Huma to sell League team, EU Challenger spot

Huma made the EU promotion tournament in the Spring.

Team Huma

European Challenger Series team Huma will fold its League of Legends operations and sell its Challenger spot, the organization announced on Twitter Monday.

Huma was announced in December 2015 with an all-star Challenger roster that included former TSM jungler Lucas “Santorin” Larsen, former Giants top laner Jorge “Werlyb” Casanovas and Turkish AD Carry Anıl "HolyPhoenix" Işık, the first high-profile Turkish import in EU.

The team qualified for the 2016 EUCS Spring Split through the open qualifier and regular qualifier, and then finished second in the Challenger regular season with a 3-1-1 record. Huma won the Spring Challenger playoffs by defeating Copenhagen Wolves 3-2 in the finals, but failed to secure promotion to the LCS, losing to Giants Gaming 3-1 in the promotion tournament.

By the time Summer Split rolled around, none of the players from the original starting roster remained. Huma still managed to finish second in the Challenger regular season, but failed to make it to the promotion tournament after an early playoff exit.
