MAD Lions, an organization best known for their prolific League of Legends team, are expected to enter into the Valorant scene with the acquisition of the Tenstar roster, multiple sources have told Dexerto.

Tenstar has faced uncertainty in recent weeks, notably due to the founder and CEO Carl Roderick resigning at the start of March. This followed the resignation of two directors at the company in September 2021.

This has left many wondering what the next steps will be for the organization, after they were left in a precarious financial position and unable to obtain further funding.

Tenstar player Domagoj ‘Doma’ Fancev posted in a now-deleted Tweet on April 5: “leaving Tenstar info coming soon.”

Tenstar’s uncertain financial position provides an opportunity for MAD Lions to secure a Valorant roster.

The move allows MAD Lions, a well-known organization who have long been interested in acquiring the right Valorant roster, to enter the scene, but also gives Tenstar the financial security to continue operations.

Tenstar are still looking to field a Valorant roster, and this financial injection may be enough to secure the replacement team.
