As it had done a few months earlier during the French championships, the Karmine Corp won from its first participation. The structure, which does not have the budget of some of its competitors on the French scene, achieved a feat after a hotly contested final against the British team BT Excel.

Saken still decisive

Organized twice a year, the European Masters (EU Masters) are considered to be the second largest tournament on the continent after the European Championship (The LoL European Championship). The competition brings together the winners of the national championships, 28 teams in total.

The two meetings ended in a French victory.

This success, the Kameto team owes in large part to Lucas “Saken” Fayard, a former Team Vitality, once again decisive and author of a capital performance.
