NYFU reveal new Valorant roster for VCT
IGL Oderus will lead NYFU’s first complete lineup under the new name and will quickly be put to work in the first round of the VCT 2022 S2C1 Open Qualifier #1 on April 28.
NYFU will put this roster up against the NA scene with hopes of getting through to the main event, where teams will get the chance to add some circuit points to their name.
A week before the official announcement, the lineup played in the NSG: Summer Championship Open 2 and the April edition of the Knights Gauntlet. Though they didn’t get the results they wanted, the team are working on getting used to each other’s play.
Before switching over to the NYFU brand, Andbox previously bowed out of both Open Qualifiers for VCT Stage 1 Challengers, ending their road to Masters and beyond.
Andbox is no more.
New Year. New Era. New York.
