Dmitriy “dimasick” Matvienko, the ex-CS:GO Kazakh pro, has joined FunPlus Phoenix’s Valorant roster. Dimasick completed FPX’s roster after Johan “Meddo” Lundborg left in early December.
Bence “DeadFox” Böröcz, another ex-CS:GO pro, has joined the orgless team Need more DM. DeadFox will replace Norbert “Tigene” Pásztor, as members of Need more DM thought was “not trying to give [his] best every game and was not trying to be much better.”
Immortals announced that Jason “neptune” Tran and Jason “jmoh” Mohandessi have left the team. No reason was given other than this was a change made as the team is “heading into 2021.”
The entire Brazilian squad of Team One has announced that they will be benched and will wait until their contracts expire. Gabriel “cpx” Cruz explained on Reddit that the players will leave the organization as the two have different visions for 2021.
Magno “Pr0phie” Ramos completed the Spacestation Gaming roster after leaving Moon Raccoons in December. Make sure to read our full coverage of that signing!
The Thai team Attack All Around have announced their split as the players and the team had different visions for 2021. All of the players save for the coach, have joined another team called Foxy Araikordai.
Yannick “KOLER” Blanchette announced on Twitter that he was benched from NRG but still under contract. He had been signed from Immortals back in October.
Tucker “Tucker” Watson is out of Spot Up and looking for a team. No reason has been given for this parting. The team is now left with only four players.
Another Thai team disbanded for the same reason as Attack All Around: the players had different visions from the org.
The Portuguese team B7 Warriors said goodbye to Tiago “LionClaw” Moreira and their coach Felipe “Sef” Vieira. In exchange, Dmytro “dimaxx” Paliy and João “KILLDREAM” Ferreira join as players while Tiago “mowzassa” Rodrigues switched to coach.
