The Ukrainian multigaming esports organization NAVI signs a roster for VALORANT Franchise League. The core of the new squad and the new coach Erik "d00mbr0s" Sandgren are from FunPlus Phoenix.
"Today, we are ready to announce the roster that will represent NAVI in the discipline. Performing under the club's banner is now the FPX team led by Kyrylo "ANGE1" Karasov, but with one change: Mehmet "cNed" Yağız İpek replacing Ardis "ardiis" Svarenieks, who will continue his career in a different region," noted the NAVI statement.
This was expected as according to a BLIX.GG report, this transfer cost NAVI around $500,000. And recently, FPX announced the disbanding of its Valorant roster.
20-year-old cNed came to NAVI from Acend, where he was inactive since September this year.
NAVI's Valorant roster is:
- Kyrylo "ANGE1" Karasov
- Andrey "Shao" Kiprsky
- Pontus "Zyppan" Eek
- Dmitry "SUYGETSU" Ilyushin
- Mehmet "cNed" İpek
