North American esports organization, Cloud9, has announced ex-CS:GO pro, Tyson “TenZ” Ngo, as its first official Valorant pro.
TenZ has been a professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player since 2016 and was signed by C9 in early July last year. He eventually transitioned into a content creator and streamer for C9 after the organization decided to restructure the team when Gen.G Esports acquired most of their players.
TenZ has been streaming his Valorant gameplay since the game entered its closed beta phase.
C9 even put together an incredible highlights montage of the 19-year old Canadian player as part of the announcement of his move to Valorant.

“I’ve decided to make this change because, after getting access to the closed beta, I’ve been having a lot of fun playing Valorant lately. And I just thought it would be best if I change games, and I’m just really excited for the future of this game,” TenZ stated.
