Since the dawn of Rocket League esports, Franch natives have dominated the scene, firstly with the ever-lasting Alexandre "Kaydop" Courant and his three-peat of World Championships. Most recently, it was Team BDS conquering 2022 with a trio of blue, white, and red flags on their backs.

However, 2023 has seen the momentum shift in favour of Brits competing in America, with GenG's exciting English doublet taking over the states and throwing the regional debate into an absolute frenzy.

But natural order could soon be restored, as the Rocket League esports prodigy known as Alexis "zen" Bernier is officially unbanned from competing in the RLCS and after turning 16. He's set to step into Team Vitality's team and cause mayhem.

Zen Turns 16 And Is Officially Unbanned From RLCS Action

As one of the most exciting talents in the world, zen has been forced to bide his time to step into the scene, as the future superstar was banned back in February 2022. 

The ban came into play as he illegally substituted himself into the RLCS X - Fall: Europe Regional 1 Closed Qualifier, taking a place on Space Knights despite being underage at the time.

Now though, zen's ban has been lifted as he's turned 16. Having already been snapped up by Team Vitality during his banned tenure, the French phenom is ready to step into their starting roster.

Zen Set for Team Vitality Step-Up in the Spring Split

Having been signed by Vitality before the RLCS 2022-23 season in preparation for his ban to be lifted, zen is expected to be cast straight into the team for the Spring Split in May.

It's not yet known who he will replace in Vitality's roster, but the pressure will be on for the French to perform in the Winter Invitational and the Winter Major with zen snapping their heels and a World Championship spot on the cards.

The rising star has showcased his talent by winning a string of non-Psyonix-backed events but will finally get to stun the world in the final split of the season and beyond.
