Team Secret officially enters the Valorant esports scene by picking up the players of the BREN Esports roster from the Philippines.
As previously speculated and reported yesterday, the former members of BREN Esports’ Valorant roster have now been officially confirmed to play under Team Secret, as the org makes its way to the game’s esports scene. The official announcement was made on Twitter, and it included all five Filipino players as well as the roster’s original coach from BREN Esports.
With that announcement, the lineup for Team Secret’s Valorant roster is now revealed:
- Jayvee “DubsteP” Paguirigan
- Jessie Cristy “JessieVash” Cuyco
- Jim “BORKUM” Timbreza
- Kevin “Dispenser” Te
- Riley “witz” Go
This new Team Secret announcement bodes extremely well for Valorant SEA and its Filipino fans, as the region’s number one seed’s chances of continuing with their current standings from before the shakeup when they were under the BREN Esports banner.
The wonders of an international org
Team Secret has been one of the major organizations that have recently been expanding to Southeast Asia, in particular the Philippines; this latest venture for Valorant is just another step. The org holds a League of Legends Wild Rift esports team from the country, as well as a PUBG Mobile team in neighboring country Malaysia. It’s only logical that the organization leaps on the opportunity to pick up the region’s strongest name in Valorant, and it’s a win-win situation for the ex-BREN players as well.
In any case, it will be interesting to see how this new Valorant team picks up from the unfortunate events that lead to the implosion of BREN Esports’ Valorant ventures. The top seed team from SEA did not manage to secure travel visas for Masters Berlin, which is arguably one of their main chances to secure a spot at the prestigious Champions event in the same city later this year.
