In the sprawling universe of esports, few stars shine as brightly as Karmine Corp. Born from the vision of famed French streamer, Kamel “Kameto” Kebir, this team rapidly shot to fame, amassing a massive and passionate fanbase in record time. As 2024 looms on the horizon, the LEC better prepare: Karmine Corp is set to redefine the game.
From Humble Beginnings to LFL Domination
Karmine Corp’s inception was rooted in Kameto’s desire to form an iconic organization. The team’s journey from its creation to the LFL stage was meteoric. Fuelled by impressive on-stage performances and unparalleled fan engagement, their rise was a sight to behold. Their journey wasn’t just about victories; it was a demonstration of the boundless power of the French faithful.
LEC’s Potential Saviour
The LEC has faced its fair share of challenges. A significant decline in viewership— a staggering 50 percent drop from the previous year— reflects fans’ growing discontent with the current league format. Enter Karmine Corp, a team whose impact on the European League ecosystem is nothing short of transformative. With its immense popularity in the EMEA Regional Leagues and staggering viewership numbers, this team promises a fresh wave of enthusiasm for the LEC broadcasts.

The Blue Wall Phenomenon
The influence of Karmine Corp’s fandom, affectionately known as the Blue Wall, is undeniably impactful. The EMEA Masters’ viewership figures tell a compelling story: a peak viewership of 108,000 without the Blue Wall, and a jaw-dropping peak nearing 300,000 when Karmine Corp took the stage. The numbers don’t lie: Karmine Corp brings with them a sea of dedicated fans, a veritable French viewing army.
Riot Games’ Berlin Studio: The Next Blue Sea?
Karmine Corp’s pull isn’t limited to online viewership. Riot Games’ Berlin studio might witness unprecedented attendance, reminiscent of the overwhelming turnout at events like the KCORP vs. The World tournament. Picture this: 28,000 supporters clad in blue, passionately cheering for their favorite team. The atmosphere, electric. The energy, contagious. 2024 might witness a resurgence of fans returning to the studio, driven by their love for Karmine Corp.
Colossal Clashes Await
Though the LEC boasts of giants like KOI, Fnatic, and G2 Esports, the entry of Karmine Corp might lead to some of the most anticipated clashes in esports history. Potential matchups, like KOI vs. Karmine Corp, could set new benchmarks in regular-season viewership.
