"Nyph" (Real Name: Patrick Funke) is a retired German League of Legends player, former Coach for FC Schalke 04.


Nyph is a League of Legends player coming from Kirchheim unter Teck (not too far from Stuttgart), Germany. The first game he ever played was The Legend of Zelda (the first installment of the Zelda franchise). He would go on to play games such as FIFA World Cup 1998, Anno 1604, The Elder Scrolls (Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim later on), Warcraft III (mostly the custom maps), World of Warcraft and Dawn of War.

He would play Dark Age of Camelot and Counter-Strike: Source semi-competitively. One of the friends he made in Dark Age of Camelot, enticed him to try League of Legends. At first, he was reluctant - even skipping the opportunity to play during the beta. Eventually he started playing the game when Nidalee was released (end of 2009/early January 2010). He reached level 30, along with hitting the Top 500 milestone, before Ranked games were installed.
