The ESL LoL Premiership just got a whole lot less RÄÄÄÄÄÄNDOM, as the recently qualified team with that name have found a new home with Irish esports organisation CycloneGG.
The ESL website has been updated to include the CycloneGG logo in place of what would have been RÄÄÄÄÄÄNDOMS’ spot in the groups.
It’s no surprise the RÄÄÄÄÄÄNDOMS team has been picked up. In our ESL Premiership preview & team roster roundup we highlighted the team as one of our wildcard picks for this split.
Although we are yet to have confirmation of the final roster, Tyrin has left the team as jungler since the qualifiers. The team surprised a few by placing into the ESL Premiership as one of the eight qualified teams, ahead of the likes of Choke Gaming.
“I’m ecstatic with the pick-up of this team, these players are very talented at their game. With an org backing them and bringing in a coach, I can only see success in this split for them.”
“I’m ecstatic with the pick-up of this team, these players are very talented at their game,” the org’s founder and owner, Cyclone Slak, told Esports News UK.
“With an org backing them and bringing in a coach, I can only see success in this split for them.”
CycloneGG is an Irish org formed in early 2016 and it seems this is the org’s first major foray into League of Legends.
It’s also the perfect time for Irish teams to enter the 2017 ESL UK spring split, with ESL making changes to better show that Irish teams and players are eligible.
CycloneGG already has teams and players in Smite, Overwatch, Call of Duty, Paladins and Hearthstone.
