Mitch "Krepo" Voorspoels is a retired support who has played for Counter Logic Gaming Europe, Evil Geniuses, and Elements. He is currently an official Riot caster for the EU LCS.

Biography

After starting out on console systems primarily, Krepo's introduction to PC gaming was with Warcraft 3, and he eventually began playing World of Warcraft. After some time, Krepo discovered Defense of the Ancients - the game which ultimately led him to play League of Legends. Starting off at what he calls a “mediocre” level of play, Krepo improved his skill and his rank with the acquisition of a new computer.

Season 1

The first team Krepo played for was Fureur. He also spent a short time playing for La GG along with fredy122 and Snoopeh among others, though the team was not a success. At the end of the season, Krepo joined Counter Logic Gaming Europe along with Wickd, Snoopeh, Froggen, and Yellowpete.

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 Krepo 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, Krepo 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 Krepo and the team in the form of the upcoming LCS Spring Split. A number of good performances on  Thresh from Krepo 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 Krepo now performing especially well on both  Thresh and  Sona, 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.

At the end of the season, Evil Geniuses split into two parts, with Froggen and Wickd staying in Europe to form Alliance, while Krepo, Snoopeh, and Yellowpete stayed with the organisation and moved to North America.

2014 Season

Krepo and the new team played in the Spring Promotion, acquiring the spot of Velocity eSports. Krepo and the team managed to beat To Be Determined to qualify for the Spring Split.

A disappointing 7th place finish in the regular season meant that Krepo and Evil Geniuses would be playing in the Summer Promotion. They were matched up with Cloud9 Tempest in the promotion tournament, and beat the team 3-1 to secure their place in the Summer Split.

Another below-par split saw Krepo and Evil Geniuses finish 7th in the regular season once again, meaning they would be playing in the Spring Promotion. Here, Krepo and the team managed to beat Team Coast to qualify for the Spring Season. However, Krepo left Evil Geniuses a month later.

2015 Season

At the start of the season, Krepo partnered with Cloud9 as streamer.[1] A month later, he joined Elements to play in the Spring Season of the EU LCS, replacing Nyph.[2] Now reunited with Froggen and Wickd, Krepo's contribution helped the team to a 7th place finish in the split, avoiding relegation. After the end of the split, Krepo announced his retirement.[3]

Soon after his retirement, Krepo joined the EU LCS caster team for the start of the Summer Split[4] and subsequently was invited to be one of the Riot casters for the 2015 Worlds.
