Team Secret Signs Entire Bren Esports Valorant Roster
The former Bren Esports Valorant roster has been acquired by Team Secret, the European organization announced Thursday.
All five of the players in Jessie Cristy "JessieVash" Angeles Cuyco, Jayvee Balisi "DubsteP" Paguirigan, Jim Albert "BORKUM" Abadiano Timbreza, Kevin Depio "Dispenser" Te and Zhon Riley "witz" Go Reyes—as well as their coach in Gilbert Agatep "Gibo" Sales Jr.—have made the move.
In what turned out to be their final showing on Bren Esports in the VCT SEA Stage 3 Challengers Playoffs, the roster representing the Philippines swept their group stage 3-0, CERBERUS Esports 2-0, Team Big BAAM 2-0, Alter Ego 2-0 and Paper Rex 3-0 en route to securing their spot as the region's No. 1 seed for Masters Berlin.
Unfortunately, however, the team was just recently ruled out from competing in VCT Stage 3: Masters Berlin due to visa issues, Riot Games announced on Sept. 3.
On Sept. 7, Bren Esports then announced that the roster had "decided to explore and review other possible opportunities."
Team Secret's debut Valorant roster officially includes:
- Jessie Cristy "JessieVash" Angeles Cuyco
- Jayvee Balisi "DubsteP" Paguirigan
- Jim Albert "BORKUM" Abadiano Timbreza
- Kevin Depio "Dispenser" Te
- Zhon Riley "witz" Go Reyes
- Gilbert Agatep "Gibo" Sales Jr. (Coach)
Thanks to Riots' officially rules stating that “the circuit points will remain with the roster of players if three of the five sign to the same org,” Team Secret will inherit Bren Esports' 225 VCT SEA Circuit Points, keeping a ticket to the end-of-year Valorant Champions tournament with their names on it within reach.
Although Team Secret is widely known for its Dota 2 team in Europe, the org continues to operate a PUBG Mobile team in Malaysia, a League of Legends roster in Vietnam and a Wild Rift team that's also based in the Philippines.
