huynh officially released from Gen.G Esports
Gen.G Esports has a full five-man roster, but just announced the release of one of their bench players. Danny “huynh” Huynh joined Gen.G Esports all the way back in May of 2020. Now, over a year later, he will be looking for a new organization to call home in order to achieve his competitive Valorant goals.
Gen.G Esports took to Twitter to wish huynh a farewell. The player was with Gen.G from the get go. He even helped the squad to a championship in one of Valorant’s first large tournaments, the T1 Invitational. They followed that up with victories in the Pittsburgh Knights Tournament Series and the Pulse Invitational.
Since then, however, it has been a bit of a rollercoaster for Gen.G. The team did not qualify for First Strike North America and had a rocky start to the Valorant Champions Tour. 3rd place at Stage 1: Masters 1 should have been the turning point for the roster. Unfortunately, they did not make it past the qualifying rounds of either Stage 2: Challengers events.
Looking to find the winning formula, Gen.G esports benched huynh on April 22nd. Since then, they signed Nicholas “NaturE” Garrison (formerly of Immortals). Just shy of two months later, huynh has been granted his release from the organization with his eyes set to the future.
His competitive Valorant experience is hard to match. He was once in the conversation of the best Jett player in North America. The hope is that he can enter that conversation again. Best of luck to huynh as he searches for a team. There is no doubt that he will land somewhere that could use his skillset and that he will be competing with top tier teams sooner rather than later.
