The Kolab Koalas capped off a perfect first season in the Latte Esports League, capturing the first ever League of Legends Varsity Series Championship Title after sweeping the tournament this past weekend. The Koalas, behind team members: Kevin ‘Ponkins’ Caponpon , Myrbene ‘Aurora’ Maranan , Tiffany ‘Tiff’ Cortez, Masaki ‘AIM4’ Tsuyboyama , and Isaac ‘Subliminal’ David, with alternate Alex ‘teeheeowo7’ Lee.

*League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) released in 2009*

The Koalas ran rampant through out the season, which started in October, before claiming the title to no one’s real surprise. Caponpon, the teams dedicated jungler, developed a reputation over the course of the season as plenty started referring to him as “Godkins” having accumulated only two deaths all season.

Caponpon would continue his dominant play in the semifinals against McDonald’s forever, who pushed the Koalas into their longest game of the season (over 40 minutes).

The biggest upset came from MHS turning away the FD Flakers 2-0 in a best of three in the semifinals to face off against the Koalas for the Latte Title.

In the finals, attack damage carry (ADC) Tiffany ‘Tiff’ Cortez would set the tone in game one against MHS with two triple kills to cap off a perfect 10-0-4 game playing Miss Fortune. Cortez would continue to close out the finals in style with a clean 4-0-3 game in Game 2 with ‘Ponkins’ totalling 7-0-7.

The talk of game aside from the presence of Caponpon was the support role played by David, using a relatively new support character Rell, who was just released earlier this month, which provided his team a nice boost.

There will be an All-Star Game featuring the best players from the league in the coming weeks!
