A year after its creation, the future of KOI in League of Legends could take a significant step forward. As Alejandro Gomis has advanced «anonymous«, journalist of Blixthe organization of Ibai Llanos and Gerard Piqué would have reached an agreement with Rogue to be in the League of Legends European Championship (LEC). The club would reach the top European competition the same year as Team Heretics, which weeks ago made the purchase of Misfits Gaming’s place official.
According to anonymity, Rogue has negotiated with other teams such as Karmine Corp, Giants or Case Esports. However, the only negotiations that would have continued would be those of KOI. Rogue would have negotiated the purchase of 40% of the square with clubs like KCorp, but finally it would be the entity of Gerard Piqué and Ibai Llanos that would take the agreement to be in the LEC next year. If confirmed, Rogue’s academy would move to the Super League and the current structure of the first team would remain.
Currently the agreement would be waiting to be fully finalized and approved by Riot Games. At the moment, both organizations have not decided on the joint name with which it would compete. However, the alliance could go beyond League of Legends. According to Anonymous, Both clubs would also have included VALORANT in the negotiations, an electronic sport in which the two organizations made their requests to be part of the new franchise system. In addition, entities would be in the final phase of the acceptance process carried out by Riot Games.
