Latest Esports Update: Galaxy Esports leave VALORANT

Galaxy Esports has been marred with controversy once again. The organization has decided to leave VALORANT altogether.

Team manager Divyanshu “LONE” Singh took to Twitter to issue a statement. The statement read that the players have come to the decision to quit the organization due to delays in payments. He went on to iterate that the whole fiasco was not a scam but rather a delay in payments.

Galaxy Esports is a well-known roster that competed in the Malaysia/Singapore region in Asia Pacific. The roster picked up impressive wins this split of the VCT beating teams like BLEED eSports along the way.

The roster has a history of competing in the upper echelon in the Asia Pacific region. During the previous split of the VCT they competed under the banner of “No Namers”. The team reached the group stage of the VCT APAC Stage 1: Challengers Playoffs.

The roster’s in-game leader Felipe “skye” Skye Lim had this to say about the recent developments.

There was a lot of delay in salary, we tried everything possible the previous month. Initially the owners wanted to pay us via Paypal but later complained that there were a lot of tax cuts. So, after that we set up WISE as a payment method. Going into the new month we asked the owners to initiate the method early to avoid the last-minute hassle. However once again there was no initiation from them and one of the owners went MIA for weeks and ignored us.”

It also worth pointing out that one of the owners of the organization: Starkyy, took to twitter to clear all the doubts regarding the situation. His statement read that he’d tried everything possible to make payments but faced logistical issues due to Banking rules between the two countries. He also went on to say that the whole situation was not a scam but in fact unfortunate circumstances.

After the whole debacle unfolded on twitter, LONE issues another statement that stated that the players would indeed stick together for this entirety of the split. The roster will now once again compete under its previous banner, No Namers.

No Namers will take on Paper Rex next in the VCT MY/SG S2: Challengers Playoffs tomorrow. We here at esportscrazy wish No Namers all the best for their remainder of the VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT).
