Unicorns of Love Release Their Entire LCL Roster


On October 11th, the organization announced that the entire team was released by mutual agreement. Vladislav “BOSS” Fomin, Kirill “AHaHaCiK” Skvortsov, Lev “Nomanz” Yakshin, Andrey “Argonavt” Yakovlev and Aleksandr “SaNTaS” Lifashin have all left UOL.

“We accept the fact that players need constant development, and winning everything in the LCL for three years… it’s time to move to the next level,” the organization said. “It’s time to try yourself in Europe—in EU Masters and in LEC.”

Unicorns of Love’s Recent History

The team has won four LCL titles from the beginning of 2020. They have always been the CIS representative at every international tournament since then. In Worlds 2020, UOL managed to qualify for the Groups Stages, although they weren’t able to advance further.

This year, they went to Iceland for both the Mid-Season Invitational and Worlds 2021. However, the results weren’t that great.
At MSI, Unicorns of Love failed to reach the next stage. Considering that their group was composed of 3 teams, due to the VCS team GAM Esports being unable to participate, the Unicorns had almost a guaranteed ticket to the Rumble Stage. That, though, did not happen, as they lost the tie-breaker to the LCO Representative Pentanet.GG.

Making LoL Betting on PGG was one of the best chances fans had this year to earn some good cash, and many other chances will come in the future, with more and more esports tournaments around the globe.

At Worlds 2021, things got even worse. During the play-ins stage, UOL never seemed like a strong team that could compete for a spot in the Groups Stage. They only won one match against Cloud9, but then UOL failed to win yet another tie-breaker, this time against the PCS team Beyond Gaming.

The announcement marks a new chapter for all the players, considering that everyone has played in UOL for two years. The only exception is ADC Argonavt, who joined at the beginning of the summer split. Unfortunately, they will all have to find a new home.
