NRG Esports signs Wedid to Valorant roster

NRG Esports has signed Matthew “Wedid” Suchan to its Valorant roster just in time for Stage 3 of the Valorant Champions Tour. 

NRG has struggled to break into the highest echelon of professional Valorant. The team did not make it into the North American First Strike tournament and did not qualify for Valorant Champions Tour Masters 1. They did manage to make it into the VCT Stage 2 Challengers Finals. But they failed to make it into Masters 2 Reykjavik. 

Earlier this month, Damian “Daps” Steele retired from professional Valorant. He explained that the team’s lackluster performance was not the reason for him leaving and that he no longer enjoyed competing. The remaining members of the roster remained on the team, and the organization finally revealed Wedid as the team’s final member. 

A new beginning for NRG

Wedid formerly played for XSET and was an important part of its Valorant roster. The team did not make it into First Strike, but they performed relatively well in VCT Stage 1. XSET qualified for Masters 1, although they were sent home without winning a match. 

VCT Stage 2 was a similar story, although XSET did not make it past the Challengers Finals. Shortly after this disappointing finish, Wedid was moved to the bench. The talented player has found a new home with NRG, however. 

VCT Stage 3 is just around the corner, and NRG has another opportunity to make a name for itself in North America. Wedid might be the extra push needed for the team to succeed. 

The new NRG roster is as follows:

  • Daniel “eeiu” Vucenovic
  • Sam “s0m” Oh
  • Bradley “ANDROID” Fodor
  • Ian “tex” Botsch
  • Matthew “Wedid” Suchan
