Known for his aggression and large champion pool, Smittyj is a top laner that likes to fight. Whether it's soaking up damage on the front line, or diving the enemy backline, where there is action, SmittyJ will be at the heart of it. After promoting Schalke to the LCS, SmittyJ has once again teamed up with Caedrel, this time under the H2K banner.

It seems like a lifetime ago that Shook played the perfect game against Najin at the World Championships. Clearly, the ability is still there in abundance, as he continues to carve his way through the competition. Lee Sin might not be meta anymore, but a smart head on a mechanically gifted jungler will always be meta!

H2K (Hard to Kill) belongs to a small group of early esports organizations that contracted professional players before the live-streaming revolution.

Our League of Legends team has been among the most consistent and successful teams in the World. For three consecutive years, we have finished in the top three in the European LCS. In 2016, H2K was the only Western team to reach the semi-finals of the World Championship held at Madison Square Garden in NY City after emerging as the number 1 seed from its group in San Francisco and winning its quarter final match in Chicago.

Today, we boast a board and management team to rival the best in the industry. Our CEO was the former CFO for Kanye West's West Brands while our Board members range from a former founding partner at a prestigious law firm to a Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship. Together with a management team comprised of esports veterans, H2K seeks to be the world's best esports franchise both inside and out of the games we compete in.

H2K is proud of its commitment to our talent; providing competitive salaries, best in class living conditions and a dedicated creative media team for our committed pro-players. Supported by some of the most engaged and loyal fans in the games we play makes H2K one of the fastest growing organizations in esports.

Unlike traditional major league sport teams, esport teams do not generally have mature veteran players or coaches to give guidance to the younger players. H2K recognizes this and believes it has a special responsibility to provide the young players, who are away from home, with the support system they need to grow emotionally so they are comfortable with both themselves and the outside world.
