Andrei “Odoamne” Pascu won the League of Legends (LoL) European Championship Summer of 2022 with his team, Rogue, making history as the first Romanian League of Legends champion.
The LEC (League European Championship) is the recognized competition for LoL in Europe. Over 60 million people worldwide have played this MOBA game. The award is a 200,000 euro prize pool, the LEC being the biggest game-specific tournament in Europe. Upon taking the trophy home, Andrei and his team were able to play for the first time in the global LoL championship held in the US.
On September 11, the LEC final was held in Malmo, Sweden, in front of more than 10,000 people and millions of online viewers. Rogue defeated G2 3-0 because of a strong performance by the women and took home the grand prize of 80,000 euros.
