Karmine Corp Valorant roster overview
Karmine Corp is an esports organization that was founded by French streamers Kamel “Kameto” Kebir and Zouhair “Kotei” Darji. The organization started its esports journey with League of Legends and it quickly became one of the most popular teams and broke viewership records in the Ligue Française de League of Legends (LFL). The organization is also invested in Trackmania, Rocket League and Teamfight Tactics.
The organization is now expanding into Valorant with the following players:
Amine “Amilwa” Saidi (in-game leader)
Jonathan “TakaS” Paupard
Michael “mikee” Lim
Alexis “Newzera” Humbert
Ryad “Shin” Ensaad
Coaches pm and ZE1SH are former members of Team Vitality with pm also being a former caster. The duo will be looking to guide the new roster to victory at the French VRL and the ongoing Valorant Champions Tour 2022 circuit. Karmine Corp won both European Master trophies in League of Legends and the organization will be looking to replicate its success from League of Legends in Valorant.
Shin and his teammates at Sector One were not able to qualify for Valorant Masters Reykjavik via the EMEA Challengers event but it is currently the top team at the French VRL after winning the Stage One championship.
With Stage Two qualifiers commencing in all regions, Karmine Corp has little time to prepare for the next international LAN event. Karmine Corp will have to make it through EMEA’s open qualifiers and Challenger events in order to make it to the next Masters event, which is rumored to take place in Berlin like last year.
