Understanding the bullshit
The clash between Mad Lions Koi e Karmine Corp It started well before the game started. The fight started with a comment from the streamer and former LEC commentator, Caedrel, about the fans.
The energy and enthusiasm surrounding the LEC right now is the best I’ve ever seen. K-Corp and Mad fans brought so much noise and passion that every other team had to take it to another level
And because he said that the fans of Mad Lions Koi had offered this energy “only now”, the coach of ToughYamattoCannon, quipped saying:
I thought Koi was already here last year.
The comment heated up the networks, and received feedback from Ibai: Streamer and founder of Koi. Check out the comment:
Yes, we were in the LEC. Our co-stream usually had over 100k viewers on average. I imagine you realized at some point that we’ve always been in the top 1 on Twitch. Or were you too busy trying to trick another team into signing you?
The second week of LEC 2024 returns on January 20th with three more rounds of games. A KOI and Team Vitality were the only teams that had not won so far.
