True Rippers Esports reveals new Valorant lineup for the 2023 season

With just a few hours to go for the Valorant Champions League (VCL) 2023 South Asia to begin, True Rippers Esports has once again entered the competitive Valorant scene with a new international lineup.

In August 2022, the organization had dropped the final player from its former team, Simar "psy" Sethi, taking a step back from the game. Now, after a break of about seven months and having undergone a complete overhaul, True Rippers has finally returned to compete in the biggest Valorant tournament of South Asia.

The four Indian recruits are promising players who are hungry to showcase their true potential against some of the best teams from the region.

  • Pixelzz previously played for teams like Team Valor and Reckoning Esports, having a constant presence across several local tournaments in the country.

  • Techno seems to have been a part of a team called Chill Cord and this seems to be his big break after having gone through a lot of hard work and grinding.

  • Kaizen started his journey as part of the prestigious ROG Academy and from there he went on to play for teams like Aestrial Esports and Lethal Esports.

  • Whimp is one of the most experienced players in this lineup having played under the banner of teams like Samurai Esports, Team XO, and Revenant Esports in the past.

As for the two international players and the coach, together they bring a lot of raw firepower and high level gameplay to the team.

  • Aryu is a talented duelist who has played for Philippines based teams like Action PH and Lionne Esports, shifting his region in the hopes of competing in Ascension.

  • D1srupt is another experienced player from the Southeast Asian region who has played for several teams like Affinity Esports, DR Esports, Reform Esports, GR Gaming, Sky Encore Esports, and more.

  • Rabbet is a player turned coach who has played for teams like Rex Regum Qeon and GR Gaming. This is his first gig as a coach and hopefully he will come through shining to help the team out with their mental and tactics.

True Rippers Esports is one of the seven directly invited teams competing in the VCL 2023 South Asia. Their first match of the league stage is against MLT Esports, scheduled to take place on 20th March, Monday from 19:00 IST onwards.

It will be interesting to see how the team goes on to perform in this tournament with the new lineup that it has brought together for the current season.
