French player Théo “Zoelys” Le Scornec is set to join the LEC as a rookie support player for Infinite Reality’s team in 2024. Zoelys, who previously played in the EMEA Masters, has reached a verbal agreement with Infinite Reality’s Team in the LoL EMEA Championship (LEC).
Zoelys’ move to the LEC marks another player making the jump from the ERL ecosystem to the premiere European league. According to a report by Sheep Esports, Zoelys was one of the most sought-after support players in the offseason. He was considered by Worlds participant Fnatic before they signed Korean import Jun, and Karmine Corp had plans to add him to their LFL Academy team.
In 2023, Zoelys played as the starting support for LDLC OL in the LFL, winning the domestic title in Spring and reaching the top 8 at EMEA Masters Spring. However, the team struggled in the Summer split, finishing 9th in the standings. After LDLC OL ended their partnership with Olympique Lyonnais and exited the esports scene, Zoelys was left without a team.
Zoelys briefly joined Karmine Corp to play in the Coupe de France, alongside veteran player Jiizuke and head coach Yamatocannon. Yamatocannon is set to become the head coach for the KCorp team in 2024.
Zoelys is expected to team up with ADC player Comp, who is still under contract with Infinite Reality until the end of 2024. With Larssen’s reported renewal and Markoon’s addition to the roster, Infinite Reality’s LEC team is finalizing its lineup for next year.
Zoelys’ move to the LEC as a starting support player for Infinite Reality is an exciting development. It highlights the growing trend of players rising from the ERL ecosystem to compete in the premiere European league. With the addition of Zoelys, Infinite Reality’s LEC team is shaping up to be a formidable contender in the upcoming season.
