NAVI acquired FPX Valorant roster2022-11-08 13:11:00
NAVI have officially bought most of the FunPlus Phoenix roster that earlier parted ways with the organization. As the official Valorant partner, the Ukrainian organization will participate in VCT 2023 League with ANGE1's lineup.
Ukrainian organization made a few changes to the lineup. Ardis "ardiis" Svarenieks was replaced by Mehmet "cNed" Yağız İpek. The main coach stayed the same, its Erik "d00mbr0s" Sandgren, but there is a new assistant coach — Oliwer "LATEKS" Fahlander, who previously worked with Giants as the head coach.
NAVI had their own squad in the previous season but didn't achieve much. Following Riot Games' rejection to partner up with FPX, the organization opted to leave the game and sell its roster.
The roster was one of the strongest teams since the early days in Valorant and reached its peak this year. The squad has won VCT 2022 Stage 2 Masters Copenhagen and finished 4th in Valorant Champions.
