CSGO star ScreaM joins FACEIT’s Valorant PRO DIVISION
Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom has officially joined Valorant PRO DIVISION on FACEIT. The announcement has been made via Twitter, as the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive star is set to compete on the FACEIT platform.
The hub found on FACEIT is unaffiliated with Riot Games, the publisher and producer of Valorant, nor Valorant Esports. The FACEIT hub has been verified on June 9.
The division follows its own rules and anyone is invited to compete. Currently, there are three different hubs, Open, Challenger and simply Valorant PRO DIVISION, which seems to be the top level. Anyone may join the Open division, but Challenger and the PRO DIVISION are invite only. Open Division already accumulated over 8,500 members, while Challenger and PRO DIVISION have around 350 and 250 members respectively.
ScreaM has become extremely popular in the CSGO community. Nicknamed the “one-tap machine”, the Belgian player and streamer is known for his outstanding ability to shoot headshots with a single bullet. ScreaM has a very long resume on the Counter-Strike scene, having competed in both Counter-Strike: Source, as well as CSGO. He played for a variety of different top teams such as G2 or Titan and is still currently tied to GamerLegion, despite being inactive.
ScreaM has been avidly streaming Valorant since beta and release. Given the similarities between Valorant and CSGO, the 25-year-old did not have any issues with playing Riot Games’ newest title. This has led to ScreaM joining up with Prodigy alongside Óscar “mixwell” Cañellas. The team triumphed at a variety of showmatches and minor tournaments in Valorant such as G2 Esports European Brawl I and II.
While not having admitted to making the switch to Valorant, ScreaM is inactive at his current CSGO team. It is more than likely that ScreaM will be moving onto Valorant full-time in the coming weeks, especially after making the decision to compete at Valorant PRO DIVISION.
