Biography

Since his childhood, Henrik “Froggen” Hansen has played video games such as Counter-Strike and Warcraft 3. Froggen was introduced to League of Legends by his brother and, over time, realized that becoming a professional gamer was a possibility. Froggen’s competitive drive and desire to be the best AP Carry in League of Legends has landed him amongst the best players in the world of professional gaming. Mechanics and lane dominance are two aspects of Froggen’s gameplay that he believes will set him above the rest, and secure victories for his team.

Season 1

Froggen's League of Legends career started with him spending a few months on minor teams, before joining Team Infused. After the team disbanded, just a month later, Froggen moved on to join Absolute Legends, where he met Wickd. With the merger of Absolute Legends and Counter Logic Gaming, the team Counter Logic Gaming EU was formed.

Season 2

Newly formed CLG.EU's first appearance would come at Kings of Europe. The team won the tournament and made a big statement by beating Moscow Five in the final. They would go on to follow this up with another triumph against Moscow Five, beating them in the final of the Corsair Vengeance Cup.

A long season saw Froggen and CLG.EU face Moscow Five on a number of other occasions. The next time the two would meet was the final of DreamHack Summer 2012, where again CLG.EU came out victorious. Despite their early season dominance, Froggen and the team were beaten by Moscow Five in the final of ECC Poland.

Next up for CLG.EU were the Regional Finals, where the team placed 3rd behind SK Gaming and Moscow Five. The team's performance sealed them a spot at the Season 2 World Championship. In preparation for this, CLG.EU placed second at Azubu The Champions Summer 2012 against mainly Korean opposition.

At the Season 2 World Championship, Froggen and the team finished in 2nd place in the group stages, securing them a place in the knockout rounds of the tournament. CLG.EU beat Team WE in the quarterfinals of the tournament, but were beaten in the semifinals by Madlife's Azubu Frost.

The team finished the season off with a 3rd place finish at the MLG Fall Championship and a 2nd placed finish at DreamHack Winter 2012. At the close of the season, the team decided to split with the CLG organization and join Evil Geniuses.

Season 3

A new challenge presented itself to Froggen and the team in the form of the upcoming LCS Spring Split. A number of good performances on Twisted FateSquare.png Twisted Fate from Froggen saw the team finish 4th, granting them a spot in the Spring Playoffs. Evil Geniuses lost to Fnatic in the semifinals of the tournament, but the team clinched 3rd place by beating SK Gaming in the 3rd place match.

With Froggen now performing especially well on AhriSquare.png Ahri and JayceSquare.png Jayce, the Summer Split was strangely similar to the Spring Split for EG. With a 3rd place finish, they secured a spot in the Summer Playoffs. Playoffs losses to Fnatic in the semifinal and Moscow Five in the 3rd place match saw Evil Geniuses finish 4th.

On December 10, 2013, Froggen and longtime teammate Wickd left Evil Geniuses and joined Alliance.[1]

2014 Season

The start of the Spring Split was disappointing for Froggen and the rest of Alliance, as they found themselves consistently ranked in the bottom 3 teams, until the 8th week. From here onwards, Alliance dominated the split. An overall team improvement propelled them up to 1st in the penultimate week. Froggen's individual performances saw him collect 2 weekly MVP awards and the overall MVP award for the split. In an unsuccessful superweek, Alliance lost the top spot and finished in 3rd place behind SK Gaming and Fnatic.

Alliance's performance in their first split resulted in their qualification for the Spring Playoffs. The playoffs saw the team lose to Fnatic in the semifinal, and then to ROCCAT in the 3rd place match.

Froggen was voted by EU fans to take part in the All-Star Challenge at All-Star Paris 2014 along with Diamondprox. Froggen played on Team Ice during the tournament along with Doublelift, Madlife and others. His 'Super 1v1' win against Team Fire's WeiXiao secured the overall win for Team Ice.

The Summer Split saw Alliance emulate their form from the end of the Spring Split. Froggen's impressive performances on a range of champions, including XerathSquare.png Xerath in particular, helped the team to a 1st place finish - with Alliance staying at the peak of the rankings table for the entire split.

Following this was the Summer Playoffs, a chance for Froggen to qualify for the World Championship in his first season with the organization. Alliance placed 1st in the playoffs, beating Fnatic in the final, and secured themselves a place at the World Championship.

The World Championship saw Alliance placed in Group D along with NaJin White Shield, Cloud9 and KaBuM! e-Sports. Despite successful games for Froggen on AhriSquare.png Ahri, Alliance beat each team once and lost to each team once, resulting in a 3rd place finish in the group. This meant they would not go any further in the tournament.

2015 Season

Alliance were the European team invited to IEM San Jose. Seeded directly into the semifinals, Froggen and the team lost their matchup to Cloud9 and tied for third place with Team SoloMid.

In order to comply with new LCS regulations, Alliance would have to change their name for the upcoming season, and they rebranded as Elements.[2] The Spring Split itself was not a success for the team, finishing in 7th place after making a number of roster changes. This meant that the team would not go to playoffs, but would qualify for the Summer Split.

After the split, Elements changed their roster significantly; Froggen being the only member to stay on the team, while Jwaow, dexter, Tabzz, and promisQ joined as starters.[3] The Summer Split was also disappointing for the team, again finishing in 7th place, though this meant that they would still have a place in next season's Spring Split.

2016 Season

Froggen moved to North America for the 2016 season, joining new venture-capital-backed team Echo Fox along with Keith, Hard, Big, and Korean soloqueue star top laner kfo. Visa problems kept Froggen, Hard, and kfo out of competition for several games early on in the season, and despite an upswing after the full roster returned, Echo Fox placed seventh at the end of the spring split - out of playoffs but also safe from relegation. Their overall season record was 6-12, with 6 of those losses coming from their games with a substitute roster as well as a forfeit prior to determining their substitute roster. With their full lineup, their record was 6-6.

In the Summer Season, Echo Fox had almost no roster problems at all - they substituted Grigne in for two games in week 3, and switched Froggen to top lane for one game while kfo played mid lane, but other than that they had a completely stable roster. With stability did not come an improvement over their spring performance; while they picked up several individual game wins (including handing Team SoloMid their only game 1 defeat of the entire split), the team lost every single series after the first week and finished in last place, three series behind the ninth-place NRG. In the 2017 Spring Promotion Tournament, Echo Fox turned their season around and took advantage of NRG's weakness, beating Team Liquid Academy in the elimination round, losing to the much-improved Phoenix1, and then sweeping NRG in the final series to return to the LCS for 2017.

2017 Season

After speculations about Froggen leaving Echo Fox rise, he subsequently released his official statement on Youtube in regards to his termination with the team and shared his perspective outlook for the future in 2018.

2018 Season

On the 29th March 2018 Origen, along with Riot Games confirmed that Origen along with some of the teams from the 2017 CS would compete in the new European Masters competition in April 2018. On the 31st March 2018, Origen announced that former KT Rolster jungler Choi "inSec" In-Seok would join the team. On the 3rd April 2018, Origen announced that former G2 ESports toplaner Ki "Expect" Dae-han would also join the team. It was widely rumored on Twitch as well as on Discord that he will be returning to the League of Legends professional scene in 2018. This was later confirmed by Origen (eSports) on Twitter on April 5, 2018, as they announce that Froggen will be joining them as their mid laner.
