liquid, the reigning champions of the NA LCS Summer split and Summer playoffs. Jensen quickly settled with the other players on Team Liquid, the roster being fully stacked with top tier talent. 2019 looks to be a great year for Team Liquid, going undefeated in the first two weeks of the Spring split.
