Karmine Corp captures third European Masters title in a row

On May 7, Karmine Corp captured their third Amazon European Masters title in a row after defeating their French rivals LDLC OL 3-1. With this win, the Blue Wall avenged their loss suffered during the 2022 LFL Spring Split playoffs.

LDLC OL opened things up with a victory in the first game of this best of five in a contested affair. The early game and the laning phase did not see either team get a sizable advantage. It’s in the mid to late game that LDLC OL started to take over the game with their scaling composition. Despite being far behind, KC tried to stay in the game by capitalizing on the errors of their opponents, but the lead for LDLC was too much to overcome. During this opening bout, Thomas “Exakick” Foucou stood out with his performance on Aphelios.

After losing the first duel, KC decided to go into second gear and take the next three games to win the Spring Split of the European Masters. The early game of the second round of this series saw Lucas “Cabochard” Simon-Meslet decimate his opponents on Camille. The veteran top laner had a score of 4 kills with no deaths at the 14-minute mark. With this lead, KC was able to secure many neutral objectives like the Dragon Soul and the Baron. The final moments of game 2 saw KC win a team fight and their mid laner, Lucas “Saken” Fayard got a quadra kill on Azir to tie the series 1-1.

The twenty-three years-old mid later continued on his path of destruction on the emperor of Shurima during the third game. He played a crucial part in the success of his team by applying poke and using his ultimate to win fights. He and Martin “Rekkles” Larsson both ended the third encounter deathless. With the ball rolling in their corner, the French powerhouse ended the series and took home their third European Masters championship.

With this third victory, Saken wrote his name in the history books as the first player to ever win the European Masters three times. On top of winning the competition with KC, he also took the Finals MVP title home.
