Peace Gaming joins the LCO for 2021

A new challenger has entered the league.

Less than a week out from the start of the new League of Legends Circuit Oceania, a new team has entered the league ⁠— Peace Gaming, who replaces Avant Gaming in 2021.

Peace Gaming, as well as the official LCO account, took to social media to share the organisation’s entry into the league, as well as their 2021 roster, on February 17.

Yao “Api” Jian-jing returns to the top lane for the newest Oceanic League of Legends org, swapping back to his original role after playing support for a year under Avant Gaming’s banners in 2020. He last played top lane while with VG Potential in 2019, in the Chinese LDL.

Thomas “LeeSA” Ma will play jungler, a role he excelled at last year with Avant.

James “Halo” Giacoumakis joins the organisation as a mid laner, having played for the defending Oceanic champions Legacy Esports after joining as a substitute in Split 2 of 2020.

Vincent “Violet” Wong joins as the teams starting bot laner. He previously shared time with Vincent “Gunkrab” Lin with Avant in 2020, but is expected to have full sway over the bot lane in his 2020 role. Newcomer “Chayon” joins the lineup as a substitute bot laner.

Finally, Ryan “Aladoric” Richardson returns to LoL pro play as the roster’s support.

The announcement that Peace would be joining the LCO in 2021 came just hours after Avant Gaming revealed it had been acquired by fellow League of Legends organisation the Dire Wolves in a shock sale.


The LCO stars next Tuesday. Peace will debut at 9pm AEDT. Catch the action live at twitch.tv/LCO.
