According to the official Unicorns of Love Twitter account, their starting Botlaner Samux will be subbed out for their substitute Botlaner Neon.

The Spanish section of their tweet translates to: “We all hope you’ll get better soon, friend”. This suggests that it is Samux’ illness that prevents him from playing on stage.
While there have been no details revealed about what Samux’ health problems are, the team stated multiple times that him not being able to play on stage could become an issue in the 2018 Summer Split. When Neon was first brought on, many people speculated that Samux wouldn’t play whatsoever. However, this will be the first time Neon will play on the EU LCS stage.
Neon previously competed for the LoL-division of Team Millenium. The team has since disbanded their League-division.
