The League Championship Series is coming, but Team Roccat does not have a single player for the event.
This was the result of an unanticipated exodus of their entire LOL team roster.
The mass departure began when jungler Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski and support Oskar “VandeR” Bogdan accepted a deal to H2K Gaming for the 2016 season, with head coach Jakob “YamatoCannon” Mebdi also reportedly considering a move.
Today, mid laner Erlend “Nukeduck” Våtevik Holm left the organization just months after renewing his contract for the next season.
Holm has found himself a home at another LCS squad for next year, according to the Roccat Facebook account.
Meanwhile, the team had also loaned their remaining players, Etienne “Steve” Michels and Rasmus “MrRallez” Skinneholm to an unnamed Challenger squad
In other words, Roccat does not have a single player to carry them in the LCS.
Boasting aggressive and exciting overtures to some of the best players in Europe during offseason, the future looks bleak for Roccat’s LCS hopes.
