After winning the European Championship with Karmine Corp, Rekkles and his team have attracted a fan base as strong as the LEC tournament.
Half a year ago, Europe’s cult AD carry – Rekkles caused a sensation when he left the LEC tournament to join Karmine Corp (KC) and compete in a tournament system not organized by Riot Games.
After joining KC, this 25-year-old marksman once made many fans sad because he only won 3rd place at LFL Spring 2022 (France’s domestic tournament) and won a “rescued ticket” to the European Masters (EM) tournament. ). But surprisingly, Rekkles and his teammates at KC were crowned champions of EM Spring 2022 in an impressive way.
And to thank the fans who have been cheering for KC all this time, this team has organized an event on the scale of Riot Games’ Worlds. More specifically, KC organized an Esports event where fans will come to watch Valorant, League of Legends (LFL), music between breaks, etc. at AccorHotels Arena (where the finals of Worlds 2019 will be held). .
According to KC announcement, all 12,000 tickets of this event “sold out” after only a few hours of opening for sale. This is not an impressive number of tickets for World Championships like 2018 (50,000 tickets), 2019 (20,000 tickets), but compared to 2021 (6,300 tickets), it is almost double.
Of course, tournaments like LFL and EM will be underestimated by many people compared to LEC because they do not have the right to attend MSI or Worlds every year. However, when it comes to the size of the tournament, only KC fans are able to “surpass” LEC.
According to many rumors from the Western League of Legends community, KC will be named in the LEC in the 2023 season. If this rumor is true, KC will “carry” to help LEC a significant burden in terms of the number of followers both live and live. continue and online.
