Keep in mind that the new dark horse in EMEA VCT is the new dark horse

Published on

I start the new year with a rolling breakdown of every team taking off from this summer VCT. First, we have the ultimate dark horse in the competition, KCorp.

Karmine Corp, also known as KCorp, only came in in May 2022 to experience esports experience. The team were satisfied, securing top four in the 2022 VRL Fance Revolution Stage 2 event before finishing with a final finish in the following VRL Revolution Coupe De France.

After the team took the lead, players were benched and put up their work with no cash.

KCorp built a new European superteam.

In a surprise move, KCorp signed the veteran former CS:GO star, ScreaM, and a core member of the Team Liquids Valorant squad. ScreaM was signed by KCorp for their star player and not only to have a competitive advantage, but also to grow the highly successful team.

That enabled the team to retain both Shin and Newzera members of their original squad. Filling the other two spots, the team opted for a proposal to sign Nivera, the ScreaMs teammate from Team Liquid, and the former former CS:GO teammate.

The team heavily rely on ScreaMs’ ability to develop and mentor less experienced players in the squad as well as his team’s training in 2020. Since signing ScreaM, Team Liquid have always been one of Europe’s top teams, recently taking top eight in the 2022 Valorant Champions.

With the VCT kick-off next month, KCorp is suddenly one of the teams that watch as an ultimate dark horse.

Why was KCorp accepted in VCT?

Although KCorp won several major matches in the Valorant scene for a very short period, they remain well represented. One of the greatest players in the LFL, KCorps strong fan base, was driving the progression of the League of Legends League, which recently gained more than 100,000 viewers.

While everybody wanted to see the group in the European League of Legends LEC for now, fans must settle with a franchisee spot in Valorant.
