Esports Insider says: Many European fans may be familiar with ROCCAT because of the brand that once had the League of Legends team in EU LCS. Since its dissolution, the company has kept relatively quiet within sports, especially in terms of partnership, so this is a welcome surprise for a partner from a company with LCS. It will be interesting to see how many ROCCAT brands will be integrated into LCS, as the multi-year contract certainly covers a lot of basics.
