Team Liquid signed ex CS:GO pro Elias ‘Jamppi’ Olkkonen to their Valorant competitive roster on Feb. 25. The addition of Jamppi raised many eyebrows after Team Liquid benched their in-game leader Adam ‘ec1s’ Eccles for the new member.
After his lawsuit against the CS:GO developers over a VAC ban that kept him from competitive play, Jamppi decided to take his talents to Valorant.
With Jamppi on their roster Team Liquid is expecting they'll be able to conjure up some success following their not-so-ideal start to the EU Valorant Champions Tour. They've been unable to secure a Top 4 spot in Challengers 1 and couldn't make it out of the open round in Challengers 2. Challengers 3 is set to begin on March 2, hopefully with this new roster Team Liquid will be able to qualify for a spot in VCT Masters 1.
The active Team Liquid Valorant Roster is now Adil ‘ScreaM’ Benrlitom, Dom ‘soulcas’ Sulcas, Travis ‘L1NK’ Mendoza, James ‘Kryptix’ Affleck, and Elias ‘Jamppi’ Olkkonen.
