Today we met the last player of the VALORANT section in Team Heretics, which was established this month. It turned out to be Auni “AvovA” Chahade, whom the rest of the team had been testing over the past two weeks — and they were obviously happy enough with the Dane that they decided to keep him permanently.
Christian “loWel” Garcia Antoran was the first to come under the wings of Heretics. The experienced Spaniard has competed on the CS: GO scene for years and took part in two Majors under the mousesports flag. Later he also played in HellRaisers, where he met Žygimantas “nukkye” Chmieliauskas, a Lithuanian, with whom he will now perform again, but already in TH.
The next seats were taken by Dustyn “niesoW” Durnas, competing in Apex Legends, and the already mentioned AvovA, who, like loWel and nukkye, was a former Counter-Strike player. The last place went to Melih “pAura” Karaduran, who has much less esports experience than his new colleagues.
It is worth mentioning here that the team’s coaching was taken over by Tanishq “Tanizhq” Sabharwal, who was associated with Overwatch for years. Interestingly, the international squad has even already achieved their first success. We are talking about a triumph in the LVP Genesis Cup Fuego, which ended on October 15, through which loWel and the company went undefeated and did not lose even a single map.
An opportunity to repeat this result will be the LVP Genesis Cup Viento starting today – Heretics will compete in group B, which also includes Team Queso, Movistar Riders and alltheRAGE, and it is the latter team that will be the first rival of Tanizhq’s charges.
The VALORANT lineup subordinate to Team Heretics is as follows:
- Christian “loWel” Garcia Antoran
- Melih “pAura” Karaduran
- Žygimantas “nukkye” Chmieliauskas
- Dustyn “niesoW” Durnas
- Auni “AvovA” Chahade
- Tanishq “Tanizhq” Sabharwal – coach
