Top laner Lucas “Badlulu” Piochaud, jungler Jonas “Memento” Elmarghichi and support Oskar “Raxxo” Bazydło have reached a verbal agreement with Elyandra Esport to play in the Ligue Française de League of Legends for 2022, thanks to the team promotion last season, according to sources close to Upcomer.
With this move, Badlulu will play for the first time in a European Regional League. Last season he played in the second division of the French ERL with Solary Academy. He was also known as a TrackMania player for TeamPAX before starting his League of Legends career.
Memento will return to the league after playing with GameWard last season, where he finished in seventh place. He is a veteran player with a lot of experience as he played in the League of Legends European Championship (the European League of Legends Championship Series previously) with teams such as Giants Gaming, Team ROCCAT and FC Schalke 04.
Finally, with this verbal agreement, Raxxo will play in the support position. He is known for reaching the finals of European Masters spring 2020 with K1CK Esports, where they lost 3-20 against Team LDLC. This will be Raxxo’s first appearance in the LFL. Last month, he played for Axolotl Esports in the Iberian Cup.
Bot laner Liyu “Cody Sun” Sun and mid laner Kim “RangJun” Sang-joon are the remaining players of the roster as first reported by Upcomer Friday.
