Alliance Is Looking to Rebuild Its Valorant Roster
Alliance is looking to rebuild its Valorant roster after a disappointing start to its journey in Valorant and failing to qualify for the Valorant Champions main event. The team had a very promising start in the beginning of 2021 after qualifying for Stage One Masters via the Europe (EU) Stage 1 Challengers 2 event. However, the team failed to earn the top spot at Stage One Masters EU and has not qualified for any other Masters event ever since. Alliance's General Manager, James Banks revealed that the team will retain its three core players, and it is currently looking for a Duelist and a Controller.
Alliance is looking for two new players to join the roster
Alliance will be retaining Enzo ‘Fearoth’ Mestari, Niels ‘luckeRRR’ Jasiek, and Tautvydas ‘hype’ Paldavicius as part of its core roster. James Banks revealed on his Twitter account that Thomas ‘kAdavra’ Johner is currently exploring other options. He added, “We needed to change things up (to) go reach where we wanted to and we can't thank kAda enough for the beast performances he constantly put up.”
Alliance has time to rebuild its roster as it is no longer eligible to qualify for VCT Masters 3 Berlin or the Valorant Champions main event. Riot Games is likely to reintroduce the Valorant Champions Tour in 2022, following its success this year. It remains to be seen which players are going to be picked up by Alliance to join the trio of Fearoth, luckeRRR, and hype.
Vilius ‘krea6oN’ Malinauskas was formerly part of the roster and he left the team on 26th Aug 2021. Alliance had previously trialed Elric ‘juseu’ Belland and Alexandre ‘xms’ Fortre, but they were not added to the main roster. The team will need two new players to fill the Duelist and Controller roles in order to have a full squad that is ready to compete again.
