It was only yesterday that we reported on FunPlus Phoenix releasing its Valorant roster, after missing out on the partnership roles offered up by Riot Games. Well, shortly after that news, it was revealed that the team will be staying together, as the roster has been acquired by Natus Vincere, one of the EMEA regions partnered organisations.

It should be said that the roster will have a few minor changes, in that Ardis "ardiis" Svarenieks will not be coming with his former team and instead will be heading to a new region to compete, whereas Mehmet "cNed" Yağız İpek will be joining in his place.

This means that the team will look as follows:

  • Kyrylo "ANGE1" Karasov

  • Mehmet "cNed" Yağız İpek

  • Andrey "Shao" Kiprsky

  • Pontus "Zyppan" Eek

  • Dmitry "SUYGETSU" Ilyushin

We can expect the team to make its first full appearance at the G-Loot Valorant Clash, which will be an online-only event between November 25-27.
