Gen.G have parted ways with Kenneth “koosta” Suen, from their active Valorant division, the Korean-North American organization announced on their Twitter handle. koosta represented Gen.G for a year and a month right after he made the switch from CSGO to Riot’s first-person shooter.
Koosta initially joined Gen.G CSGO from Cloud9 alongside Damian “daps” Steele and Timothy “autimatic” Ta at the end of 2019 and went on to win their first championship at the DreamHack Anaheim beating FURIA Esports in the Grand Finals. This was followed by him and company finishing first in the North American RMR event of ESL One: Road to Rio Major before Gen.G were forced to transfer list the roster due to the difficulties impeded by the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
On Gen.G Valorant, the team with koosta on board never got past the Challengers iterations dated right from the inaugural Stage 1 Challengers where they were denied a spot further by 100 Thieves in the third qualification event. In the Valorant Champions LCQ, they fell short of a map to beat Cloud9 in the Lower Bracket, ending their final run towards the Champions event in Berlin.
Gen.G recently were unable to qualify for the Stage 1 Challengers from both the qualifiers, forcing them to re-evaluate their options before the next Masters event which saw the Korean-American side part ways with Kenneth and his services. This ends the player’s time with Gen.G, whom he represented all the way back from 2019.
Gen.G will now trial players for their vacated position and will play out a series of smaller events to determine the outcome and lock their roster with a permanent addition.
Gen.G are now:
- Anthony “gMd” Guimond
- Shawn “Shawn” O’Riley
- Nicholas “NaturE” Garrison
- Emir “rhyme” Muminovic
- Chris “Elmapuddy” Tebbit (Head Coach)
