Valorant’s competitive scene is so young, and teams try to complete their puzzles after every event. However, some rough performances bring alterations along with them. Team Liquid has unveiled that Adam “ec1s” Eccles has been benched by the team.
In the closed beta period of Valorant, when big organizations weren’t involved in the scene yet, ec1s’ name has shined with fish123 as they became one of the best rosters in Europe. With the official launch of Valorant, Team Liquid decided to join the scene and acquired fish123 in July. Since then, Eccles has been a part of the team.
Team Liquid has been among the top 10 teams in Europe, but the roster couldn’t make it to the top spot. With the development of the scene alongside other teams, Liquid regressed and got eliminated from tournaments multiple times. Lastly, the roster failed the Challengers 2 qualifier against Alliance.
In FPS titles, getting benched usually means that the player and the team parted their ways, as ec1s mentioned. “End of a chapter,” he said. “Will miss playing with the boys! We came from nothing and ended up representing the best org in the world, and I can be proud of that! I wish them nothing but the best and will still support them no matter what!”
As everyone expected, Jamppi joined Liquid after this news. The 19-year-old former CS:GO player announced his transition into Valorant last month.
Team Liquid’s Valorant roster currently:
- James “Kryptix” Affleck
- Travis “L1NK” Mendoza
- Dom “soulcas” Sulcas
- Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom
- Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen
- Adam “ec1s” Eccles (inactive)
- Connor “Sliggy” Blomfield (coach)
