Agent PROfiles: An Interview With NUTURN’s Hyun-Seok “Hyeoni” Yoon.

 


By Arran “Halo” Spake

When a new esport is formed, two types of player emerge to form its nucleus. The players that have been playing at a professional level in other games and switch to try their hand at another and the top ranked players from other games who are looking for their big break. Of those players, only a few will have a shot at potential stardom with their regions and NUTURN’s newest signing Hyun-Seok “Hyeoni” Yoon has just that opportunity.

EMEA VALORANT Coaches & Team Managers Poll #1


 

By Arran “Halo” Spake

The first EMEA coaches & team managers poll has arrived. As with the first two European coaches and team managers poll. Halo’s EMEA poll follows the same idea as American College sports when ranking the best teams in the region. I have asked coaches and team managers from both tier one and two for their top ten teams from Europe, based on their performances in the VCT Challengers stage. Coaches and Team Managers are not allowed to include their own teams and for the first time, teams from the CIS and Turkish sub-regions are eligible to be selected for the top ten teams. All picks are anonymous.

Attempting To Complete Their Acend-sion. EMEA's Acend Head To Playoffs

 


By Arran “Halo” Spake

The group stages of Masters Berlin are complete with just six of the original fifteen teams remaining at the time of this post, the pretenders have started to be left to the wayside, while the contenders start to rise to the top and state their claim as the best team in the professional Valorant scene. One of those teams remaining is Acend, the third seed from EMEA, who has battled through a tough group A that included the Korean roster of Vision Strikers and fellow EMEA hope SuperMassive Blaze who beat Acend in the regional qualifiers to take the number two seed.  Now with the playoffs in full swing, Acend is here to show that they are not only better than the North American teams they have been paired with but to show they are the best team in the world.
