According to multiple sources familiar with the situation, Rui “TugaTV” Ribeiro is in advanced talks to join the Spanish organization Arctic. The Portuguese player recently parted ways with Rebels after joining them to be the sixth player at the beginning of March.
Regarding Arctic, the team couldn’t perform better than 9th place in the first stage of VALORANT Rising Stage 1, the official Spanish league. This performance put them to play the relegation with Team Heretics, Movistar Riders, and Bisons to fight for two places in stage 2. Alongside Heretics, Arctic achieved a place in the next stage of the Spanish league after defeating Movistar Riders in Icebox.
Recently, Arctic farewelled Arkadiusz “xiTsha” Nowak, the polish talent that has been on the team since the organization entered into the VALORANT scene.
If TugaTV and Arctic conclude the negotiations, Arctic will go with:
- Dominykas “MiniBoo” Lukaševičius
- Norbert “Dext” Paulovčák
- Jose “humanz” Luis Cebrian
- Marius “l0udly” Žilinskas
- Rui “TugaTV” Ribeiro
- Manuel “Thinkii” Martinez (coach)
