Karmine Corp is an esports organization founded by Kamel “Kameto” Kebir and Zouhair “Kotei” Darji, two French streamers. Those personalities helped Karmine Corp to quickly become a very popular organization. In League Of Legends the organization is breaking all the viewership records of the LFL, the league they’re playing in. While also present in Rocket League, Trackmania and Teamfight Tactics, Karmine Corp will now be a part of VALORANT.

Breaking viewership numbers and having a huge fanbase isn’t the only thing Karmine Corp is good at. In 2021, which was the first year where they could possibly reach that level of competition, Karmine Corp won both European Masters trophies.

Despite a loss in the VCT 2022: EMEA Challengers Promotion, Shin and his team Sector One have won the title of the Stage 1 of the French VRL. Joining him on the roster will also be Newzera and mikee, both coming from WYLDE. Additionally, former team BDS player TakaS will also be on the roster. Who the fifth player will be is currently unknown by our sources.

Pm and ZE1SH will be coaching the team, both are coming from Team Vitality. In 2021, pm also used to be a caster.

Before those acquisitions, Karmine Corp tried to sign former Team Vitality players Thomas “kAdavra” Johner and Bayram “bramz” Ben Redjeb as reported by neL. However both ended up with Team BDS.

Now it remains to be seen which fifth player will complete the roster and if Karmine Corp will be able to reproduce its success in VALORANT. Both in terms of trophies and in terms of fanbase.
