The Dream Run

July 18, 2023

A home run. A strike. A hole in one.

There are many terms in different sports to describe a perfect run. It is that rare occasion, when everything goes your way, you overcome all obstacles, and you take home the trophy.

We have completed our dream run.

As March 21st 2021, we are the first ever Valorant Masters Champions EU!

Mere weeks after founding this team from scratch, we have gone against all odds (and all predictions), and taken home the trophy. So let’s use this moment in time to take a look back on our journey so far.

It all started with koldamenta, Nbs, and a dream. Back in late 2021, we decided to put together a Valorant team (at the time under the name Raise Your Edge Gaming). Since we knew that former RYE player Jose Luis "koldamenta" Aranguren Herrero had made the switch to Valorant, we knew just who to talk to to make it happen.

We had valued koldamenta before for his work ethic, skill, and professionalism, so when he offered to join forces with former pro gamer and now Valorant coach “Nbs” to create the best roster in EU, we didn’t think twice.

After many Scrims and many more negotiations, the roster that would shake the scene was created:

Jose Luis Aranguren Herrero - Koldamenta
Santeri Heikki Juhani Sassi - Bonecold
Vlad Shvets - Kiles
Mehmet Yağız İpek - cNed
Patryk Kopczyński - starxo
Laurynas Kisielius - NBS
