As Renegades prepares to compete in the North American League Championship Series (LCS), it’s put together another team on the other side of the Atlantic.
Renegades Banditos will compete in the European Challenger Series (EUCS), with the team looking to repeat the feat of teams like Dignitas in qualifying teams for the LCS in North America and Europe.
Headlining the team will be former Alliance, Elements and Lemondogs AD Carry Erik “Tabzz” van Helvert and Matthew “Impaler” Taylor, the former Team Coast jungler.
Taylor is one of three British players in the lineup, with Marc “Caedrel” Lamont and Barney “Alphari” Morris completing the trio. Aleksi “Hiiva” Kaikkonen will round out the roster in the support position.
Marcin “Xaxus” Maczka and “DxAlchemist” Bui will also join the team as substitutes for top and mid respectively.
The team will compete in the EUCS playoffs, looking to qualify for League of Legends‘ second division in their first go. Their North American counterparts did just that last year, qualifying for the 2015 summer season and finishing second before defeating Team Coast in the playoffs to win their spot.
