Debanjan ‘DeathMaker’ Das has completed his transfer from GodLike Esports to Velocity Gaming, who have officially announced the acquisition. The North-East Indian superstar will now reunite with former teammate Sagnik ‘hellffr’ Roy at VLT.
The rumour mill was abuzz with reports of VLT buying DeathMaker out of his GodLike contract. As it so happens, GodLike announced DeathMaker’s departure yesterday, which was followed by the confirmation of the release of the entire Valorant roster apart from Vishal ‘haiVaan’ Sharma, who has been retained as a content creator.
