Following the addition of dedicated servers in the Middle East, fully localizing VALORANT in Arabic for the region’s players, and revealing the inaugural VALORANT Strike Arabia tournament, it was bound for noticeable organizations to start scouting for talent. YaLLa Esports are one of the first to pick up a roster, and will participate in the region’s tournament to prove their worth.
The roster consists of Yaser “HoveRR” Akkad, Muhanad “Madcon” Al Sherif, Hussain “7pros” Ali, Saif “Fr1” Al Ameri, and Mohamed “bucher1” Bucheeri. The core of the lineup, Hover, Bucheri, Fr1, and 7pros, played together since the tactical shooter’s closed beta. Not only that, they managed to win the VALORANT CME tournament and placed 2nd in the Xentrics VALORANT tournament, both of which are community tournaments organized in MENA.
All of the players and the staff come from a strong Counter-Strike: Global Offensive background, especially Bucheri and Hover. The expertise present at YaLLa Esports managing one of the best CS:GO teams in the region will definitely benefit their transition into VALORANT.
“Now that VALORANT Strike Arabia is here, we want to check the pulse and try to understand what the VALORANT community is like! And that’s crucial for us to stay in a game, if we feel the community is active and supportive on socials we will never look back and only move forward.”answered Devil, COO of YaLLa Esports
“We hope that we will be part of the Finals of VALORANT Strike Arabia. The roster is solid and what impresses us the most about these guys is the team atmosphere and that’s crucial for us before talking skills and we want to work with good human beings that we can enjoy our time supporting! Add to that the fact that these boys are crazy skilled!,” continued Klaus, CEO of YaLLa Esports.
YaLLa Esports already won both their games in the Strike Arabia – GCC Qualifier’s Winners bracket, including a convincing 13-1 against EearthQuake in the second round. They are currently waiting to come up against SAMURAI today in the third round.
