The esports organisations of the European scene are slow to sign players. So far, only G2 Esports and Ninjas in Pyjamas were officially represented in the various competitions. This caution was beginning to strain the patience of players, as some amateur teams decided to end their Valorant careers.
Ec1s, captain of the Fish123 team, had already spoken about this in May and regretted that no organisation wanted to recruit their team. They then lost Ardiis, who moved to G2 Esports.
