Rodrigo 'Lelis' Santos replaced Adrian 'Wisper' Cesperes at beastcoast during the DreamLeague Season 13: The Leipzig Major, because the Bolivian offlaner's health issues.
The Brazilian player wasn't just an ordinary replacement, but helped the Peruvian squad to upset top teams such as Nigma. In the end they finished in the top 8 with 450 DPC points on their account.
He gained enough attention worldwide to be considered a recruit for several teams - and one of them are Ninjas in Pyjamas. He'll take over the offlane from Saahil 'Universe' Arora while the American all-star moves to position 4 and replaces Malthe 'Biver' Winther.
The new carry of the squad is Nikita 'Daxak' Kuzmin who played for AS Monaco Gambit and Winstrike in the CIS region for the last two seasons.
