Alliance has announced its first-ever Valorant roster and they will be competing at the Valorant Champions Tour.
The first bout of matches for the new roster will begin at the upcoming European VCT qualifiers on February 4.
The team is joined by James “Banks” Banks as the GM and Mitch “MitchMan” McBride as an analyst.

Alliance has made their way into Valorant. The European team has just finalized its roster with players and an analyst joining in two days after Enzo “Fearoth” Mestar signed with the team as the captain and IGL. Thomas “kAdavraa” Johner, Tautvydas “Hype” Paldavicius, Niels “luckeRRR” Jasiek, and Vilius “krea6on” Malinauskas also joined the roster recently, which makes Alliance’s first Valorant roster complete. The team will be looking to compete in the Valorant Champions Tour’s European qualifiers on Feb 4. Alliance is among the many high-profile esports organizations making their way into Valorant ahead of the Champions Tour. Earlier this month, we had OG reportedly singing the Monkey Business Valorant team, and we can expect both teams to go head-to-head sometime soon. 

Alliance Esports Roster

The new roster features the following players, staff, and analysts: 

  1. Thomas “kAdavraa” Johner
  2. Tautvydas “Hype” Paldavicius
  3. Niels “luckeRRR” Jasiek
  4. Vilius “krea6on” Malinauskas
  5. Enzo “Fearoth” Mestar (Captain) 
  6. James “Banks” Banks (General Manager)
  7. Mitch “MitchMan” McBride (Analyst)

History of Alliance's Valorant Players

Hype, kAdavraa, and krea6on have been competing in Valorant events since the game’s release. They recently got the opportunity to serve a trial period with Alliance before being signed into the roster. They are excited to be a part of Alliance with Hype saying, "I had just finished working on a job with my Dad when the VALORANT beta had just been released. I was waiting for another job to begin but could get a bit of time on VALORANT to test it out and see how fun it was. It was brilliant, and I invested all of my time into the game. I was hungry and wanted to compete.”

Fearoth and MitchMan built the team over the last few months, and it will be interesting to see how their journey unfolds in the European leg of the Valorant Champions Tour. Earlier this month, their DOTA 2 rivals OG reportedly stepped into the world of Valorant. The two-time International champions signed the Monkey Business and competed in the Red Bull Home Ground event this week. There is yet to be an official announcement from OG, and we have only received hints from the organization and Monkey Business being OG’s former name lends more credence to the reports. It will be a treat for fans to watch the long-time DOTA 2 rivals compete against each other in Riot’s new shooter that has been making waves in esports.
