Ninjas in Pyjamas has announced its complete Valorant roster with the addition of three new players.
In a post on its official site, the organization introduced its lineup, revealing that Charles “CREA” Beauvois, Damien “HyP” Souville, and Enzo “Fearoth” Mestari had been recruited to the team. They join previously signed talents Emir “RHYME” Muminovic and Niels “luckeRRR” Jasiek.
RHYME and luckeRRR were signed in June, right after NiP decided to release its initial Valorant squad which consisted of former Paladins world champions. The organization notes that, with RHYME and luckeRRR, it has found “an exceptional mix of talent and drive.”
The new trio, on the other hand, complement their teammates with successful backgrounds of their own.
Similar to other newly formed Valorant squads, NiP’s new members come from a CS:GO professional background with CREA and Fearoth having different stints with multiple esports organizations.
Finally, HyP is a prolific Overwatch player, who competed for Paris Eternal before retiring from the Overwatch League in April. He has played professionally since 2016, and was on the French Overwatch World Cup team in 2019.
“It’s become clear that CS:GO experience is a strong predictor of VALORANT performance, and adding the spice of the highest level of Overwatch competition through HyP makes for a really strong foundation,” said NiP COO Jonas Gunderser.
“We’re confident that we have found a squad that can take us to the very top and build a legacy as NiP.VALORANT,” the organization added.
The new Ninjas in Pyjamas squad will debut against forZe at the WePlay! Invitational. Viewers can follow the tournament on Twitch for updates.
