Gen.G's Valorant roster is set to receive an overhaul, as Danny “huynh” Huynh, the squad's Jett player has announced he will be allowed to look for another team, the player announced via Twitter.
Huynh joined Gen.G all the way back in May 2020 as part of the team’s original roster in Valorant. Since then the squad managed to get first place in the T1 x Nerd Street Gamers Invitational, Pittsburgh Knights Invitational, Pulse Invitational, and Knights Before Christmas. As well as landing a third-place finish at VCT North America Stage 1: Masters.
However, in more recent events, Gen.G failed to make it out of Open Qualifiers at VCT North America Stage 2: Challengers 1 and 2. This means that the team will not get the chance to perform at Valorant’s first international LAN in Reykjavík, Iceland.

It appears that Gen.G could be in the market for a new Controller player to fill Anthony “gMd” Guimond’s spot as the team’s main Omen, rather than a Jett player to replace huynh. As evident by Matthew “mCe” Elmore (the head coach of Gen.G’s Valorant team)’s comments in WyattRiver’s Twitch chat earlier today, “I fully intend to move [gMd] into a secondary duelist role because it gives us the ability to easily swap him into a breach role which he's also insane on. He's a natural entry.”
Gen.G is now:
- Anthony “gMd” Guimond
- Michael “MkaeL” De Luca
- Kenneth “koosta” Suen
- Shawn “Shawn” O’Riley
- Danny “huynh” Huynh (Sub)
- Andrew “Blank” Leverette (Manager)
- Matthew “mCe” Elmore (Coach)
