One of the hottest commodities in VALORANT, 16 year-old star Zachary “zekken” Patrone has been added to the XSET, coming over from Noble. There has not been any confirmation as to who will be removed from the starting squad.
Having played under Noble for the entirety of Stage 2 VCT, he showed that his name belongs in the conversation with the likes of Tyson “TenZ” Ngo & Peter “Asuna” Mazuryk, when it comes to elite duelists. During his time in the semi-professional VALORANT scene, Zekken has played almost 3600 rounds. During that time he has a staggering ACS of 263, and a mind boggling rating of 1.34, along with a Kill/Death ratio of 1.35. Those numbers clearly show that he was destined to sign with a top tier VALORANT org eventually.
With this signing, XSET now has 7 members on their roster, with original member Matthew “Wedid” Suchan being looked at by NRG Esports to come in as their 5th member. There is still no word as to who Zekken will replace on the active roster.
With this roster move, XSET are now:
Rory “dephh” Jackson
Brendan “bcJ” Jensen
Bryce “PureR” Lovell
Jordan “AYRIN” He
Zander “thwifo” Kim
Zachary “Zekken” Patrone
Matthew “Wedid” Suchan (benched)
