Pentanet.GG announced it is exiting the League of Legends Circuit Oceania (LCO) on Friday, November 24, 2023. The news comes shortly after two other organisations announced their intentions to not compete in the Oceanic LoL league.

The future of League of Legends Circuit Oceania was put under question following the departure of several esports organisations from the league. This also leaves many players without a home for the 2024 season.


On Friday, one of the league’s best teams, Pentanet.GG announced it won’t be competing in the LCO in the 2024 season, leaving the room open for the league’s newcomers, Antic Esports. The announcement came just a day after Vertex Esports also unveiled its intentions to conclude its journey in the league.

Both Vertex Esports and Pentanet.GG unveiled they won’t be competing in the league after Chefs Esports Club sold its spot to Team Bliss. Chiefs Esports Club were one of the best LCO teams of recent years, having won back-to-back LCO Playoffs in the 2023 season, but will now be replaced by FURY Global.

Future of LCO Unclear


The departure of the three teams from the Oceanic LoL esports league left many wondering what the future holds in store for the region. While some teams stepped in to fill in the gaps left behind by the departed organisations, the LCO currently has only seven teams confirmed for the 2024 season.

Still, losing three of the best teams isn’t a good look for the Oceanic LoL league. The Chiefs are the most successful team of the last two years, with three LCO titles, whereas Vertex and Pentanet.GG were both regularly in contention for the LCO trophy. Moreover, Pentanet.GG secured the region’s best international placement at the Mid-Season Invitational 2021 when they placed fifth.

While the LCO will continue in 2024, the league seems much weaker. However, the departure of three teams leaves many of the top talents from the region available for pickup by other new squads entering the LCO.
