The new roster comprises former NAViI and G2 esports players.
Giants Gaming has announced its Valorant roster for VCT 2023. One of the ten franchised EMEA orgs, Giants will feature an international roster with players from multiple countries. The team will debut its new roster at the VCT Kickoff event in Brazil.
Giants announced its complete roster in a new video today. The video features a hacker finding his way into the Riot database and then saving the Giants’ Valorant roster details on a … floppy disk.
The video is a fun parody take on the various roster leaks in the Valorant esports scene. The team’s roster includes players formerly of NAVI and G2 esports.
G2 esports did not make it into the Valorant franchise reportedly due to actions of the org’s CEO, Carlos.
NAVI also announced their Valorant roster recently featuring superstars such as cNed and the majority of the former FPX squad.
Giants Gaming Valorant roster
Giants’ Valorant roster is as follows:
- Adolfo “Fit1nho” Gallego
- Aaro “hoody” Peltokangas
- Žygimantas “nukkye” Chmieliauskas
- Emir “rhyme” Muminovic
- Kirill “Cloud” Nehozhin
Fit1nho will take on the role of the primary duelist while rhyme will be the team’s controller player. Muminovic is also the team’s IGL and will be responsible for a lot of the team’s strategic plays.
Helping him will be the team’s coach, Daniil “pipsoN” Meshcheryakov. PipsoN has a wealth of experience and has also handled the coaching role previously on G2 esports. Having worked with nukkye, the flex player on the team, pipsoN should have a much better synergy with some of the players on the squad.
Valorant esports 2023 will move to a franchise system for next year with thirty partnered organizations. The new format will see 3 new international leagues and a kickoff tournament. The kickoff tournament will take place in Brazil and is bound to be an explosive and passionate start to a new era in Valorant esports.
Giants is a Spanish esports organization with rosters in multiple titles. With rosters in CS: GO, League of Legends, Rainbow Six and Rocket League, the roster was accepted into the Valorant franchise system. While this roster may not have big names, it has potential to grow and surprise everyone due to their coordination and raw skill.
