Asian Esports Giant Talon Is Entering VALORANT, Announces Squad

Popular esports organization Talon has announced its entrance into competitive VALORANT, signing three players from the Philippines to start its squad: Mark Ed “markL” Lester, GabbyDiz, and gnaru. Talon is wasting no time, revealing their intention to compete in the upcoming VALORANT Champions Tour Stage 2 Challengers series, which is set to begin on May 5th.

“We have been big fans of the game since its release in 2020 and seen the success of VCT across the globe last year,” said Sean Zhang, CEO of PSG Talon. “We know that the Philippines has world-class talent and look forward in strengthening the country’s representation on the international stage.”

All three players on the new roster have been competing in VALORANT since 2021, with gnaru and markL participating in First Strike two years ago. Both GabbyDiz and ganru have competed together on Bestial while markL was last seen on OK, a Vietnamese team in the VCT Vietnam circuit. None of the three have made it to a major tournament in VALORANT, or into the APAC qualifying tournament for VALORANT Masters or Champions.

Talon still needs to field two more players in order to compete in the VCT.
