Velocity Gaming Officially Announces Valorant Roster for 2023 Season
A couple of overseas talents to bolster its lineup.
After weeks of teasing its revamped lineup, Velocity Gaming has finally announced its new roster for the 2023 competitive season. The majority of it remains the same except for two changes, the addition of international players Domagoj "Doma" Fancev and Adam "ec1s" Eccles, benching of Saksham "Deadly10" Aurangabadkar.
Long story short, all rumors and speculations from the beginning were accurate. Now that the new Velocity Esports lineup has officially been revealed it can be said out loud that on paper this looks like the best Valorant team from the South Asian region, not considering Global Esports because it is already a franchised team.
Velocity Gaming adds Doma and ec1s to complete the Valorant roster revamp
Earlier today on 21st Febraury, Velocity Gaming finally announced its complete Valorant lineup for the 2023 season including the upcoming Valorant Challengers League South Asia.
As expected, the two overseas players Doma and ec1s were added to the team while Deadly10 was moved to the inactive roster. The complete Velocity Gaming team is as follows,
Adam "ec1s" Eccles - IGL
Domagoj "Doma" Fancev
Sagnik "Hellff" Roy
Debanjan "DEATHMAKER" Das
Karan "Excali" Mhaswadkar
Anuj "Amaterasu" Sharma - Substitute
David "Dav" Miljanić - Coach
Both the international players have been added to the active lineup, ec1s acting as the shotcaller for the side having captained top-tier organizations like Team Liqiud, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and 100 Thieves, where as Doma would be taking on the role of a lurker having formerly played for teams like Fnatic and MAD Lions.
As for Amaterasu, he still seems to be part of Velocity Gaming but is not part of the playing five for now. He will be with the team as the sixth / substitute player as he is still recovering from his back injury which will require a couple more months.
The team would be seen in action sometime in March later this year at the VCL SA. On paper, this lineup is the strongest Valorant team from the South Asia region and it will be interesting to see how they go on to perform once they start competing.
