Esports: "Zanzarah" moved to Misfits Premier to start winning

League of Legends Nikolay "Zanzarah" Akatov insists he made the move to Academy side Misfits Premier from Astralis to stop losing and start winning.

In the LEC Summer Split, meanwhile, Astralis are 7/2 to beat G2 Esports, who can be backed at 1/6 to prevail.

New start for "Zanzarah"

Jungler "Zanzarah" put pen to paper on a deal with Misfits Premier, the Academy side of Misfits Gaming, last month and is hoping to help them climb the ranks in the LFL Summer Split.

The team began the Split with three straight defeats but claimed their first scalp of the tournament last time out against Mirage Elyandra.

They still sit in the lower echelons of the LFL Summer Split but there is a long way to go and new addition "Zanzarah" believes he has made the right move switching sides, claiming wins were few and far between at Astralis.

Astralis eyeing change in fortunes

The Danish side currently sit rock bottom of the LEC Summer Split with a 3-15 win-loss record and have struggled in 2022.

"Zanzarah", though, is now with Misfits Premier and insists he moved to the team to win.

Speaking about his move, "Zanzarah" said: "I don't want to prove anything - I just want to win something because sometimes in Astralis- yeah, if you join Astralis, you don't want to win, let's be honest.

"But in Misfits, this is a good organization.

"This is the organization that wants to show up, that wants to stomp people and show who is boss. This is why I am in Misfits right now. I'm tired of losing - I cam here to win."
