The organisation forZe Esports has decided to withdraw from Valorant. One of the best teams in the CIS region is therefore leaving the scene following a ruthless transfer window.
The forZe Valorant team was among the first teams to form in Eastern Europe in May 2020. It was also one of the best in the CIS region. They won the Valorant First Strike, numerous Valorant Challengers and even finished second of the Masters CIS of Phase 1.
Unfortunately for forZe, these performances have attracted the covetousness of other organisations. In September 2021, three of its main players were bought out by One Breath Gaming. With these departures, the organisations lost its qualification for the Valorant Last Chance Qualifier, since the rules stipulate that VCT points belong to the players and not to the organisations.
With only 3 players and no chance to participate in any VCT stage this year, forZe has decided not to invest in Valorant until further notice. Maybe they will comeback for the VCT 2022 with a new roster.
