Team Heretics has unveiled its highly-anticipated VALORANT roster for the 2024 VALORANT Champions Tour season.

This exciting new line up comprises a mix of emerging talent and experienced players, all determined to make their mark in the European VALORANT scene.

Leading the charge is Ričardas “Boo” Lukaševičius, who takes on the role of in-game leader.

Joining him is his younger brother, Dominykas “MiniBoo” Lukaševičius, demonstrating a family connection that promises to bring a unique dynamic to the team.

The roster further boasts the skills of Benjy “benjyfishy” Fish, a former Fortnite star making the transition to VALORANT.

Complementing this core are two promising Turkish prospects, Enes “RieNs” Ecirli and Mert “Wo0t” Alkan.

This line up represents a significant departure from the 2023 roster, which included veterans such as Óscar “mixwell” Cañellas, who recently announced his retirement from competitive play.

The transition is marked by a reveal video that features Mixwell passing the torch to this new generation of players, affectionately referred to as “Los Niños,” signifying the dawn of a new era for Team Heretics in VALORANT.

While the team is relatively young, with Boo being the eldest player at 25, they bring a wealth of individual talent and accomplishments.

Benjyfishy was honoured as the Rookie of the Season during the East: Surge Split One, while MiniBoo secured the Season MVP title in the Spain: Rising Split Two, both in 2023.

RieNs played a crucial role on the S2G Esports roster, reaching the finals in Turkish Splits and winning one of them.

Wo0t, while not enjoying the same team success with Fire Flux Esports, claimed the Regular Season MVP for the first Turkish Split in 2023.

This is an initial roster composition, and the players have experience in various roles, from MiniBoo’s expertise with Jett and Raze to RieNs’ proficiency with Breach and Sova.

Adjusting to a new line up will take time, but the inherent chemistry between the two Lithuanian brothers should provide a solid foundation.

In the diverse EMEA VALORANT scene, mixed rosters have demonstrated their potential for success, as evidenced by teams like Fnatic who dominated the 2023 VCT season.

Although success hinges on the right staff and circumstances, this Heretics roster shows promise not only as a dark horse for the 2024 season but for years to come.

Their blend of youthful energy and individual achievements could be the recipe for a bright future in the competitive VALORANT landscape.
