Revenant Esports has acquired rite2ace to bolster its Valorant lineup ahead of the 2023 season.
With this signing, Revenant Esports has expanded its lineup to a seven-man international Valorant roster.
The new Revenant Esports lineup will be seen in action at the upcoming Esportz Premier Series 2022, taking place in January 2023.

Just days after bidding farewell to Velocity Gaming, one of the esports veterans from the Indian competitive scene, Tejas "rite2ace" Sawant, has been signed by Revenant Esports in a bid to bolster its Valorant team ahead of the 2023 circuit.

The revered Sova main looks in solid shape as curtains draw to a close over the current season, having witnessed a fantastic year with Velocity Gaming and contributing to his former team winning multiple tournaments like VCC 2022: Stage 1, TEC Challenger Series 7, and Skyesports Pro Invitational - S2.

Additionally, rite2ace also got an opportunity to go up against against international players by qualifying for the VCT 2022: APAC Challengers Stage 1.

"It feels really amazing to join a team of Revenant Esports' caliber which has achieved unbelievable growth in such a short period of time," says rite2ace, "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in Valorant with my previous organization and look forward to this new chapter of my career."
