The European organisation agreed to close its Valorant roster with xms, an ex-CSGO player who had previously played with Team Envy, LDLC, and lastly for Heretics before agreeing to make the Transition to Riot’s first-person tactical shooter.
Although Alliance went on to qualify for the VCT Masters event, becoming Europe’s first team to do the feat, they parted with Vilius “krea6on” Malinauskas.
Formerly from CSGO, during his tenure at Team Envy, xms led his side to the DreamHack Open Atlanta 2017 title, where Envy defeated Heroic in the BO3 Grand Finale. Post this, the 23-year-old Frenchman helped the team to take second place in the ELEAGUE Boston Major European Minor in 2018.
Before the Transition to Valorant was made, xms played alongside Fabien ‘kioShiMa’ Fiey at Team Heretics. Upon joining the former, he served “Almost International” and “Team Finest” before being acquired by the Alliance for their Pro Valorant.
With the signing of XMS, Alliance are now:
- Enzo “Fearoth” Mestari
- Tautvydas “hype” Paldavicius
- Thomas “kAdavra” Johner
- Niels “luckeRRR” Jasiek
- Alexandre “xms” Forté (On Trial for 3 months)
- Mitch “MitchMan” McBride (Analyst)
