COVID-19 peek activated. Feels pretty weird to live without ability to smell and taste tbh. Other than that all good after some days with fever?— Miikka Kemppi (@suNnycsgo) March 30, 2021
sunNy made his debut for FunPlus Phoenix in the group stage of ESL Pro League Season 13 and helped the European team get into the top 3 of Group A, which guaranteed a spot in the playoffs. FunPlus Phoenix will face FURIA in the opening main stage match of the event on April 2.
