Rocket League gains a large organization in Karmine Corp
Karmine Corp is a relatively new organization, founded in March of 2020. The organization quickly grew in popularity in the French-speaking League of Legends community and has since been growing rapidly. They were already rumored to be joining Rocket League soon and did not disappoint with their announcement.
The trio of Stake, AztraL and itachi are serious contenders for in the Rocket League competitive community. They already put down impressive individual and team-based performances in previous seasons. Vodafone Giants ultimately fell outside the top six in the RLCS X Championships, but with an upgrade like the mechanical monster that is AztraL, the sky looks to be the limit for the three talented players. The latter is often placed as one of the best players in the game by his fellow professionals. He may not yet have an RLCS World Championship title to his name, but that may be a matter of time.
The crowd in the stadium repeatedly cheered loudly when the expansion into Rocket League and its players were revealed. The Twitch chat, as seen in this clip, was also extremely hyped. Karmine Corp is sure to bring an excited fan base along with it into Rocket League.
The team is also officially sponsored by tire manufacturer Michelin. Karmine Corp will compete in RLCS Season 11, which is expected to start later this year. Psyonix promised to reveal more at the beginning of August of 2021.
