Roberto Francisco "Mazino" Rivas Bugueo, Joaqun Ignacio "delz1k" Espinoza Soto, and Angelo "keznit" Mori have all been fired from KRÜ Esports.
After being admitted to the Americas VALORANT league, the most successful Latin American squad will search for a new core of players. Since the team's inception in early 2021, Mazino, Delz1k, and Keznit have been a vital part of KRÜ Esports' triumphs. Since VALORANT's inception, KRÜ Esports is the only team to have participated in each and every international LAN event, making them the overwhelming favourites to be chosen for the Americas league from LATAM.
KRÜ Esports consistently qualified for international competitions despite being first in their local challengers league on many occasions. The squad never finished higher than ninth at LAN competitions this year, finishing in the bottom four at Masters: Reykjavk and Masters: Copenhagen, and taking 11th place at Champions to round out the year.
KRÜ Esports has decided to bolster its lineup by keeping just two of its original members as they compete against some of the best from Brazil and North America. Only Juan Pablo "NagZ" Lopez and Nicolas "Klaus" Ferrari from the original five players are still in the game. Due to the updated import regulations for the Americas league, KRÜ Esports will now be able to sign any players from within their zone.
Players from all areas are still being released and added to rosters as the VALORANT offseason is still in its early stages. It is still unclear whether KRÜ Esports will continue to sign LATAM players or choose to sign NA players.
