Team Secret Signs Bren Esports' Former Valorant Roster
European esports organization, Team Secret (TS), has announced its entry into Valorant with the former Bren Esports roster. TS has been in the esports scene since 2014 and expanded to PUBG Mobile, R6: Siege, Wild Rift, League of Legends and now Valorant. The team consists of former Bren Esports players, who left the Filipino esports organization after failing to join the Valorant Masters Berlin event due to visa acquisition issues. The team is still in contention to be a part of Valorant Champions via the APAC Last Chance Qualifiers.
Team Secret Valorant roster overview
The new Team Secret Valorant roster has been dominant in the Philippines since its entry to Valorant in August 2020. The team won the Valorant First Strike event in December 2020 with Bren Esports and it continued to impress this year at the Valorant Champions Tour. However, the team ran into issues when acquiring visas and will not be able to attend Valorant Masters Berlin.
Despite the roster being unable to compete in the upcoming Valorant Masters, Riot Games has awarded the team the appropriate circuit points for qualifying for the event. The team can still become a part of the 16 teams heading to Valorant Champions as it is eligible to compete in the APAC Last Chance Qualifer later this year.
The new Team Secret roster features:
Jessie "JessieVash" Cuyco
Jayvee "DubsteP" Paguirigan
Jim "BORKUM" Timbreza
Kevin "Dispenser" Te
Riley "witz" Go
Following the departure of the roster from Bren Esports, the team said in an official statement, "It has truly been a rollercoaster ride for the Bren Esports Valorant Team. From slowly dominating the local competitive scene to breaking barriers as the first PH Branded Esports Team to win a SEA Championship, the Bren Esports VALORANT team will always have a place in the history books.”
Team Secret has been expanding in Southeast Asia with its entry into Valorant. The team recently invested in a League of Legends: Wild Rift roster based in the Philippines as well as a PUBG Mobile team in Malaysia. It will be interesting to see if the former Bren Esports roster continues to dominate the Southeast Asian scene under a new banner.
