Alliance Enter Valorant and Fans Will Decide Their Next Game
Alliance, the winners of the Dota 2 International 2013 are now aiming at new titles for next year. The organization is already entering Valorant and fans will decide their next division.
The Swedish organization, Alliance, announced that James Banks is joining them as their Valorant General Manager. The news came yesterday through the team’s official SM and website.
Delving deeper into the announcement reveals more and it's not just about Valorant. Apparently, the team will be staying on home turf (Europe) and Banks will be playing a crucial role.
The newly appointed Valorant GM commented:
This is a new challenge and a new chapter for me. I have been enjoying every aspect of VALORANT since beta. When I was first talking to the guys at Alliance they were very serious in how they wanted to approach the VALORANT scene and what they could offer a team.
Together with my experience and their fantastic support team we will be on the hunt for the right team or players to create something special. The facilities that Alliance have are impressive and I can’t wait to get the right players who are hungry, motivated and want to be the future champions of VALORANT under the Alliance banner. The hunt begins!
