So yeah, this roster is expected to dominate regional and international tournaments. As we have mentioned before, it contains a talented trio from the previous OpTic Gaming roster, the one that finished second during VCT Champions 2022. This team also has Chet Singh, who coached OpTic Gaming in 2022, and this bodes very well. Like, very well. With this acquisition, it is safe to say that NRG has one of the most consistent and proven rosters in Valorant history.

Moreover, if you combine this with the fact that these experienced players also have three young talents with them, this just can't go bad. And to all the people complaining that this roster won't be the same without yay and Marved, just wait a couple of months to see how wrong you were.
