The all-female League of Legends team, Vaevictus, has been kicked from Russia’s LoL Continental League (LCL) due to bad results.
Riot Games Russia announced on February 10, the team had an “unacceptable level of competitiveness in a closed league” and team CrowCrowd will replace them in the LCL.
Vaevictus failed to win a single game in both the Spring and Summer Splits of 2019, ending with 14 losses. The team’s stats were the worst in the league, with an average of 27 deaths per game, 10 more than the next highest in the league.
The average game duration for team Vaevictus is 22 minutes and 11 seconds, which is the shortest duration in the LCL.
Aside from the poor performance and obvious skill difference the team has had in the LCL, Vaevictus members were on the receiving end of descrimination by other teams in the LCL and the viewers.
Both team RoX and Vega Squadron received warnings from Riot Russia for gender discrimination and a lack of sportsmanship. They would either play off-meta characters, ban 5 support characters, and even prolonging the game when they are able to destroy the nexus.
CrowCrowd will be replacing team Vaevictus, the team has been competing in the semi-professional leagues since 2016, they will finally get the chance to play on a bigger stage. The team is owned by former professional player Kirill “Likkrit” Malofeev, who was a part of the famous Albux Lox Luna roster.
Vaevictus has a chance to re-enter the LCL as the team can compete in the Open Cup which offers them an opportunity to join the league next year.
