Team Heretics keeps growing, adds nukkye to Valorant roster

After Team Heretics has entered the Valorant scene with Christian “loWel” Garcia Anotoran as its first signing, the team has not ceased to expand. The Spanish-owned organization added Melih “pAura” Karaduran a day later. Now, a third experienced player, has joined the growing Valorant roster. Žygimantas “nukkye” Chmieliauskas.

Valorant Claims Another Former CSGO Pro

With the massive influx of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pros into the Valorant scene, nukkye is yet another to make the cut. In CSGO, the 22-year-old Lithuanian took his career to the next level with his time at The Imperial. His biggest success with the team came with a win over OpTic Gaming at DreamHack Open Summer 2018. The Lithuanian then ended up at NoChance for a very brief period, before landing a spot in the Ukrainian-owned HellRaisers. Nukkye had an off and on relationship with the team, being inactive on two occasions. To add to that, HellRaisers had extremely mediocre performances whilst nukkye was on board. Perhaps his biggest achievement with HellRaisers is the runner-up spot at DreamHack Delhi Invitational in 2019.

The Ukrainian organization went through a complete team overhaul at the end of April of 2020. Before that, they have parted ways with nukkye, and he has been a free agent since then. HellRaisers was his last time in Counter-Strike as his next stop would be Team Heretics, but in Valorant.

Heretics Need Two To Finalize Roster

With two hungry players and loWel in charge, the Spanish organization still needs two more agents to finalize the roster. Surely, the team will be joining the battle at First Strike in the second half of October. To do that, the signings need to come in as fast as possible. With Team Heretics, the European scope of Valorant teams continues to grow.

Team Heretics currently have in their ranks:

  • Christian “loWel” Garcia Anotoran
  • Melih “pAura” Karaduran
  • Žygimantas “nukkye” Chmieliauskas
