KOI x Rogue
KOI and Rogue have announced a 'strategic partnership', with the intent to strengthen their branding and ability to compete worldwide. Rogue currently fields two LoL teams, as well as a Rocket League Roster and a few others, while KOI has a Lol Team and Valorant team.
Rogue will continue to compete in the LEC with their current management team but will rebrand to KOI for the 2023 season. This will be a huge positive for European League of Legends, as KOI bring with them a huge fanbase.
With Rumours circulating about Karmine Corp, their ERL rivals also coming to the LEC, fresh faces could be just what the LEC needs after years of G2 and Fnatic dominance.
KOI and Rogue LoL Teams - Who will compete?
While we don't know exactly who will compete for the organisations different rosters, we do have some clues. They currently field 3 teams between them, which is rumoured to be cut down to two.
The current LEC team will compete as is, and will head into the 2023 season to defend their title. They will however rebrand to KOI, so expect to hear the crown roar for the reigning champions like never before.
We also expect AGO Rogue and KOI in the LVP to combine, and field one roster made up of the best of the ten players. With KOI having a tricky season and only finishing 4th, this could be the boost they need to reclaim the title.
