The news came as a shock in the League of Legends universe. At the end of an eventful press conference, Kamel "Kameto" Kebir and Amine "Prime" Mekri, the co-founders of Kcorp, announced to the public that Adam Maanane, better known as KC Adam, is leaving Karmine Corp to join Fnatic!
Having recently won the French League of Legends Championship and the European Masters, Kcorp has made a big splash in the professional Esport world and was expecting a lot of approaches for their top players. After almost a year of loyal service, Adam has decided to move up to the next level by joining Fnatic, a team competing in the LEC, the European elite of League of Legends.
Lucky7Bonus takes a look back at the major news in the Esport universe over the last few days, during which we learned that KC Adam was leaving Kcorp to join Fnatic, for a fee of around €500,000.
What is the Kcorp?
The Kcorp, also known as Karmine Corp, is a professional Esport structure, mainly working on the famous video game League of Legends. This franchise was created in March 2020 by Kameto, who originally gave his name to the project, and took a new turn in Late 2020 by integrating the youtuber Prime, which gave a new impetus to this team.
Even if at the beginning the Kcorp was only supposed to join the second French division of League of Legends, the structure quickly reached the highest national level. Success was immediate for the Kcorp as the franchise won the LFL and the EU Masters back to back, making the Karmine Corp the first team to do that!
The exceptional results of this team, combined with the proximity of each player on social networks, have allowed the Kcorp to create a real craze around them, so much so that tens of thousands of followers, self-proclaimed "ultras", follow the news and confrontations of this team with passion and fervor. The history of the Kcorp has only just begun and the atmosphere promises to be electric when the competitions with the public resume.
What does the future hold for the Kcorp?
During this press conference during which we learned that Adam was leaving the Kcorp, Kameto and Amine took the opportunity to talk about the future of the structure as well as the potential projects and future ambitions of this Esport team.
Joining the LEC?
Having recently sent a message to the whole of Europe by winning the final of the European Masters, a sort of second continental division of League of Legends, Kcorp can now legitimately dream of joining the LEC, the Champions League of this discipline. What was only a pipe dream a few months ago has now become a major goal for the franchise. However, money being omnipresent in this environment, the accession to the LEC is unfortunately not only due to sporting performances.
Indeed, the major problem preventing the Kcorp from reaching the LEC is that the latter is a closed line of 10 teams. Unless a franchise drops out, it is not possible to enter the league directly. A place should become available in the coming weeks as Schalke 04, the iconic German club that entered Esport several years ago, is reportedly considering withdrawing from the LEC. On the other hand, money is once again the key to joining this closed league as the entry fee is estimated to be around €20,000,000!
Exporting to other disciplines?
The franchise has quickly become a success, so it is only natural that requests and proposals are pouring in. The two directors have admitted that they are thinking of trying the adventure in other disciplines. Having already conquered France and Europe on League of Legends, and having already put a foot in the middle of Trackmania, the Kcorp feels ready to take up the challenge on new games, thinking big: " If we come up with a new game we want to aim for the top, worldwide if possible. We're going to take our time," said Kameto in a press conference. The streamer even admitted to being very interested in the famous FPS Counter-Strike. Is it enough to hope that Kcorp will try its luck on CS: GO?

This will take place in early August in Stockholm, Sweden.
