Louvre players have decided to go their separate ways on a high note after placing runner-up in The Esports Club Showdown yesterday, the team announced on Twitter.
The disbandment of Louvre takes place immediately after the end of The Esports Club Showdown, in which they finished runner-up after beating Global Esports, Alter Ego, and Velocity Gaming twice on their way to the grand final.
The first iteration of the Louvre roster first came together initially for fun by a group of close friends and has been on the radar since the first Stage of VCT in January. The first-gen lineup of Louvre consisted of Danial “RedKoh” Hakim, Joshua “joshh” Leow, Brandon “Haise” Loh, Bryce “bryce” Lee, and Eugene “S1Eugene” Woo.
Despite multiple changes over the course of eleven months and a significant alteration from their original iteration, Louvre had consistently ranked among the top five teams in the MY/SG region and qualified for seven out of nine VCT MY/SG Challengers this year.
After adding Tyler “Juicy” James as the final addition in the sixth seat, Louvre had been on a roll heading towards the end of the year, defeating some of the scene’s biggest names while being unsigned to any organization, including BOOM Esports, Team Secret, Velocity Gaming, Global Esports, and others, in a variety of tournaments.
“Almost one year later into LVR, We are now one of the most feared teams in SEA and ranked seven on VLR.gg. Trust the process. Everything will follow.
As we move on from LVR, I would like to say thank you, to everyone who joined and trusted me as a caller. Everyone trusted me no matter how bad things were going, and now we’re here. It’s insane how a group of friends can destroy pros. It’s crazy that we played for fun, and we dominated the scene still.”– Danial “RedKoh” Hakim said in his official statement.
Following multiple roster moves among teams in the region, it is likely that a section or more of the LVR players will soon find a new home, as the in-game leader also further elaborated on a “big announcements up ahead”.
Meanwhile, Henri “Flaring” Forichon has announced his free agency and is open to both local and international offers. Interested parties may contact the player through email ([email protected]) and Discord (Flaring#6738)
