Months ago we saw nolpenki formed as a full Lithuanian five. Since then, the squad has won many events including Trovo Challenge – Europe, but the roster has now decided to go international with the additions of Mehmet Yağız “cNed” İpek, Aleksander “zeek” Zygmunt, Jesse “JESMUND” Terävä, and Aron “xajdish” Fredriksson, to play alongside captain Vakaris “vakk” Bebravičius.
This news means that Dovydas “cho” Misevičius, Marius “l0udly” Žilinskas, and Tomas “Destrian” Linikas leave alongside Ričardas “Boo” Lukaševičius who announced his departure only a few weeks ago. The old squad was well known in Europe, being one of the most deadly squads, even qualifying to WePlay! VALORANT Invitational through a grueling qualifier and holding a 12th position on the THESPIKE.GG’s European rankings.
zeek comes into nolpenki as their Sova, playing the role heavily during his time at the recently disbanded THOSE GUYS managing to average a 229 ACS and 1.26 KD. The Pole played many regional cups in his region and won most, including the Dell Cup by x-kom AGO and Polish Esport Cup, most recently finishing runner up in Polish Open #FRAMESWINGAMES.
Their Omen, xajdish, comes in after his long time at bonk, where the Swede picked up second place spots in Ignition Series events, LVL VALORANT Clash 2 and Mandatory.GG Cup. Even earlier in his VALORANT career, he played multiple series with DREAMCHASERS at Epulze Valorant Prodigies.
cNed is one of the most promising players in the European region, averaging an amazing 268 ACS and 1.41 KD so far. The Turk tops many people’s Jett player list, appearing in nolpenki after his time at BBL Esports where he helped his squad achieve top four at Mandatory.GG Cup and qualifying for Allied Esports Odyssey and was even rumoured to join Fnatic.
The new five looks very promising, already playing through TOURSTAT Summer Clash with this new roster where they haven’t dropped a singular map. While looking promising, it is yet to be seen whether the players can maintain this performance.
The changes see nolpenki’s roster become:
Vakaris “vakk” Bebravičius
Jesse “JESMUND” Terävä
Aron “xajdish” Fredriksson
Mehmet Yağız “cNed” İpek
Aleksander “zeek” Zygmunt
