If you’ve been following us on our social media platforms, it’s no secret that Manneten is on a bootcamp with us. So, we’d formally like to announce that Manneten will be replacing PHYRN, as PHYRN decided to step down from the roster due to struggling to find a balance between playing fulltime and keeping his school in check.
We respect PHYRN’s decision and wish him good luck for his future endeavours and thank him for his services. Replacing PHYRN was a difficult task since he had gelled very well with the team’s style of play. So we were looking for someone who can click with our gameplay while adding his own energy and skills to it. EPZZ, LATEKS and sebbz already knew a well known Overwatch player who’s also synonymous with insane aim shots. We decided to give Manneten a chance and things ticked off well!
Here’s what the IGL and the Coach has to say on the latest signing: IGL, LATEKS: “PHYRN decided to take a break from competitive play to focus on university. Both me and EPZZ knew Manneten from our time in Overwatch and he’s an irl friend of sebbz. We gave him a shot and things clicked instantly. He’s a very calm player that brings a lot of experience and maturity to the team.”
Team coach, sebbz: “I have played with Manneten since the start of beta both with infected and YaB and I know how much of a hard worker he is, he also has a lot of experience coming from the top Overwatch scene and has always had insane aim, I’m very hyped to have Manne onboard”
Here’s our final VALORANT lineup:
Sebastian ‘sebbz’ Fredriksson – Coach
Oliwer ‘LATEKS’ Fahlander – IGL
Tim ‘Manneten’ Bylund
Linus ‘Limpone’ Wecksell
Gabriel ‘shew’ Gessle
Andreas ‘EPZZ’ Vallvingskog
