OG had a rocky 2021 to say the least. Managing to qualify for the VCT Stage 1: Challengers 2 main event, they ended up bowing out in the first round. The team then landed another top-eight finish at Challengers 3, but that would be the last success OG would see. They went on to fail to make it out of the qualifiers of each subsequent Challengers event they participated in.
OG then went dormant in July 2021 and released four of their players in November of the same year. Now, it seems they're looking for a fresh start.
OG reveals new Valorant roster
Benjamin "uNKOE" Chevasson will be joined by his former teammate Theo “OniBy” Tarlier. Both were a part of OG’s original Valorant roster when the organisation entered the scene in February 2021, however, the latter left the team after three months.
The team will retain Julien “daemoN” Ducros as manager of the squad and add Tyler “Bambino” Jay as an analyst.
OG will also see the addition of Mathieu “LaAw” Plantin and Elian “MateliaN” R, who both saw some minor success on Bonsoir, managing to achieve a top eight finish at the VOTF: Fall Qualifier.
Rounding out the roster is Joey “fxy0” Schlosser, who joins the team after eight months of inactivity from pro play following his short journey with Tarren Mill that ended in April 2021.
OG will be participating in the first VCT 2022 qualifier that is set to begin on 10th January.
OG’s Valorant roster is now:
- Benjamin "uNKOE" Chevasson
- Theo “OniBy” Tarlier
- Joey “fxy0” Schlosser
- Mathieu “LaAw” Plantin
- Elian “MateliaN” R
- Julien “daemoN” Ducros (Manager)
