Since the closed beta of the game, we’ve seen a lot of professional players from several games moving to VALORANT. Mostly, former CS:GO players have changed their main game and started to compete in the new arena. As VALORANT develops, these kinds of jumps will increase for sure. However, I wasn’t expecting the latest change to be honest. The North American player Kenneth “koosta” Suen joined Gen.G’s VALORANT roster.
The unveiling was made on the team’s social media accounts with a video clip which Gen.G welcomes (back) koosta saying, “You know and love him from our CS:GO team, but now it’s time to #ChangeTheGame.” With this move, Gen.G’s roster is completed and ready to fight in 2021:
- Anthony “gMd” Guimond
- Danny “huynh” Huynh
- Michael “MkaeL” De Luca
- Shawn “Shawn” O’Riley
- Kenneth “koosta” Suen
- Andrew “Blank” Leverette (Coach)
Koosta is familiar to many CS:GO fans since he began his career in 2014. The 24-year-old player has found chances in several big organizations like Cloud9, Team Liquid and CLG throughout his journey.
As soon as the game’s closed beta was released, Gen.G had established a VALORANT team. Although there are many strong teams in North America, Gen.G managed to win a few trophies such as Pulse Invitational in which it defeated Cloud9 in the final. Despite sitting in fifth place in the world rankings, the team failed in the First Strike’s main event and couldn’t make it into the top eight in the tournament.
Like any other team in VALORANT scene, Gen.G is preparing to contend in VALORANT Champions Tour 2021.
