Enzo joins Apeks for the Challengers Northern: Polaris
Formerly known by the pseudonym Fearoth, Enzo is one of the French players who had a meteoric rise last year. After carrying the colours of Fnatic for a while, he embarked on a new adventure by building the team of the Apeks structure. With this, he will enter the Valorant Nordic circuit, namely the Challengers Northern Europe: Polaris.
Enzo Mestari, alias Enzo in play, started his career on Valorant with the HypHypHyp team, alongside our captain. And what a career in such a short time! Quickly noticed for his individual performances, he is signed by Ninjas in Pyjamas, before joining the Alliance roster.
When the opportunity arose, Fnatic called on his talent for the first Masters of the VCT 2022. This transfer was only a temporary loan, but, convinced by his knowledge, the behemoth ended up recruiting him for the second Challengers of the year. This great adventure even led him to the Valorant Champions.
After several months of collaboration, the structure separated from Enzo, he then started looking for something new. Although he did not find a new organisation to join the VCT 2023, Enzo nevertheless joined a project that was very interesting for his career, namely the Apeks Team.
This newly formed team joins the Northern Europe League Polaris for the competitive season. It includes strong and experienced players, such as Magnum and Mistic, who both played for Fnatic. The team is completed by ShadoW and Keiko, former players of Piercer Esports and Bonk respectively.
In the official statement of the organisation, Einar Grannes, Project Lead at Apeks, "there was extensive research and a lot of effort put into establishing a solid long-term strategy for this project". In addition, Espen Berg Knutsen, CEO, took the opportunity of the announcement to explain the ambitions of Team Apeks:
Riot Games has a proven track record in esports and are known for their high standards and quality work. Apeks is built on the fundamental goal of raising the standards in esports. We bring experience and professionalism from the traditional sports industry and love working with partners such as Riot Games who reflect our ambition of improving the industry.Espen Berg Knutsen
Enzo is not only joining this structure, he was also in charge of setting up his new team. The Frenchman has indicated a clear objective for the 2023 season: qualification for the Challengers Ascension tournament.
I am delighted to join Apeks and to have the opportunity to build a successful team from the ground up with the aim of qualifying for VCT through ascension. Our team is a perfect mix of experience and talent and with all the knowledge that I have gained in recent years, I will do my best to develop the team and create our own formula for success.Enzo Mestari
This brand new mix of players will start the competition very soon, as the Challengers Northern Polaris will begin on 16th January.
