s0m Leaves Gen.G, Transitioning to VALORANT With Daps and Chet

That’s one less player! As s0m leaves Gen.G, he joins former teammate Damian ‘daps’ Steele and former 100 Thieves coach Chet ‘Chet’ Singh in a move to Valorant.

The 18 year old will make the shift from CS:GO to Riot’s competitive shooter along with his former teammate Damian ‘daps’ Steele, who left the active roster in September, and former 100 Thieves coach Chet ‘Chet’ Singh. Together, they will assemble under the NRG jersey.

While the final team is yet to be complete, Brandon ‘Ace’ Winn, of Apex Legends fame, will also be a part of their line-up.

s0m Leaves Gen.G To Join A Roster With A Lot Of Achievements

A Win at DreamHack Open Anaheim and at the ESL: Road to Rio North America are just some of the achievements this roster has under it’s belt.

The team has been struggling to adjust to the departure of daps, their in-game leader, especially since their last outing as a five-man squad at ESL One Cologne 2020. Youngster Danny ‘cxzi’ Strzelczyk is stepping in as substitute for the remainder of ESL Pro League Season 12, however.

Finding the spotlight through his outstanding performances on ESEA and FPL, Sam ‘s0m’ Oh quickly became one of North America’s most famous ‘pug-stars’, having his first experience in team Counter-Strike on Swole Patrol before he joined Envy on 2019.

It was then that Gen.G entered the scene, with s0m making the cut as part of the team headlined by Major Champion Timothy ‘autimatic’ Ta.

With Flashpoint Season 2 starting in November 9th and Gen.G being one of the founding members of the competition, the team will have one month to find two suitable replacements and to compete against teams such as Cloud9, Envy, MAD Lions and MIBR.
