Vitality has officially announced this Thursday their entrance into VALORANT, signing the roster that was last seen playing under the moniker “FrenzyGoKill” during last week’s Red Bull Home Ground tournament.
This news comes just one day after fellow esports giant Fnatic revealed their brand new VALORANT roster, having finally provided a house to the squad that previously played under the SUMN FC name.
Making up the bulk of the roster will be the Lithuanian trio of Lukas ‘feqew’ Petrauskas, Vakaris ‘vakk’ Bebravičius and Jokūbas ‘ceNder’ Labutis. The two former members of eXile eSports, feqew and ceNder, will now link up with vakk, a talent that elevated nolpenki to a spot in the First Strike play-offs after a major upset against Guild Esports.
The French organisation has also recruited two compatriots to complete this new VALORANT roster: Bayram ‘bramz’ Redjeb and Ouali ‘M4CHINA’ Manset. Bramz first came into the spotlight playing under the orgless squad of Opportunists, being teamless since September of last year.
M4CHINA was part of the Purple Cobras squad that managed to qualify for the main event of First Strike: Europe. With the team dissolving on the 8th of December, the 25-year-old will now have his first experience under a contract.
Andrey ‘Fragon’ Katz will be coaching the first ever Team Vitality VALORANT roster. After a career in professional Overwatch representing the likes of Team Israel and Triumph, the Israeli had his first experience in Riot’s shooter as a one week trial coach for FunPlus Phoenix.
Using “FrenzyGoKill” as a place-holder, the team had its first big experience at the Red Bull Home Ground event, being eliminated by the eventual champions G2 Esports at the Quarter-Finals stage. Their goals will now be set on the VALORANT Champions Tour circuit, currently undergoing its first European Qualifier.
