FPX announce emi signing

The international team have finally found their new in-game leader.

FunPlus Phoenix have completed the signing of former Valiance and c0ntact member Luka "⁠emi⁠" Vuković on a free transfer, the Chinese organisation said on Monday, ending the team's protracted saga to find a new in-game leader.

emi will occupy the spot that has been vacant since Kevin "⁠kRYSTAL⁠" Amend's benching in November, when the team still represented GODSENT. He was one of the three players - along with Chris "⁠chrisJ⁠" de Jong and Miikka "⁠suNny⁠" Kemppi - that the team considered for the in-game leader role.

emi takes the reins of FPX as the new in-game leader

"I am thrilled to get an opportunity to play for such a big brand as FPX," emi said in a statement. "The atmosphere on TeamSpeak has been amazing and I am really looking forward to playing and competing with my new teammates.

"I will definitely do my best as always to make this team a title contender as FPX is a household name that deserves to be among the top in the CS:GO ecosystem."

Petar "⁠peca⁠" Marković, FunPlus Phoenix's general manager, added: "We strongly believe that emi's deep CS knowledge and experience can kick-start our season and help us to achieve the goals that we set at the beginning of 2021. We were looking for a dedicated, hard-working, aggressive in-game leader who fits our playstyle, and with emi we found our last piece of the puzzle."

FunPlus Phoenix turned to emi after once again failing in their efforts to sign chrisJ, who is on mousesports' bench. Three weeks ago, team member Martin "⁠STYKO⁠" Styk said on the 'HLTV Confirmed' podcast that he was hopeful of a positive outcome after negotiations with the Dutch player had been resumed.

The team played their last two tournaments - ESL Pro League Season 13 and the Fantasyexpo Spring Cup - with suNny, but any hope that they had of signing the Finnish player evaporated when he and Robin "⁠flusha⁠" Rönnquist formalised their project under the temporary name GORILLAZ.

emi, who has been without a team since he was released by c0ntact in October, played with FunPlus Phoenix for approximately a month in late November and early December, helping them to a semi-final appearance in DreamHack Masters Winter following victories over Astralis, Heroic and North. In January, he told HLTV.org that the team "had some other options and they wanted to evaluate them", adding that he would wait for the right opportunity to return to action.

According to FPX, emi will make his first appearance as an official member in the closed qualifier for IEM Summer, scheduled for April 26-28. Next month, the team will be competing in Flashpoint 3, the first Regional Major Ranking (RMR) tournament of the year in Europe, which will run from May 10-30.

With emi's signing, FunPlus Phoenix now have:

Finland Jesse "⁠zehN⁠" Linjala
Montenegro Pavle "⁠Maden⁠" Bošković
Slovakia Martin "⁠STYKO⁠" Styk
Denmark Asger "⁠Farlig⁠" Jensen
Serbia Luka "⁠emi⁠" Vuković

Sweden Jonatan "⁠Devilwalk⁠" Lundberg (coach)

FPX played ChrisJ on a loan basis from mousesports, FPX wanted to sign Chrisj as their IGL but the deal fail through due to difference in salary. Styko had said in the past on HLTV confirmed that they'll retry signing Chrisj but it looks like that the deal fell off again.

What do you mean he's a team ruiner? He's basically only played on mousesports for the past 7 years or something. And they've been good several times with him on the roster. Don't get me wrong, he's definitely not a great player, but he's not like ruining teams.

Which is not reasonable at all to be honest. Anyone can be hardcarried by zywoo in his prime... I think emi is reasonable pickup for probably not that much money and they still can do good with him if he will want to prove himself (which he should want A LOT). Will be interesting to see them with permanent roster finally. Imo solid "dark horse" team without potential to reach T1.

I thought the same, which led me to think that (if we assume ChrisJ is a reasonable person who wants to get back in the game asap) it might not be true that he demanded a huge salary but rather that mouz had a big buyout for him... when did he sign hsi last contract?

I think that mouz wanted that much money in a frist place but that just speculation. Even tho I still believe that ChrisJ will get less money even if he would have play for FPX. Kinda sad imo but it is what it is.

So true, it was Chris's bad not teams. Emi is a downgrade from Chris but he is a devoted person and an experienced captain. Let's not forget that he has picked some nice IGL scalps such as Glaive, Snappi, Cadian, Jame, Magisk, Gade, Aleksib, BlameF etc. and proudly earned a nickname "Dane Slayer"

Classic dumbass Swede. The point was that things have happened between 2020 GODSENT with emi and 2021 FPX. with emi It'll not be the same honeymoon team that is was in 2020. It was a huge disappointment to the FPX boys to not get chrisJ or ALEX to the team. "If we don't get chrisJ or ALEX, I don't honestly know what we'll do." -zehN emi is basically their very last choice. And zehn's comments about emi implies quite clearly that they don't trust him very much. "And if they’re put together the old roster they would still be better than ence/havu etc yes." Thanks for telling me that you don't know nothing about the situation.

So u mean aerial, saw, aleksi, allu sergej Wouldnt beat current ence and havu? :D And yes, they maybe don’t like playing with emi as much as chris, but still, they got results with him (not before and not after), and that’s what matters in the end, period. Btw, what’s finish peoples desire about talking down swedes about? Do you feel smaller or something which makes you act like angry children?

Yes, old ENCE would definitely not be a better team than current HAVU or ENCE. "they got results with him (not before and not after), and that’s what matters in the end, period." No idea what you're trying to say. I can guarantee you that this FPX team won't do anything. Come back here after six months and see that I was right. I could even bet that emi is not even in the team anymore in October. I actually love Swedes but you are apparently one of those classic dumbasses. And bro, we both know that Sweden is the little brother nowadays :D It's known that Sweden is the worst nordic country.

Come on .. even Young Ninjas > current ence lol, the old ence lineup wouldnt be that bad. And i wont argue about Sweden being a shit country, i’m thinking of moving for both of my daughters sake. But still, why do finns get so offended by swedes and so easily?

The "if things go right" was the salary agreement between chrisJ and FPX, I guess. Then they maybe thought Alex would be cheaper because he got dropped of C9. He probably wasn't, so they picked their old IGL (emi).

with alex they would probably change everyone in the team BUT alex... he had a shot with c9, it didn't work out... The thing is... which other team would possibly pick Chris? I mean no offense or anything but in csgo I don't see him in any team really.. if he starts something on his own perhaps but...

Maybe Endpoint? But I doubt they have the money for him. Mightymax isn't a bad IGL fragger, so maybe get chrisJ to help with calls and give Mightymax more space to frag? But I guess Endpoint is going to pick Thomas, he already played some maps with them lately and it seems to work.

What a joke of a team/org/management & circumstances... - The players are willing to get chrisJ and they push for him but you don't do everything to sign him ? - What the fuck is wrong with chrisJ not getting signed, is he so greedy he doesn't see it's kind of his last chance ? Especially with so many orgs pulling out of CS due to the lack of LANs and new sponsors. Idiotic move tbh. - Why the hell you don't push for ALEX or even MSL if you couldn't get your first option ? I mean these two are clearly proven IGL and if you want to step up and live up to your potential after signing with this huge org, it won't work with a tier2/3 IGL. And that's the main reason they were kicking kRYSTAL in the first place. - I thought this org was rich asf and they're being picky on pricetags... So many things to question with one single move, you should have brought back kRYSTAL if you wanted to go back to square one.

I recently watched an interview with him where he talked about his whole career for about 2 hours, he is a great hard-working guy that has done everything to develop our scene, and later others aswell. Sadly this interview is in serbian and no translation, but you gotta know this guy didnt get a high position in an org as big as FPX by making bad business moves

what about Nexa and Hunter? He knew them too, but did he made a mistake? CrisJ just didnt fit the team and thats all, also i think he was on loan at FPX

But then again isnt that the entire story of fpx? zehn, leftover finnish player from havu farlig, like 5th? best danish awper maden, noname player from montenegro styko actually has a name and was proven leftover lower tier players like krystal and maikelele And they made it work somehow anyways. So, lets wait and se how this emi move turns out.

Anyway yes chrisJ is better and more experience player but Emi is a hard working guy, everyone was laughing when he was stand in and he proved that he can igl and actually kill and open round vs t1 team,
2021-04-20 15:03
emi is a good leader, I think it's a good pickup for FPX. But still I feel like they lack firepower so hard, that they would need much more changes, maybe even a rebuild of the roster, if they want to compete tbh.
