Luminosity Gaming is no longer going to be a member of the competitive VALORANT scene. On June 2nd, Luminosity Gaming announced it would be leaving the world of competitive VALORANT for the “foreseeable future.”
The team’s players will still play under the organization’s banner throughout the remainder of the North American VCT Challengers Stage Two series. However, after that, Luminosity will have to find a new home for its roster which is made up of six people: Kaleb “moose” Jayne, Will “dazzLe” Loafman, Tanner “TiGG” Spanu, Adam “mada” Pampuch, Brandon Michael “bdog” Sanders, and head coach Jared “mac” Schneider.
Luminosity’s decision to leave VALORANT comes just days after Riot reportedly provided an update on its partnership system for 2023. Prior to this, Luminosity had supported a competitive VALORANT roster since August 2020.
The Profit‘s Take:
I think Enthusiast Gaming is under the gun and feeling a lot of pressure from investors/shareholders, so it’s getting rid of one of its worst-performing assets. Many competition-based esports orgs are struggling right now, which is no surprise. Pair that with the niche audience that enjoys VALORANT, and this decision shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
