Knights Esports signed a contract with the players of the youth roster of Valorant

The leadership of the eSports club Knights Esports announced on the club's Twitter account that they had signed contracts with all players of the Valorant roster. Previously, some esportsmen have already played at tournaments in 2022 under the Knights Academy tag, and some were invited to take the place of the players who said goodbye to the club.

Under the Knight Esports Academy tag, riku, sae, leak, Add3r and pureVNS will perform. Leak and Add3r were able to achieve at least some success on stage.

Armel 'leak' Araneta, 18, began his career as a professional Valorant player on September 10, 2020 when he joined Elevate. Together with the latter, he managed to achieve the most solid achievement of his career, taking 2nd place at the EVOlution Open North America and earning $3,000 per team there. He later continued on his way to DREAMLAND and Resonate. Together with the latter, he took 3rd place at Super League Arena #2, where he earned $1,500 for the team. In total, the esportsman was able to earn $1,650 in prize money during his career.

Jack 'Add3r' Hayashi, another member of the roster who stands out from his teammates, in turn earned $2,611 in his 4 month career. His path began in Team Serenity and before moving to the ranks of the Knight Academy was limited only to being in this team. He managed to win several week-long competitive events and larger championships. He conquered such tournaments as InfernaLAN Monthly Tournament #4, Valorant Sunday Showdown Week 58, Valorant Sunday Showdown Week 60, Valorant Sunday Showdown Week 61, as well as BoomTV Proving Grounds #3 - Semi-Pro Division and NSG: Frag Valorant Major - Fullerton. For winning the last two, Add3r earned $3,000 and $4,125 per team, respectively.

The last tournament that Knights Academy players took part in was x1MOB's February Banger. There the team took 3rd place and earned $250. In this tournament, the players performed already in such a sample, which was presented by the management and there will be no changes in the near future.
