FaZe Clan Valorant signings news inbound! Earlier today, the prominent eSports organisation announced it’s first competitive Valorant signings as it joins the growing scene.
In a move you may have expected, FaZe Clan are joining competitive Valorant. With Valorant being the love-child of Overwatch, CS:GO, Siege, and… Other established eSports titles, it’s no wonder that it’s been so popular amongst those in the industry.
With this announcement, FaZe Clan have announced their first two official Valorant Pro Players: jasonR and Corey.
FaZe Clan Valorant Signings #1
Jason “jasonR” Ruchelski
JasonR is an ex-retired CS:GO pro, having played the title from mid-2015 through to early 2017. He found himself roles at Splyce and Optic Gaming throughout his career, operating as in-game leader on a number of occasions. After this, he retired from professional eSports and went into streaming. It seems as though FaZe Clan have tempted him back to the top level. Let’s just hope he can perform!
Faze Clan Valorant Signings #2
Corey “Corey” Nigra
Corey is primarily an Overwatch player. When not competing in the Overwatch World Cup, Corey played in the Overwatch League for LA Gladiators for a while. He rose up through their academy team, Gladiators Legion, and after playing for LA Gladiators, he moved to Washington Justice for a stint. He has an Overwatch World Cup win under his belt but retired from professional Overwatch in 2019.
Corey, unlike jasonR, does have some experience at competitive Valorant. He took part in Twitch Rivals as a part of Team Dizzy. Let’s hope this experience will help him fit into FaZe Clan’s strategy for the title.
The T1 x Nerd Street Gamers Valorant Showdown Kicks Off Tomorrow
Hosted by Samsung Odyssey, T1 is putting together a Valorant showdown that features a number of eSports organisations. Cloud9, 100 Thieves, and now FaZe Clan are just three of the organisations that have submitted teams. It looks to be another entry in what I can imagine will be a long line of Valorant competitions to come.
This will also be Corey’s debut for FaZe Clan, so hopefully he puts on a good show!
