Fan Favorite VALORANT Player Joins Global Esports for 2024 Roster Overhaul

Benkai, a popular player in the competitive VALORANT scene, is leaving Paper Rex’s main team for VALORANT Champions 2023. He’s now going to play for Global Esports in 2024. This move marks the beginning of Global Esports’ efforts to create a new team after a not-so-great year.

The team didn’t do well in the past season. They had some bad performances, like getting knocked out early in the 2023 LOCK//IN tournament, finishing eighth in the Pacific regular season, and not making it through the Last Chance Qualifier. Because of this, the team decided to let go of all their starting players in September and start over with a new lineup.

On the other hand, Benkai is finally going to play in competitive matches again after being benched just before the Masters Tokyo event. His last game was on April 15th, and Paper Rex continued with a different lineup featuring something, f0rsakeN, mindfreak, Jinggg, and d4v4i.

Benkai, who is 26 years old, will lead Global Esports with his experience and leadership in the game. He’s known for his cheerful attitude, which has made him a favorite among fans worldwide. People have missed seeing his fun antics on stage, like dressing up in a dinosaur costume, and hearing his insightful commentary as an analyst on broadcasts.

However, Global Esports has a lot of work ahead. They need to build a strong team around Benkai in the coming months to prepare for the new year. To compete internationally, they’ll have to create a squad that can rival teams like Paper Rex, DRX, and T1.

Global Esports faces the challenge of constructing a competitive team around Benkai, aiming to contend with formidable opponents such as Paper Rex, DRX, and T1 on the international stage. The success of their roster revamp will depend on recruiting skilled players and establishing effective strategies, setting their sights on a stronger future in esports. Benkai’s return to the competitive scene adds excitement for both his fans and Global Esports supporters, as they anticipate his leadership and unique personality making a positive impact on the team’s performance.
