Team Vitality have announced their entrance into the competitive Valorant scene with an all European roster, days after Fnatic did the same.
Like Fnatic, Team Vitality elected to sign their Valorant roster from a fully formed team, “FrenzyGoKill.” The European team entered the scene in early January at the Red Bull Home Grounds, making an impressive run to the quarterfinals. Ultimately, they fell 0-2 to G2 Esports despite taking seventeen rounds across the best of three series.
Team Vitality’s current roster consist of Bayram “bramz” Ben Redjeb, Jokūbas “ceNder” Labutis, Lukas “feqew” Petrauskas, Ouali “M4CHINA” Manset, Vakaris “vakk” Bebravičius and coach Andrey “FrAgOn” Katz. These players have play on teams including Purple Cobras, eXiLe eSports, Opportunists and nolpenki, while their coach previously came from FunPlus Phoenix.
Team Vitality look to dominate the Valorant Champions Tour
With the exception of bramz and fragon, Valorant the first game the rest of the team has played professionally. Bramz started his career in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on a C-Tier team by the name of Hyper4mance. Meanwhile, Fragon is best known for coaching both Triumph, an Overwatch Contenders team, and Team Israel during the 2019 Overwatch World Cup.
V FOR VALORANT! 🤩
