Today, we announce the biggest VALORANT roster moves that no one saw coming. We’re beyond excited to welcome Žygimantas ‘nukkye’ Chmieliauskas, Auni ‘AvovA’ Chahade and Jose Luis ‘koldamenta’ Aranguren Herrero as the newest members of our VALORANT roster.
After not qualifying for VALORANT Masters in Iceland, we knew we needed to take the team in a new direction. We’re not looking to be on the sidelines, we’re looking to be the best. With these changes, we’re ready to take on the next challenge and win VALORANT Masters 2 in our home city of Berlin.

Maikturtle, manager for the Valorant team, had this to say about the changes,
“I’m very excited to have nukkye, avova, and koldamenta on the team. They bring a lot of experience, spirit and firepower, and I know that they’ll excel in this new project.”
With this change, we part ways with Patryk ‘paTiTek’ Fabrowski, Ardis ‘ardiis’ Svarenieks Aleksander and ‘zeek’ Zygmunt.
paTiTek and ardiis have been with us since the beginning and were an integral part of our dominance in the IGNITION Series throughout 2020. Zeek came on at the start of 2021 and helped us secure a top-four finish in First Strike and helped us frag our way to a 1st place finish in Red Bull Home Ground. We’re extremely grateful for everything they’ve helped us accomplish and can’t wait to meet them again on the server.
You won’t have to wait long to see the new roster in action. We’ll be jumping on the server for the LVP Rising Series #2 Open Qualifiers on Saturday, June 5th. Be sure to tune in and cheer us on!
