Victor “Victor” Wong is set to compete alongside some familiar faces as he joins NRG for the 2023 Valorant Champions Tour.

NRG has been slowly revealing its roster members for the upcoming VCT season. As of now, many of those members have one thing in common. They were all part of the epic OpTic Gaming roster that placed top three in every single 2022 international tournament. NRG continues that theme with the addition of Victor “Victor” Wong.

NRG was one of many teams to secure a partnered spot for the VCT. This saw their roster at the time of the partnership announcement seek options elsewhere. That opened the door for them to sign the most talented roster they could find in a wild free agency period.

The only member from the previous roster that remains is Sam “s0m” Oh. Neither he nor NRG have made any indication of his roster status, so this week-long reveal that the organization is putting on will more than likely touch on that for the first time.

Regardless, with the signing to NRG, Victor once again finds himself as the Duelist on a team with Chet “Chet” Singh as the coach, Pujan “FNS” Mehta as the in-game leader and Austin “crashies” Roberts as the Initiator.

They will be missing Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker, who has joined Cloud9, and potentially Jimmy “Marved” Nguyen, who has indicated multiple times that he will be taking a break from competitive Valorant. Whether he was enticed to return is unknown.

NRG will be following up on the announcement of Victor by revealing the rest of its roster soon. They will need another Duelist/Flex and a Controller. The aforementioned s0m is familiar with both roles. No matter who they bring on to complete the roster, though, they automatically become one of the favorites in the Americas league with the firepower they’ve obtained thus far.
