emi joined FunPlus Phoenix

Former CR4ZY and c0ntact captain Luka "emi" Vukovic has joined the FunPlus Phoenix team, where he will take over the responsibilities of an in-game leader. The Chinese multigaming announced this on its official Twitter account.

FPX has been in search of a captain since the departure of Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend last November, when the European team was still under the umbrella of GODSENT. Miikka "suNny" Kemppi and Chris "chrisJ" de Jong were tested for the vacant spot at various times.

Emi's last team was c0ntact, which he left in October 2020. Notably, he had already played with his current teammates as a stand-in for DreamHack Masters Winter 2020, where he helped GODSENT take 3rd-4th place.

Emi will make his FunPlus Phoenix debut at IEM Summer 2021 qualifyiers April 26-28. Next month the team will compete in the RMR Flashpoint 3 tournament.
