UK organisation Excel Esports has made some changes to its Valorant roster, with the signing of Norwegian/Chile player Rubino and UK player Moe40.

Rubino joins from Team Heretics and Moe arrives after a stint at Fnatic. There, he played alongside former Excel vlogger Boaster, with whom he also played on SUMN FC before joining Fnatic.

Excel, Davidp and B1GGY have decided to mutually terminate agreements, to allow them to pursue other projects in the Valorant scene.

Excel co-founder and chief gaming officer, Kieran Holmes-Darby, says this is ‘a result of the team not improving at a quick enough rate to compete at the highest level, which is where Excel wants to be’.

“Rubino brings a wealth of experience to the roster, having previously competed at the highest level in Counter-Strike and is a great personality to have in the team,” Excel said in a statement sent to press.

“Moe is an incredibly talented player who has already accomplished a lot in Valorant and we believe he still has room to grow with the experience around him in this roster.”

In addition, Excel will be moving Happy to the in-game leader role, ‘given his level of understanding of how to play the game and his ability to share his vast tournament winning experience with the team’. Excel says it believes Happy will thrive in this role. 

“Moe is an incredibly talented player who has already accomplished a lot in Valorant and we believe he still has room to grow with the experience around him in this roster.”

With this squad, Excel says it expects to be challenging the best teams in Europe and hope that in the not too distant future that they will win its first major Valorant trophy.

Excel first announced its Valorant roster back in late March.

The news comes after Team Heretics signed Valorant player Monsteerr from LDN UTD.

Fnatic’s Valorant side recently reached the final of the Stage 2 Masters LAN in Iceland. Their UK captain, Boaster, formerly worked with Excel as a vlogger and League of Legends sub. The former CSGO player has made an astounding switch to Valorant, with his follower numbers jumping massively thanks to his in-game skills and lively personality.
