The Unicorns of Love and manager Romain Bigeard, adored by the League of Legends community for his colorful personality and wardrobe, have parted ways. Bigeard left, he said, because he received an offer he simply couldn’t turn down.
“10 years ago I had no clue esports even existed,” Bigeard said Saturday in a statement. “5 years ago I was a SC2 fan rarely playing LoL. 3 years ago I would have never imagined what it meant to work for an esports team. 2 months ago I would have never imagined leaving UOL. And still, today I am quitting probably one of the best jobs in the world. It has been a wonderful experience working with such great people like Jos and Sheepy. A family-sized company like UOL allows you to work in different fields as they have a limited amount of employees to perform all the tasks. From business to management, from coaching to social media, I had the chance to learn and try a lot of things while being surrounded by smart people. For that I thank you all.”
The Unicorns posted on the same day that they will be accepting applications to fill the position.
“With his energy and positive attitude he was the big motivator and won not only the hearts of all our fans but all people around,” UOL owner Jos Mallant and coach Fabian “Sheepy” Mallant said in a statement. “Beside all sadness, we are personally proud that UOL was able to give our friend Romain the right environment to develop and grow, which finally made this huge step in his career possible. We wish him all the best, luck, and a lot of fun in his new position.”
