H1ber joined KOI in early January as the organization entered VALORANT. Alongside the core of UCAM Toikers in Ladislav “Sacake” Sachr, Oskar “PHYRN” Palmqvist and Gabriel “Shrew” Gessle aswell as Gabriel “starkk” Marques from SAW, H1ber and Co. took on the EU VCT Stage 1 Qualifiers. The team showed promise for a newly formed team but was eliminated top 8 in qualifier one and the top 32 in the second qualifier.

After not qualifying for the Closed qualifier or the EMEA challengers event, KOI was invited to participate in the first stage of VRL Spain: Rising. The team ended the regular season with a record of 6–3, taking a second-place finish. This finish qualified them for the playoffs where they would have a chance to play in the VCT Promotion tournament. KOI would end the stage with a top 4 finish at the event, being eliminated to the eventual winners of Rebels Gaming at a 2–3 scoreline.

With their elimination, KOI’s first season of VCT had come to a close. But not for H1ber as he was called upon to play for Fnatic in place of Nikita “Derke” Sirmitev at Masters Reykjavik. His substitution was due to Derke’s positive COVID-19 test which made him unable to play in the group stage of the event. Fnatic suffered a 0–2 loss to Ninjas in Pyjamas, then ZETA Division which in turn, eliminated them from the event.

Looking towards the next season of VCT, H1ber is set to join Team Vitality alongside Santeri “BONECOLD” Sassi, Kamil “baddyG” Graniczka, Nathan “nataNk” Bocqueho as earlier reported by Jakub “frs” Czapran of THESPIKE.GG and Dexerto.

KOI’s current roster is:

  • Ladislav “Sacake” Sachr
  • Gabriel “starkk” Marques
  • Oskar “PHYRN” Palmqvist
  • Gabriel “Shrew” Gessle
  • ThoR(Substitute)
  • Antonio “Aska” Lozano (Head coach)
  • Sergio “sikako” Rodriguez (Assistant coach)

And that’s amazing dude, don’t get me wrong, what I’m saying is that is not like you’re here just working for free, to get something you gotta start from the bottom

Keep it up

I believe they get paid a small amount per article. Not too sure the price or anything.
