Following the video announcement on the changes to EXCEL ESPORTS VALORANT roster, from co-founder and CGO Kieran Holmes-Darby, I thought you might be interested in a brief recap for any news you may be pulling together.
Announcement regarding our VALORANT roster. Join us in welcoming two new faces to the EXCEL brand:
Additionally, we’d like to announce that @Happy1 will be taking on the IGL role.

Key takeouts include:
- EXCEL, Davidp and B1GGY have decided to mutually terminate agreements, to allow them to pursue other projects in the VALORANT scene. This is as a result of the team not improving at a quick enough rate to compete at the highest level, which is where EXCEL wants to be.
- EXCEL will be welcoming two new faces to the VALORANT roster – Rubino and Moe40. EXCEL has signed Rubino from Team Heretics, who has been one of the most successful European VALORANT rosters to date, and Moe joins EXCEL after a previous successful stint at Fnatic.
- “Rubino brings a wealth of experience to the roster, having previously competed at the highest level in Counter-Strike and is a great personality to have in the team.”
- “Moe is an incredibly talented player who has already accomplished a lot in VALORANT and we believe he still has room to grow with the experience around him in this roster.”
- In addition, EXCEL will be moving Happy to the in-game leader role, given his level of understanding of how to play the game and his ability to share his vast tournament winning experience with the team. EXCEL believes Happy will thrive in this role.
- With this squad, EXCEL expects to be challenging the best teams in Europe and hope that in the not too distant future that they will win its first major VALORANT trophy.
