North American esports organization, Cloud9, has announced the signing of its first VALORANT player, Tyson “TenZ” Ngo. They join a growing list of organizations that are already building teams for the popular game, like T1 and 100 Thieves.
VALORANT began its closed beta a week ago, and although its esports plans haven’t been detailed yet, esports organizations are preparing for the inevitable. Besides signing players, some organizations are even hosting VALORANT invitationals. In the case of T1, their event will showcase the prowess of its team, while the 100 Thieves event will pit popular content creators against one another and could serve as an excellent means of scouting players.
Cloud9 initially signed TenZ to its CS:GO roster in July 2019. After a brief stint on the bench, TenZ transitioned into their streamer in December the same year. At this rate, we could have several complete VALORANT rosters ready before Riot Games officially unveils the game's competitive scene.
Cloud9 promises more VALORANT announcements and content soon.
